Take the kids sandboarding, floating down Eli Creek and swimming in the Champagne pools. Then, share some great stories around the campfire or take a beach walk that will have the kids entertained with the magic of beach life.
Sustainability and cultural respect are at the heart of what the company does, so your guide will also teach you and your kids about the significance of K'gari to the Butchulla people. Enjoy a sunset boomerang throwing lesson and a didgeridoo demonstration to learn about the oldest woodwind instrument in the world.

2-Day Guided Sightseeing Tour
Spend 2 days with your professional adventure guide, who will take you to the most amazing places of K’gari and amaze your kids! Learn how to drive a 4WD like a local and discover the best of this world heritage listed National Park.
Visit the freshwater turtles who live in Lake Allom. There's a boardwalk and lookout, from which you can spot these little cuties swimming about in the water. The journey along sandy tracks and through the rainforest is incredibly scenic.
Drive along 75 Mile Beach, to visit Eli Creek, the largest creek on the eastern coast. Take a stroll along the boardwalk inland, then hit the water and float back out towards the coast – this is a particular favourite with families thanks to its meandering lazy-river style experience.
A little further along is the Maheno Wreck, K'gari's most famous wreck. It ran aground on the coast during a cyclone in 1935, and it is now one of the island's most iconic attractions. Let little imaginations run wild with stories of pirates, sailors, and mermaids. It's also just a short drive from The Pinnacles, a series of colourful sandstone formations, which according to Dreamtime stories got its hues from a Rainbow Serpent protecting his love, a Butchulla woman called Wuru.
Located towards the north of the island, is Tukee Warru Headland (Indian Head), the most easterly point on the island. It boasts spectacular views, and excellent wildlife spotting opportunities – keep your eyes peeled for turtles, dolphins, and whales. Further around, past the headland are the Champagne Pools. These unique natural rock formations create shallow swimming holes, which are great for kids. They're filled by waves crashing in from the ocean, creating a fizzing "champagne" effect.
Having learnt the ins and outs of beach and sand driving, you'll then have 2 days to explore K'gari on your own, revisiting places the kids loved or exploring new, exciting and beautiful locations.
Make your way inland to Lake Boorangora (Lake McKenzie), a stunning perch lake located in the heart of the island, with clear blue waters and beautiful white sands. It's the perfect place to go for a refreshing swim, take a stand-up paddleboard out, or soak up the sun on the sand. The calm waters are perfect for swimming with children.
You can also visit Lake Wabby, the deepest lake on the island with its green waters and abundant fish life. It's fed by a natural spring and sits adjacent to the Hammerstone Sandblow. Alternatively, there's Lake Boomanjin, the largest perched lake in the world, which gets its deep reddish-brown colour from the tannin in the leaves from the surrounding Tea Trees – it's like swimming in a giant cup of tea! Finally, the tranquil waters of Lake Birrabeen also make for excellent swimming. Like Lake McKenzie, it has white sand and beautiful clear waters.
Your adventure should also include the Central Station Rainforest. Previously a logging camp, it's home to a vast array of the island's flora & fauna. Marvel at the soaring satinay trees, kauri pines, and the massive Angiopteris ferns. Take the scenic boardwalk through the rainforest along Wanggoolba Creek, listening to the quiet rustle of leaves and melodic birdcalls.
As you make your way back to Noosa on your final day, you can also check out Double Island Point, the Rainbow Beach Coloured Sands, and Cooloola National Park back on the mainland. These destinations are tide permitting, so always check the times before setting off.

Do you cater for any special dietary requirements?
Of course! The supplier offers alternative options for those that suffer from wheat, gluten or dairy intolerance and they also cater to vegetarian and vegan requirements easily and at no extra cost.
What do I need to bring?
You need to be prepared for all weather conditions when visiting Fraser Island so it’s always a good idea to bring:
- A small backpack
- Swim wear
- Warm jumper and a raincoat
- 1 litre refillable water bottle
- Insect repellent (Nov-Mar)
- Food for the self-guided days (the camp has a communal kitchen)
What are the requirements to drive the 4WD vehicles? Is it safe?
4WDriving around Fraser Island is heaps of fun and the highlight of the trip for many. There is no need to stress about navigating the beach or knowing all of the 4WD techniques - all you have to do is follow your guides wheel tracks and simple instructions. All vehicles on this tour are automatic and have constant 4WD, so you can relax and take in the scenery.
You are eligible to drive if you are over 21 years of age, you passed your drivers license more than 12 months ago, and you have a full, clean license.
You will need to show your ID Card Licence - it is illegal to drive in Queensland without having your licence on you, and if the police stop you on Fraser Island, you could receive a very hefty fine. You will need to provide an international translation if your licence is not written in English.
How is 4WDriving with kids?
One of the main attractions for coming to Fraser Island is the 4WD experience. Being the largest sand island in the world means there is a lot of driving involved to get to the different lakes and creeks around the island. We recommend not hiring a 4WD if you have children under the ages of 5 years old unless you are highly experienced. The inland tracks can be very bumpy.
Do you supply car seats?
We have child seats for children 5-7 years old.
Do you supply recovery gear with the 4WD hire?
Yes! We make sure you have all the gear when sending you off on your adventures. Our recovery gear includes snatch straps, recovery Trax and your tyre pressure gauge. We also supply you with a list of contact numbers in case of an emergency.
Is the accommodation inside the dingo fence?
The Beach Cabin options at Beachcamp are safely situated within the Dingo Fence so you can relax and enjoy your time here. There is a black gate that surrounds the community and we have our own private access to the beach if you want to walk down there. You will drive over an electric cattle grid when you enter the “dingo safe” area.
Is there a restaurant near the beach camp?
The retreat is based in Eurong Second Valley which is just a short walk from Eurong Resort. They offer a limited lunch and dinner menu and you can walk there within the dingo fence too.
What appliances are in the kitchen?
All the kitchens are fully equipped with gas stovetops, indoor BBQ’s, fridge/freezers and a woodfired pizza oven. You will also find all the essentials you would expect to find in a kitchen such as plates, cups, pots, pans, chopping boards etc. The retreat runs off solar power so we have to be conscious of power usage. This is why you won't find any kettles, toasters or microwaves in our kitchens but not to worry, we have whistling kettles, stove top toasters and coffee plungers. We advise planning your meals around not having an oven or microwave.
Are toiletries provided?
We provide eco-friendly Shampoo, Conditioner and body wash as the facility is on a sceptic and water treatment system so we are conscious about what we put back out into the environment. Toothpaste is fine so please bring that, we but we kindly ask that you use our toiletries provided to help us look after this beautiful island and our environment as a whole.
Do I need to bring linens and bath towels?
Nope! All hotel linens are provided in the tents which include your bottom sheets, top sheets, doona/duvet cover, pillows and pillowcases. Blankets and hot water bottles are provided through the winter months.
Is there power in the Beach Cabins?
All have power points that can be used throughout the day and evenings but can’t be left on overnight. There are also plenty of power points in the kitchens.
