DAY 1– The day is finally here, the first day of your awesome Fraser Island adventure with Nomads! We'll depart from Noosa nice & early at 7:30am. After we get your luggage in storage, you'll be heading towards Rainbow Beach where you'll be arriving after a 1.5-2hr drive. The refundable insurance cash deposit of $250 per person will be collected at this time, refunded in full provided the vehicle is returned un-damaged, or you can pay a non-refundable $10 excess reduction fee. We stop here for a quick coffee break and look-around, collect our food and the 4WD's and that's it: we’re on our way to amazing Fraser Island. We take the ferry from River Heads and land at Hook Point on the Southern tip of Fraser Island approximately 10 min later. Depending on the weather, and the tide your guide will assess whether it is safe to travel on the beach or if we need to select an alternative route to our next destination– The Southern Lakes. We first stop at Lake Boomanjin for a swim and a walk, then continue on to Lake Birrabeen where we have our lunch (delicious wraps and salad). After a relaxing break, it is time for a rainforest track to walk off our lunch and explore the Island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too! We then drive to Central Station on the way to our accommodation at Eurong Resort, where we'll be arriving around 5:30pm. After a refreshing shower, it’s dinner time!

DAY 2– Your second day means another early start so you get to make the most of your time on the island ! After breakfast (continental style breakfast - cereal, toasts, spread, tea& coffee), we drive up to stunning Eli Creek, the largest freshwater creek on the Eastern Coast of the Island , which carves its way through to the beach and pours 8 million litres of water a day into the Pacific Ocean! There are a number of walkways, and a short circular route that runs up one side of the creek and down the other. After spending some quality time here, we'll be heading up to the famous Maheno Shipwreck. The Maheno was driven ashore on Fraser Island during a cyclone in 1935 and provides you with some awesome photo opportunities. Next up, we continue north to the Coloured Sands comprising of 72 different colours of sand. At the Pinnacles, a natural wonder of Fraser Island made up of multicoloured sand cliffs, we stop for lunch (sandwiches, salads) and a break before driving up to Indian Head. Indian Head is a large rocky headland, which is great for shark spotting and stunning views over the island! After taking in the breathtaking scenery, we'll head over to our final stop of the day: Champagne Pools . This is a popular swimming hole with the ocean crashing over the rocks into shallow sandy pools. After an action-packed day we head back to our accommodation at Eurong Resort!
