Spend your days exploring Queenslandâ€™s wild treasures, and your nights at beach resorts, on a guided 5-day tour to Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef. On Fraser Island, embark on nature walks through rain forests and along rocky coastlines, and splash around the waters of Seventy-Five Mile Beach and Eli Creek. Swim in an area known for its turtles and visit the world's largest turtle research center (April to October), enjoy the Mon Repos Turtle Centre conservation talk (November to March), and spot humpback whales (June to November). The second half of your trip takes you to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkeling, with optional upgrade activities such as scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. Most meals, round-trip transport, and accommodation make it easy to immerse yourself in Australiaâ€™s natural beauty.
Travel with a group of like-minded explorers on a guided tour of Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef, two of Australiaâ€™s UNESCO World Heritage sites!
Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world, created over millennia from sand drifting off of mainland Australia. You'll come to understand why the local Aboriginal people named it Kâ€™Gari, or paradise, as you explore freshwater lakes and creeks, giant sand dunes, and lush rainforest, among other natural treasures.
The next day, head further north to Kelly's Beach Resort, your home base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef. Take a full-day boat tour to Lady Musgrave Island on the Great Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel, swim in an area known for turtles, and discover the underwater world.
You will stay at beachside resorts in three locations, with your choice of a private room or shared accommodation. See Pricing for a range of lodging options. Each day, youâ€™ll enjoy various included activities, as well as the chance to participate in optional activities (at own expense). Three breakfasts, two lunches, and three dinners are included.
Please note: Tour pricing does not include National Park and ferry fees and Great Barrier Reef tax (AU$270 per person, cash), which must be paid to the driver on departure.
