The Ultimate Fraser Island Packing List

So you have booked your Fraser Island tour? Lucky you! Fraser Island is one of the most beautiful and unique places to visit on the east coast of Australia. It is the largest sand island in the world, which means that most people plan at least a 2 to 3 day trip so you will need to make sure you are prepared.

Located in Queensland and around 350km north of Brisbane, the weather on Fraser Island is generally sunny and warm all year round. However Australia is known for its unpredictable weather and as it can get quite windy on the island make sure that you pack a warm set of clothes. 

 

Luggage:

If you have booked a 2 or 3 day Fraser Island tour with Nomads you can store your travelling luggage at Nomads Noosa. A small backpack should be more than enough to carry what you need for the tour.

 

Australia Weather & Seasons:

  • Summer (December to February)

  • Autumn (March to May)

  • Winter (June to August)

  • Spring (September to November)

 

What to pack for your Fraser Island tour:

  • Sunscreen! Even if the weather appears to be cloudy, Australia’s ultra violet rays are extremely strong so you will need to be sun smart. After all, there is nothing worse than battling a horrible all over sunburn when on holidays

  • Sunglasses and a Hat

  • A small Backpack

  • Bathers of course! There are over 100 freshwater lakes on the island so it is pretty much a guarantee that you will be taking a dip in one of the many stunning lakes or creeks

  • Towel & Toiletries

  • A light waterproof jacket that you can comfortably wear in the sub tropical weather

  • Shorts and T-Shirt (and an extra pair in case you get a little wet)

  • A Jumper and pair of Pants (it can get a little windy at night and cool throughout winter)

  • Insect Repellent if travelling between October to March

  • Driver’s License (only needed if you are planning to drive one of the vehicles on a Tag Along tour)

  • Water Bottle as there are refill stations at the resorts

  • And of course, your camera!
