How to Access Fraiser Island

Situated at about 300km towards Brisbane’s northern coast , Fraser Island can be accessed in two ways. Many travellers take the barge at Manta Ray which runs along the length between the island’s southernmost tip and Inskip point. Incidentally Inskip point, has a beautiful campground and beach front. The barge leaves at 6am and runs continuously till 5.15pm each day. The journey is peaceful and takes about 10 minutes but ofcourse it can be a hefty price for a return journey with a car. If you are carpooling then the cost won’t be much but if not you might want to look at our second option.
Apart from taking a helicopter journey, there’s also the Fraser Island Barges. This service runs less frequently but the cost is comparatively cheaper.
