Sunrover Tours - 3 Day Fraser Island Escape
Explore the World Heritage wilderness of Fraser Island with an experienced guide. Walk through towering rainforest growing in sand. Discover huge sandblows moving across the island. Swim in beautiful fresh water lakes, wade in fast flowing creeks, drive along the world's most beautiful beach highway and marvel at coloured sand formations.
Drive from Brisbane through Noosa to Rainbow Beach, via the Noosa River cable ferry, Teewah Beach, the wreck of the Cherry Venture and the Cooloola Coloured Sands, or, when the tide is high, through the Cooloola National Park.
Early lunch at Rainbow Beach (own cost), the 4WD coach takes the vehicle barge from Inskip Point to Fraser Island and drives along the beach, then through beautiful eucalypt forest to Lake McKenzie. Swim in the clear blue waters and soak up the sun on the white sandy beaches.
Then travel on to Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village to check into your Wilderness Lodge.
Explore Lake Wabby, an impressive emerald green barrage lake being slowly engulfed by Hammerstone Sandblow.
Then drive along the world's most amazing highway, Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Visit the magnificent "Valley of the Giants" with your special guide. Majestic satinays and brushbox tower over an understory of palms and rainforest plants. Certainly the most impressive forest on sand anywhere in the world.
See the coloured sand formations at the Pinnacles and the famous Maheno shipwreck, and then swim in the fast flowing, clear, fresh water of Eli Creek.
Time to explore and enjoy Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village. Relax by the swimming pools, spa and outdoor bars - or discover the splendour of the garden decks, boardwalks, coffee and specialty shops in this award winning eco resort.
Adventurous? - perhaps keep to the nature theme of Kingfisher Bay by exploring the Great Sandy Strait beaches or bushwalking on self-guided tracks to the Lookout. Other activities include bird watching, sailing, fishing and canoeing.
Return to Noosa and Brisbane via the Kingfisher Bay Ferry or return directly to Hervey Bay.
