Itinerary

After pickup from your Hervey Bay hotel, head to the marina to begin your full-day cruise to Fraser Island.

Enjoy the scenic views of the largest sand island in the world while sipping on your morning tea. Keep a lookout for dolphins, sea turtles, and even humpback whales during winter.

Once you arrive, explore the island on foot and head to Wathumba Creek. From here you can go kayaking, swimming, or snorkeling in the beautiful waters. If water activities aren’t your thing, sunbathe on the sand or head out on a short bushwalk.

Return to the boat for a delicious buffet lunch before heading over to Awinya or Bowarrady Creek for more water activities.

Head back to Hervey Bay where a van is waiting to return you back to your hotel.
