Day 1 : Sample itinerary - Depart Rainbow Beach
We begin with a morning brief at Dingos Resort which will cover the packing of the cars, checking of equipment, Dingo safety and driver briefing. At 9.30am we depart for Fraser Island. We drive approximately ten minutes to the barge (ferry) and board for our ten-minute crossing. Once we have arrived on the world's biggest sand island, we then drive for one-hour to the Eurong resort along 75 Mile beach - Fraser Island's own highway with speed limits! There you can grab a coffee and chocolate croissant (own cost) for morning tea. From here is when the big adventure begins as we drive to the famous Lake McKenzie...arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of Fraser. Here we stop for some lunch, and for some quality time to have a play in the amazing clear waters with your new found friends. Around 3pm we drive up the beach to our campsite for an early dinner and some well deserved drinks and fun.
Meals :Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 : Eli Creek, Maheno Shipwreck, Indian Head
Rise in the morning for a quick breakfast before we begin our busiest day on Fraser Island and head off to see Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek perfect for a relaxing swim. Travelling north we then stop at Maheno Shipwreck for some photos and short history lesson about this famous Fraser Island icon. Shortly after we travel up to Indian Head, Fraser Island's highest point. From here you may be lucky enough to see whales and sharks in the ocean, before we travel to Champagne {Pools for a dip! We have lunch at either Maheno Shipwreck or Champagne Pools on Day 2 depending on time constraints, safety and beauty. In the afternoon we travel back to camp for dinner and drinks.

Start with breakfast, before our cleaning and take-down of our campsite. We then drive to the beginning of the Lake Wabby walk, where we walk through the sand dunes to this tropical paradise! Lunch follows our trip to Lake Wabby, before we begin our drive down the beach heading back to the barge. Once back on the mainland we head back to the 4WD shed where you unpack and quickly clean the cars. We return to Dingos and Frasers on Rainbow Resorts between 3pm and 4pm.

We love Fraser Island. It is such a unique natural wonder with it's fresh water lakes and lush forests. This trip is something different as you get to travel in real 4WD vehicles in the safety of a convoy and the private campsite is only meters from the white sand beach.

    As our most popular Fraser Island trip here at Real Aussie Adventures this tag along tour explores the stunning Fraser Island with self driven 4x4's and sleeps overnight in a private campsite just meters from the beach. Best bit is you get to sleep at night amongst sand dunes and forest. Dont worry there is basic washing and cooking facilities!
