You are greeted by smooth, shimmering sand as the early-morning sun rises over 75 Mile Beach on Fraser Island. The overnight tide has washed away the tracks from the day before, making it feel like there’s no one on the island but you.
Choose to stop for a picnic lunch on the shore of Lake McKenzie, go bushwalking through the rainforest or head up the beach to Indian Head in your four wheel drive. As your tyres casting a fine seawater spray into the air, you catch a glimpse of a pod of humpback whales in the distance. They are making their annual migration from the cold waters of the Antarctic and are a familiar sight in the waters off Hervey Bay between June and November.
These are some of the special sights you can see during your visit to the Fraser Coast—a destination only 3 hours drive north of Brisbane that is full of natural beauty, off-road adventure and an enviable coastal lifestyle. Whatever you value in a holiday, the Fraser Coast has something for everyone.
