Itinerary

Check in to casual and picturesque Hervey Bay situated on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, gateway to Fraser and Lady Elliot Islands. Hervey Bay is surrounded by kilometres of uninterrupted coast line, stunning beaches and calm waters.
Escape to Fraser Island where the adventure really begins. Scale silky sand dunes, explore eerie shipwrecks, hike to Lake Wabby, walk the Yidney Rainforest trails and refresh with a dip in Eli Creek. Marvel at the extensive Fraser Island marine life including sharks, dolphins and manta rays at Indian Head, before ending an action-packed day with a beachside sunset and barbecue.
Further explore Fraser Island's incomparable lush scenic walking trails, reinvigorating watering holes and abundant wildlife. Kick back on the white sands of 75 Mile Beach and simply allow the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean to lap at your feet.
Enjoy a scenic flight to a real East Coast gem, Lady Elliot Island, where more spoils of paradise await. Snorkel in coral lagoons, spot manta rays or inquisitive sea turtles and marvel at the vibrant marine life of the Great Barrier Reef. Tour the reef on a clear-bottomed boat, soak up the sun on the beach or learn about the delicate eco-systems on a walking reef tour. The variety of free and additional options on Lady Elliot Island are as plentiful as the turquoise waters, tropical fruit and fresh seafood.
Return to laidback Hervey Bay by air, spying marine life in the Great Barrier Reef below and soaking up memories of this awesome East Coast tour.
