Make the most of the day with an early start from Noosa (pick-ups from 5.45am). Drive 1.5 hours North to our last pick-up location, at the sleepy coastal town of Rainbow Beach. After checking that everyone has what they need for the day, it’s a short drive to meet our ferry at Inskip Point. Pay attention; the short cruise is a great opportunity to spot dolphins, dugongs, and other marine life before reaching the World Heritage-listed K’Gari (Fraser Island).

We head North along the island’s ‘Beach Highway’, 75 Mile Beach. We spend time at the un-missable Eli Creek, then travel along the coastline to the SS Maheno Shipwreck. After learning about the shipwreck’s colourful past, we head inland, meandering along some of the many tracks before arriving at Boorangoora (Lake McKenzie). Take your time to chill out or have a swim in the refreshing, crystal-clear waters. This is one of Australia’s most stunning and photographed locations.

It’s time to head to the old logging headquarters at Central Station, where your guide will provide some information about the logging history, towering rainforests, and the special silent waters of Wanggoolba Creek. Take the optional 1.8km walk through the rainforest along the creek and meet the guide at Pile Valley. From Pile Valley, we let the vehicle do all the work as we drive back out to the Eastern Beach along 75 Mile Beach to catch the ferry.

We drop off any passengers staying at Rainbow Beach before our drive back to Noosa, arriving at approximately 6-7 pm.

Please Note: the tides may impact the times that the ferry arrives and departs K’Gari (Fraser Island), so that may also impact the length of the time you spend at each of the attractions listed in the itinerary above. The order of destinations may also be affected by the tides. Your guide will advise you on the day of travel.
