Island Delight Tour Itinerary


Day 1 Brisbane to Fraser Island

Enjoy an orientation tour of the city and learn about opals with an Opal Demonstration.

Journey north along the Sunshine Coast to Hervey Bay for the ferry crossing to Fraser Island. Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world and enjoys a World Heritage Listing.

Fraser island is a place of exceptional beauty, with its long uninterrupted white beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, and over 100 freshwater lakes. Ancient rainforests grow in sand along the banks of fast-flowing, crystal-clear creeks.

Relax in the evening and enjoy a welcome drink with your tour director and other travelling companions.

Day 2 Fraser Island

Experience Fraser Island during a half day 4WD tour. Marvel at the majestic rainforest at Central Station; originally established as a forestry camp when there was logging on Fraser Island.

Wander along the short boardwalk around Wanggoolba Creek and through the rainforest.

Visit Lake McKenzie, a beautiful fresh water lake surrounded by white sandy beaches. The awe-inspiring beauty of Lake McKenzie makes it probably the most visited natural site on the island.

Lake McKenzie is a 'perched' lake; meaning it contains only rainwater, no groundwater, is not fed by streams and does not flow to the ocean. The sand here is pure, white silica and is not only stunning to look at but feels wonderfully soft to walk on.
