We then 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. After a relaxing break, it's time for a rainforest track to walk off our lunch and explore the Island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too!
