Fraser Island Things To Do:

Fraser Island Lake McKenzie

2. Lake McKenzie is a true rain water lake not fed by any creeks or ground water sources. Lake McKenzie is one of Fraser’s biggest draw cards and located about 6 kilometres south of Kingfisher Bay Resort. It’s vibrant blue water against the pure white sand is really an unmissable experience. Take a dip mid hike or spend the day.

3. Eli Creek. A great pit stop to cool off. Grab a tube and a good book then spend your day floating in the current down the crystal-clear water creek. It can be quite busy, so avoid the peak times for some serenity. 

4. Maheno Shipwreck. A picturesque stop along 75-mile beach is the Maheno Shipwreck. It is a world war 1 hospital ship that was washed ashore in 1935 after a cyclone changed its course. Check out the wreckage and pay homage to your fellow world war one nurses at the same time.

5. Champagne Pools. Check the tides and head out for a frolic in the champagne pools. They are rock pools which are often full of fish and offer gorgeous views of the headland.

6. Bush Tucker Talk & Taste at Kingfisher Bay Resort. Settle in for a night of tasting as a Chef and Resort Ranger introduce you to native bush tucker and demonstrate how you can apply these flavours to modern cuisine. Covers everything from berries and leaves to crocodile and kangaroo.

7. Take a scenic drive along the sand tracks. Explore the island by 4WD and pick and choose your own favourite spots or take a picnic at Central Station. Also, a good way to go Dingo spotting.
