Fraser Island is one of the most unique locations in Australia. It’s the largest sand island in the world and is home to ancient rainforests, crystal clear lakes, tranquil flowing creeks, winding 4WD tracks, and an abundance of Australian plants and wildlife. It’s an adventurer’s playground, and with so much to see and do, it’s one of the best places to visit and vacation in the country!
Fraser Island is found on the Fraser Coast and is reached by a ferry boat from either the Rainbow Beach area or Hervey Bay area. Day and overnight tours venture to Fraser, allowing guests to spend up to several days exploring and enjoying this beautiful part of Australia. Tour types to choose from include 1 day, 2 days and 3 days, with both tag-along tours and guided tours available. Tag-along tours allow you to drive a 4WD vehicle on the island, following a lead car, while a fully guided tour is often times conducted from a 4WD bus. There are many different accommodation types on the island with a type of tour for everyone.
While on Fraser Island you can look forward to visiting some of its major attractions such as Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, Champagne Pools, Maheno Shipwreck, 75-Mile Beach, Indian Head and more. Each tour has a different itinerary that is dependent on both the length of the trip and the change of the tides, as you use the beach track to reach most places.

There are 3 types of bus passes passengers can choose from: WHIMit, Hop-on, Hop-off and direct.
WHIMit passes range from 7 - 365 days and allows for maximum use, giving the user as much use as they want during their time frame. This is especially useful for those who are travelling for an extended amount of time and plan to move around a lot.

Direct travel means it’s from point 'a' to point 'b' only, with no allowed stops along the way.
