Tourist Attractions in Fraser Island

Here is the list of things to do in Fraser Island and tourist attractions in city.

  1. Lake Mckenzie

    Water Body, Camp, View Point, Leisure

    This isn’t your run of the mill lake. It’s a perched lake – its waters accumulate on top of a thin later of impermeable organic material. As such, the lake is entirely rainwater – no river or underground stream feeds it. The aquamarine water is incredibly clear, and it’s actually too pure to sustain an aquatic life. The sand around the lake is a pure white, so...Read more
  2. Seventy-five Mile Beach

    Beach, Water Body, View Point, Walking Area

    Well, everything you need to know is in the uncomplicated name. It’s a beach. It’s 75 kilometres long. It’s beautiful, especially on balmy days when you can walk and walk and walk and never reach anywhere. There’s a lot to see though – ancient dunes in many colors, little streams bubbling their way to the ocean, tropical wildlife, an immeasurable number of birds. Y...Read more

    Maheno Wreck

    View Point

    It’s a startling landmark on an otherwise usually pristine beach – the ruins of a once magnificent ship rusting away on the sand. It’s been here for over eighty years. The Maheno was built in Scotland, and was the world’s first turbine driven steamer. And it was a luxury steamer too. During WWI, it was even a hospital ship. In 1935, a cyclone grounded the ship onto the b...Read more
  4. Central Station And Wanggoolba Creek

    Forest, Camp, Walking Area, Nature

    Established when the forests of Fraser still saw some logging, this station has now been converted into the best nature appreciation spot on the island. It’s now a world heritage site though, and logging is prohibited here. Here’s how to spend your time: The rainforest is strewn with trails and boardwalks that will take you through Wanggoolba Creek, Basin Lake and Pile Valley. Enjo...Read more
  5. Lake Wabby And Hammerstone Sandblow

    Water Body, Leisure, Lake, Nature

    Take your fill of this pretty little green lake that will charm you with its serenity! It’s a barrage lake, which means that it formed when adjacent sandmass, ( a giant sand dune called Hammerstone Sandblow here), blocked it from flowing or running off. Moreover, the sandmass is moving into the lake and will one day cover it completely. At 13 metres, this is the deepest lake on the F...Read more
  6. Eli Creek

    View Point, Picnic Spot, Nature

    On Fraser Island’s eastern side, this creek, the largest around, is a very popular place for swimming and picnicking. For many, a favourite activity is to walk some distance inland on the boardwalk, till a bridge is reached. From there, they swim or float down the waters till they reach the ocean. The water is said to be one of the world’s purest, having been sand-filtered for over ...Read more
  7. Lake Birrabeen

    Lake Birrabeen

    Water Body, View Point, Leisure, Lake

    Like Lake Mckenzie, this is a perched lake – crystalline aquamarine waters fed by rains that float above a layer of impermeable, decaying organic matter. Unlike Lake Mckenzie, there are far fewer tourists here, though the lake is nearly as beautiful. Swimming and picnicking aside, you can also climb over to the sand dunes here to take in sights of the ocean. The sand is superbly soft. You...Read more
  8. Champagne Pools

    Champagne Pools

    Water Body, View Point, Leisure, Nature

    You’ll find this place a little way north of the Indian Head. It’s also the only place around where saltwater swimming is allowed (the sea is too rough and to full of dangerous creatures). The pools are basically depressions in the rock, continuously refilled when seawater crashes into a fine and furious spray. The name itself comes from the foam that the crashing creates. The place...Read more
  9. Sandy Cape Lighthouse

    Light House, Garden, View Point

    There is an area in the water here on the north of Fraser Island, just off the shore, Breaksea Split, which was notorious for the sheer number of ships it sank. Even Captain Cook sank here. To help ships bypass it, this Lighthouse was built. It’s the tallest in Queensland, at 86 feet high, and it’s still active. Once powered by kerosene, today, it’s powered by solar panels. It...Read more
