Make a sunny escape to the world’s largest sand island
The local Butchulla people call Fraser Island K’gari, which means paradise, and you’ll find out why soon enough, on a 5-day tour that shows off all the highlights of this World Heritage-protected place. The largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island is home to ancient rainforest, sweeping sand dunes and some of the purest water anywhere on earth, just waiting for you to take a refreshing dip. With the expertise of a local leader, a few nights of camping under the stars, and lots of time to relax and soak up the rays of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, this is a true island life adventure.
With relaxed days and lots of free time to explore on your own, this tour is the perfect mix of local leader expertise and go-at-your-own-pace travel.
Fraser Island is a World Heritage site and, with expert guidance from your leader and a couple nights in a protected campground, you’ll get to experience all the highlights while still only leaving a delicate footprint.
Spend your days wandering amid a tropical paradise tucked within sand dunes and swimming in some of the purest water on the planet, then unwind in the evenings at your beachside campground and hostel accommodations.
Take a dip in the bubbling Champagne Pools, so named for their unique formation along the ocean’s edge, where incoming waves create fizzy seafoam – one of the most unique natural attractions on Fraser Island.
With ferry and 4WD transportation included and arranged for you, you’re free to sit back, relax and leave all the logistics to your leader.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
Come prepared to be flexible with your days and ready for an adventure! Daily itineraries may be changed due to tides and weather conditions to ensure you maximise your time on Fraser Island.
Please note that this is a participatory trip. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and help out with camp activities like food preparation and washing up. It’s all about giving a hand. Tents on Fraser Island are twin share and will already be set up for you. Camping gear (sleeping bag, sleeping mat and pillows) are all provided. Campground facilities include flushing toilets and coin-operated showers (at a minimal extra cost to encourage water conservation - please bring $2 coins for this purpose). In Rainbow Beach accommodation is in simple dormitory style multi-share hostel rooms, perfect for travellers on a budget.
