ALL HIGHLIGHTS AND ACTIVITIES

** Champagne Pools

One of the most popular attractions on Fraser Island - The Champagne Pools. Relax in the naturally bubbling pools as the waves rush over the rocks and into the pools below. Its really like being in your own tub of champagne, as colourful tiny fish swim around you in aqua heaven.

** Lake Wabby

Lake Wabby is the rarest form of lake in the world (a Barrage Lake), which is slowly filling in with sand, and will disappear within the next 70 - 80 years. The Islands deepest lake, Lake Wabby enjoys the reputation of the "Sand Dune lake, as you can roll down the sand dune into the water. Enjoy the incredible windblown sand dune landscape of Hammerstone Sandblow on the Way into Lake Wabby.

** Lake Birrabeen

Lake Birrabeen is one of 4 spectacular Blue Lakes found on Fraser Island. With snow white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue fresh water, set in the middle of beautiful rainforest, Lake Birrabeen is a tour highlight on Fraser Island. Less well known and harder to access than Lake McKenzie, Lake Birrabeen is the largest of the Blue Lakes, and considered by locals and those in the know as the most beautiful lake on Fraser Island.

** Indian Head

Indian Head on the Northern end of 75 Mile Beach is a spectacular Rocky Headland famous for never-ending views along the eastern beaches and out to sea. Here we see marine life on display, as Dolphins, Turtles, Sharks, Fish and migrating Humpback Whales gather around Indian Head in full view for us to enjoy.

** Eli Creek

Eli Creek is the Largest fresh water stream flowing out to sea on the Eastern side of Fraser Island. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool sand filtered water as it flows between the sand dunes and out onto the beach. A board walk is built along the banks of the creek for those who want to just take pictures.

** Maheno Ship Wreck

One of the worlds most photographed shipwrecks, the SS Maheno on 75 Mile Beach stands as a beautiful contrast between a pristine beach and a man made structure. Learn about the terrible night when the SS Maheno found itself beached on Fraser Island during a cyclone off the Fraser Coast in 1935.

** Fraser Island Rainforest

The ONLY place in the world to grow rainforest in sand, Fraser Island's World Heritage Listed Rainforests are truly special. Enjoy the beautifully unique "Pile Valley " Rainforest walk, as you discover Central Station, Woongoolba Creek and Giant Satiney Trees.

** The Coloured Sands

The stunning coloured sands are a photographic masterpiece. See the myriad of colours on display, as natural leaching of oxides and vegetable matter stain the each grain of sand over thousands of years.

** Snorkeling

Enjoy snorkeling on the world largest reef. See fish and coral seen nowhere else in the world. Snorkel the famous "Turtle Cleaning Station," and enjoy watching Turtles being cleaned by small fish.

** Scuba Diving

This is an optional extra and costs extra to participate. Enjoy the best scuba diving prices on the reef, with introductory dives available for the beginners, and outer wall dives for the licenced diver. A must do experience…

** Coral Cay Walk

Get off the boat and on land to experience the wonders of a coral cay Island in the South Pacific. See this untouched Island on your guided walk, and learn about the wildlife and unique features of this coral Island.

** Glass Bottom Boat

Take a ride with your experienced guides to see the underwater beauty without getting your face wet. See turtles, coral, fish and much more in comfort and style.

** Semi-submersible Submarine

Take underwater viewing to another level, as the semi-submersible submarine takes you under the water to see the reef at a fishes perspective. Enjoy the Great Barrier Reef like never before.

** Underwater Observatory

Attached to the large boat pontoon is our very own underwater observatory. See the fishing feeding from another perspective, as fish of all sizes come up for a feed.
