Have some fun exploring a World Heritage Site and the worlds largest sand island on this day tour of Fraser Island This is guide is specifically meant for a short day tour of Fraser Island. The island could easily be explored for several days but this guide will hit some of the major sights to see on the island. From Hervey Bay you will take a ferry over to Fraser Island unloading near POI #1 (there are several ferry docking sites near POI #1). You can take a guided tour or rent a burly 4x4 vehicle and head off on your own. When I was here I was in a 4x4 bus and did not have a gps with me so the track across the island to the east side in this guide is my best guess at the route we took. If you are on your own I highly suggest you obtain a detailed map of the island roads as they are all sand and getting stuck and lost would not be fun. When you get to the east side you will be traveling up and down the 75 mile beach to see an old ship wreck, take a stroll through a warm sandy creek and then travel south to explore a freshwater lake that is slowly getting swallowed by a sand dune. You'll then return through the Yidney Rainforest again to the ferry and head back to Hervey Bay.
