Visit Fraser Island by 4WD
The worlds largest sand Island can be accessed by vehicle ferry from Inskip Point or River Heads near Hervey Bay.
The trip from Brisbane to Inskip Point is approx 3 hours, being 250 km North of Brisbane. There you can catch the Manta Ray vehicle ferry across to Fraser Island.
Fraser Island Barges leave from River Heads near Hervey Bay for those that also may wish to embark on a whale watching tour from Hervey Bay.
Barge fees are not included in hire but can be paid for prior boarding Barge. Refer to website for further details.
It is advisable to make the barge connection @ Inskip Point at low tide for safer & easier beach driving.
If camping on Fraser Island a camping permit will also need to be obtained – this can be done prior or paid for at Rainbow Beach.
You will not require camping permits if staying in one of the Resorts on Fraser Island at Eurong Village, Happy Valley or Kingfisher Bay resort or one of the houses available for rent on the island.
Brisbane to Beach 4WD’s are limited to as far north as Indian Head on Fraser Island due to the beach conditions further North being dangerous & less frequented.
