A Day’s Worth of Exploration
You’ll get to discover Fraser Island’s best points on a 4WD. You can opt to get behind the wheel and follow a lead car. Alternately, you can let an experienced driver worry about navigating sandy depths. Fraser Island is scattered with spectacular rainforests, sprouting forth from sandy beds. Sapphire blue and emerald green waterways bless the island with crystal clear fresh water. Here are some of the highlights of a one day tour.
The most sought after lake in Fraser Island, Lake McKenzie is blessed with pristine white sand and refreshing and warm waters. The lake is great for swimming and soft sand is great for walking. You’ll find the lake’s blue and green hues enthralling.
75 mile Beach
This is an iconic beach track which is only suitable for 4WDs. The sandy surface of the highway seems smooth but sea and tide cause unexpected yet admittedly fun bumps. It is fun but caution must be applied when driving. You won’t be able to drive during high tide.
Central Station and Wanggoolba Creek
Once the birthing place for women, Central Station is nestled close to the Wanggoolba Creek. In 1920, the clearing was the base for the island’s forestry operation. During the days of logging, there was a logging village set up in the area. Today, Central Station is a popular picnic area shaded by trees including massive Kauri Pines.
The largest freshwater stream on eastern side of Fraser Island, Eli Creek flows into the ocean quietly. You can go on the boardwalk inland and enjoy the surrounding beauty. Eli Creek is great for floating on your back. Simply let the current whisk you away.
The legendary story of Maheno shipwreck involves stories of shipwrecked crew member camping on Fraser Island. After a career involving a stint as a hospital ship during World War I and more, the ship sank in 1935. The crew tried to fix and refloat the vessel but it was well and truly gone.
