Full description

Rainbow Beach is a perfect spot for a beach holiday. It is ideally situated next to the world’s largest sand island. On a day trip to the world-famous Fraser Island, learn fascinating facts about its history, fauna, and flora. 

Then stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient king ferns, towering ghost gums, and pine trees. Continue to Lake McKenzie and swim in the crystal blue waters or relax on the sandy beaches.

On arrival at Seventy-Five Mile each, you can choose to take a flight over the island or float down Eli Creek and enjoy the crystal clear freshwater. 

Visit the Maheno Shipwreck, and snap some photos of the rusting wreck. See The Pinnacles Coloured Sands in all their glory and learn how they were created. A lunch at K'gari Beach Resort (formerly Eurong Beach Resort) provides an opportunity to stop at the general store gift shop.

I did the tour 9 years ago with another provider and the exact same points are still approached. There is no breakfast here but as described a rich lunch buffet. I can recommend the tour because it offers a good mix of driving, exercise and water activities and after one day you're already done.

Fraser Explorer Tours was easy and friendly to deal with and even though the day tour from Rainbow Beach appears expensive, it's completely worthwhile to enjoy the unique, largest Sand Island in the world. The tour was really satisfying and enjoyable and Kev, our driver/guide made it entertaining and very interesting.
