Why Do We Love This

OUR TEAM OF TRAVEL EXPERTS RATED THIS AS A 2022 TOP TOUR BECAUSE...

 

"With over 20 years in the tourism industry, the team behind this tour want you to have the best possible adventure while creating memories that will last a lifetime."

"This tour also includes everything you’ll need for an amazing Fraser Island adventure; including 4X4 vehicles, a variety of fresh, delicious meals, camping equipment including sleeping bag and pillow and there's no extra hidden costs!"

 

What to Expect

Visit World Heritage-listed Fraser Island (K’Gari) on the ultimate Australian beach 4X4 driving and camping adventure. Experience 4X4 driving yourself in one of the tag-along vehicles whilst visiting one of Australia's most amazing freshwater lakes and ancient rainforests!

 

Day one starts early with a 7am departure from Rainbow Beach, where you'll take the barge across from Inskip Point to Fraser Island. Once the tires hit the sand on the other side, you'll take the awe-inspiring drive up the first portion of 75 Mile Beach to Eurong. Then, turn inland towards Lake McKenzie, one of the most beautiful locations on the island. On arrival, take a dip in these incredibly pure, clear waters. Words do not do this amazing lake any justice.

 

Following Lak McKenzie, you'll drive to Central Station where you'll eat lunch and walk along the waters of the very special Wanggoolba Creek. Learn Fraser Island’s history in a time before this beautiful island was protected. You'll then leave for a drive back to 75 Mile Beach and onto the camp. Chill out for a bit, then it's time for dinner. Cook a BBQ together with your new Fraser family and spend the night socializing together next to a campfire or under the covered seating area.

 

On Day 2, you'll wake up early (hangovers are no excuse!) to a delicious breakfast of toast and cereal before getting back in the cars to head further north. Arrive at the Champagne Pools to cleanse under awesome waves crashing over into the natural rock pools, creating the bubbly “champagne" effect they're famous for.

 

Then, it's back to the cars again for a short drive to to the stunning Indian Head (one of the few rock formations on the island). Here, climb to the top for a chance to spot the amazing marine wildlife that can be seen off of Fraser Island. If luck is on your side, you may spot humpback whales (August – October), sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, huge rays, and many schools of tropical fish. Next, drive back to camp for lunch and before heading onto the next location.

 

Following a short drive down the beach, discover the largest creek on the Eastern Beach; Eli Creek. Take a walk up the boardwalk with a rubber ring and float down these serene waters. Eli Creek pumps up to 4 million litres of freshwater into the sea every hour! 

 

The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek; the Maheno shipwreck. As the sun lowers in the sky, watch the rusty wreck against the sea sky and discover the incredible coloured sands seen up the coast. Finally, take a short stop at The Pinnacles on the way back to camp. Seen from the beach, this sand formation is a prime example of the coloured sands seen all up the Fraser Coast.

 

Arriving back at camp to take a breather after an amazing day, wash away the sand in the amazing amenities block just a short walk from our campsite, before a delicious dinner. Tonight, enjoy spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread, followed by another night of socialising under some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most spectacular stars.

 

The last day in paradise includes another yummy breakfast before setting off to the final location. Drive a moderate distance down the Eastern Beach to the entrance of Lake Wabby. Here, walk for around 45 minutes down a beautiful sand track, through the bush and out onto the Hammerstone Sandblow. Located a short walk along the sand blow, Lake Wabby is the deepest lake on Fraser Island, so be sure to take a dip and chill next on its shores.

 

After lunch on the beach, it is time to make your way back to the barge and Rainbow Beach. Arrive back between 1pm and 4:30pm (dependent on the tides).

Fraser Island is a beautiful place to visit all year round!

Swimming along the coast on Fraser Island is not recommended as there are dangerous sharks and dangerous rip tides. There are also no lifeguards along the coast on Fraser Island. There are plenty of freshwater lakes on Fraser Island that are safe to swim in and Champagne Pools is the only safe saltwater swimming area.

It is highly recommended that you meet your tour at Pippies Beachhouse in Rainbow Beach between 9am and 4pm the day before you depart. This is so they can explain a few things about the tour and the island, as well as sign a waiver and watch a video before your early departure the next morning.

If you are unable to attend, it is very important that Pippies know you will not be there in time. You can let them know your arrival time when you confirm your booking at https://www.pippiesbeachhouse.com.au/confirm-tour. If you are unable to attend you can then expect an email from Pippies on the afternoon before departure containing all information you have missed, as well as the online waiver and video. Please read this email carefully and follow all instructions before you meet in the morning.

All bookings must be confirmed by visiting https://www.pippiesbeachhouse.com.au/confirm-tour 48 hours before you arrive in Rainbow Beach to confirm your tour.

 Start times are approximate. They change due to tidal and weather conditions. Pippies will notify you if there are any adjustments.
