Ideal for a relaxing day trip to Fraser Island, this tour offered by The Discovery Group caters for small groups of no more than 24 per vehicle. Beginning with an early morning pick up from Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, you'll travel through Toolara State Forest, with your first stop at Rainbow Beach township before transferring to your 4WD vehicle for the day.

From here it's a short drive to Inskip Point where you board the ferry for the world's largest sand island! Enjoy the scenic journey up 75 Mile Beach to a freshwater creek on the beach for morning tea and spotting for wildlife such as dingoes or whales (July-November). Venture into the heart of the island to visit the famous and beautiful Lake McKenzie where you have free time to enjoy a swim in the clear waters, relax on the white sandy beach or explore the area. After lunch, learn about the history of Fraser Island at Central Station and then opt for a self-guided journey alongside Wanggoolba Creek through the rainforest to Pile Valley. The tour returns through the towering forests of satinay and brushbox trees back to the beach highway for a ferry trip back to the mainland.

Operated by The Discovery Group, this one day tour is the ideal introduction to the largest and most beautiful sand island in the world.
