Fraser Island 

How to get there

Fraser Island is 3 hours north of Brisbane and is just off the shores of Hervey Bay and Rainbow Beach. There are two car ferries that can get you to the Island, 1 just down the road from Hervey bay and the other from Inskip point near Rainbow Beach.

S.S. Maheno 

The SS Maheno, once a prominent ocean liner owned by the Union Company of New Zealand, plied the waters of the Tasman Sea, shuttling passengers and cargo between New Zealand and Australia for three decades, from 1905 to 1935. Notably, it played a pivotal role during World War I when it served as His Majesty's New Zealand Hospital Ship No. 1, repurposed by the New Zealand Naval Forces to provide crucial medical support during the conflict. Today, the SS Maheno now rests on the beaches of Fraser Island, its final resting place, a haunting and iconic relic of maritime history. 

Lake McKenzie

Lake McKenzie, a hidden gem deep within Australia's Fraser Island, is a natural wonder that captivates all who visit. This stunning lake boasts crystal-clear waters that defy belief with their ever-changing hues. The secret to its beauty lies in the pristine white silica sand that blankets its shores and extends into its depths. This fine silica, combined with the pure rainwater that filters through it, creates an environment of unparalleled clarity and purity. Under the bright sun, the lake dazzles with a vibrant turquoise, while as the day progresses, it transforms into deeper blues and emerald greens. Surrounded by lush rainforest, Lake McKenzie offers a serene escape where visitors can bask in the unspoiled beauty of nature, relax on its soft sandy shores, and witness the dynamic artwork painted by the play of sunlight on its water. It's a testament to the awe-inspiring wonders of the natural world and a must-visit destination for those seeking a profound connection with nature's splendor. 

Champagne Pools

Champagne Pools was an absolute delight to explore and swim in. The natural rock pools gave off a relaxing spa-like vibe, as the crashing waves danced upon the rocks, conjuring up effervescent bubbles reminiscent of champagne in these captivating pools. 

Eli Creek

Eli Creek was another incredible highlight of the journey. This pristine freshwater creek, with its crystal-clear waters flowing into the ocean, was nothing short of breathtaking. The real adventure, though, was hopping onto some inflatables and effortlessly drifting downstream with the gentle current. But if that wasn't your cup of tea, you could just as easily unwind in a camp chair, dipping your toes into the unbelievably clear waters while soaking in the mesmerizing surroundings.
