5 Places You Should See on Fraser Island

Did you know that Fraser Island is the largest sand island on the planet? Because of the island’s size you really do need a minimum of two days to explore and there are so many amazing places to choose from. To make it a little easier for you to decide which Fraser Island tour to book we have prepared a list of the top 5 ‘must sees’ on Fraser Island.

1. Indian Head Lookout

At the very end of Fraser Island’s 75 mile beach you will find Indian Head – the most eastern point on the island. This lookout was given its name by Captain James Cook when he spotted 3 Aboriginals standing on the headland. The views from the top are well worth the visit – your Instagram will thank you!

2. Lake McKenzie

Lake McKenzie is probably one of the most popular attractions on Fraser Island for a reason. Perched upon sand dunes that stand at 100m above seawater, the lake is made purely of rainwater. The sands are pure silica and are said to provide the ultimate body exfoliation. Due to its purity the water is a crystal clear blue – definitely a must see!

 

3. Maheno Shipwreck

A popular landmark on the eastern coast of Fraser Island’s 75 mile beach, the SS Maheno was washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935. ‘Maheno’ is a Maori term for ‘island’ and the boat was purchased to sail between Sydney and New Zealand. Today the shipwreck is a popular island attraction and an absolute must do.

 

4. Eli Creek

Nestled on the eastern side of Fraser Island, Eli Creek is the ultimate swimming spot. The waters of the creek are said to travel from the island’s sand dunes over a period of 200 years in which the water is unexposed to the outside environment. Situated within towering rainforest, it the perfect spot to take a dip.

 

5. The Pinnacles

Also known as the Coloured Sands, the Pinnacles are a natural phenomenon is a result of years of erosion and the island’s natural elements. The cliffs look somewhat like a Cathedral and boast distinct colours of red, yellow, orange and brown.
