Fraser Island is scattered with heavenly blue lakes and slow flowing creeks. Splash in the refreshing waters of Lake McKenzie or Lake Birrabeen. At Eli Creek, simply lie on your back and let the current float you.
Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island. Millions of years of ocean currents helped to form the sandy dunes of Fraser Island, covering the bedrock with sand from the seas. The island is famous for its many hued sandy stretches north of Eli Creek.
Exploring the Great Barrier Reef
You’ll then cruise to Musgrave Island to gear up and snorkel to meet sea creatures at the Great Barrier Reef. The crystal clear waters of Lady Musgrave Island and the fringing reef create lovely environs for turtles. Green Turtles and Loggerhead Turtles frequent salty depths near Lady Musgrave Island. In fact, the best time to see turtle hatching falls between January to March.
But, turtles won’t be the only wildlife you’ll encounter during the trip. Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef shelter famous dingoes, kangaroos and of course dolphins and rays.
