How Do We Get To Fraser Island?


From the South via Noosa, Double Island Point and Rainbow Beach - Plan A

This is the best option, when the tides are right. Take in the view along Teewah Beach and visit the Cooloola Coloured Sands on your way to Fraser Island. The 10 minute barge trip from Inskip Point on the mainland to Hook Point at the southern tip of Fraser Island is also the cheapest.

From the South via the Freshwater Road - Plan B

If conditions are not right or safe at the Rainbow Beach 8 Mile rocks, Plan B involves a scenic detour via the Freshwater Road.

From the South via Gympie - Plan C

Third best option: When you have to travel at a time other than low tide, use the highway. This route is longer in distance but about the same in travel time.

From the North - Plan D

Via vehicular ferry from River Heads, 20km south of Hervey Bay. Land at Wanggoolba Creek on the western side of Fraser Island. There is no need to consider tides on this route. However, barge bookings are essential and departure times are limited.
