Day 1: Sunshine Coast > Rainbow Beach > Fraser Island
After a couple of pick-ups along the Sunshine Coast, your first stop is Rainbow Beach's massive Carlo Sandblow. Take a path through eucalypt stands and rainforest to reach this huge accumulation of windblown sand known as the Cooloola sandmass. As you cross the sandblow, marvel at this ever-changing landscape, transformed by wind. From the top you'll enjoy stunning 180-degree views over Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island (K'gari). Next, you'll continue to the ferry that will transport you across the water to stunning Fraser Island (K'gari) (a 10-minute crossing). In 2021 Fraser Island had been officially renamed K’gari, the original Butchulla people’s name for the island, meaning 'paradise'. The move was celebrated with a ceremony with Elders and representatives of the region's traditional owners. The name change is a major milestone in a long running campaign by the Butchulla people. Once you’ve arrived on the world’s largest sand island, drive along 75 Mile Beach – K'gari's own “sand highway” complete with speed limits. Now your adventure really begins, with a drive to Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek that’s perfect for a relaxing swim. Travelling north, stop at the Maheno Shipwreck for a photo opportunity and a chat about this famous Fraser Island icon. In the afternoon, travel to your campground for dinner and drinks.
Day 2: Fraser Island
Today begins with a quick breakfast to fuel your busiest day on Fraser Island (K'gari). Your first stop is famous Lake McKenzie, one of the island’s most popular and picturesque highlights. Stop here with time to relax on the white sand beach or swim in the lake’s amazingly clear waters. Lake McKenzie sits above the water table so it’s comprised entirely of rainwater and is too pure for the plants and fish you’d find in most lakes. Head onwards to the ancient rainforest-surrounded Central Station, Wanggoolba Creek and Pile Valley before driving back up to your campground accommodation. Settle in for dinner and perhaps a few drinks with your group.
Day 3: Fraser Island > Sunshine Coast
After breakfast, you’ll drive to Lake Wabby, a deep green lake at the base of the sweeping crystalline white hills known as the Hammerstone Sandblow. Young Butchulla men were once brought here to train as warriors, running up and down the sand hills until they were considered ready to hunt. Hammerstone is advancing at around a metre a year which means that in less than 100 years Lake Wabby will probably be gone. Yet another reason to visit this special place now. Enjoy lunch before driving down the beach to the barge, which you’ll catch to Rainbow Beach and travel back to Noosa and Maroochydore where you’ll be dropped off by your leader at around 5pm.
