Fraser Island – World Heritage Wonderland


All you need to know to plan your adventure!

Fraser Island Self Drive

We were thrilled to recently be featured in an article by Expedia entitled ‘Experience the Best of Fraser Island’. We were chosen for our “outstanding hospitality” and “insider knowledge” of the best places on the island, how to get there, and the best way to experience its beauty.

Fraser Island lies just kilometres from our verdant Eco retreat and is the world’s largest sand island. The island is a world heritage site famous for its wildlife, seabirds, birds of prey, dingos, magnificent sand dunes, perched freshwater lakes (including the turquoise waters of Lake McKenzie and deep green Lake Wabby), and a rainforest that grows entirely out of sand. It is a must-see on any itinerary along the east coast of Australia.

A four-wheel drive is needed to negotiate the all-sand tracks on the Island, which include the famous Seventy-Five Mile Beach highway running along the surf side of the Island. The “beach highway” offers some of the best beach fishing in the world!

If four-wheel driving seems daunting to you, ask us to help you organise a tour – this way you can be sure you see all the amazing sights at their very best without the stress of organising a vehicle, permits and barges.

Alternatively we have an AMAZING new Fly / Drive package which allows you to experience the thrill of a self-drive adventure, but eliminates the difficult, dangerous and time consuming island crossing. Check out the details of this fantastic new Fly & Drive Package!

Our home, Emeraldene Inn and Eco-Lodge is a peaceful and relaxing boutique resort set back from the busy Hervey Bay Esplanade. No matter what’s on your itinerary, we look forward to welcoming you to our slice of paradise and sharing some of the area’s best kept secrets.

Check out the following resources from our blog for all the inside knowledge necessary to plan an adventure to suit your budget, skills and itinerary.
