Cool Dingo Fraser Island Safari

Why we Love a Cool Dingo Fraser Island Safari
Cool Dingo Fraser Island Safari offers 3 full days to explore the largest sand island on the planet!
We love the all-inclusive tag, no cooking involved and fully guided by experienced, and fun, tour guides.
They get the balance right, see the best of Fraser visiting Lake McKenzie, Indian Head and more with like minded travellers.
Then in the evening there is a great social vibe, if you want it, at the Dingo Bar where a buffet dinner is served.
Plenty of food, good guiding and magical locations make this a must.

Your guide is a Fraser expert and is passionate about the island. You’ll be whisked off over sand tracks to explore some of the island’s most beautiful, natural spots – but they’ll also wow you with fascinating facts about the island’s history, fauna and flora.
Keep an eye out for dingoes, plus we have more than 354 species of birds, and migrating humpback whales can often be seen off the eastern beach from July to November!
Today we check out some of Fraser’s coolest, sub-tropical inland sights.
A picnic lunch out on tour & buffet dinner back at Kingfisher Bay Resort in the evening.
- Lake McKenzie – with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picture perfect Lake McKenzie is even prettier than the postcards.
- Central Station – no trains or whistles here – just peaceful, ancient rainforest and the reminders of a former, once bustling logging camp.
- Wanggoolba Creek – walk along the banks of this silent flowing creek with lush green rainforest and rare king ferns… it’s simply breathtaking.
- Pile Valley – check out the giant Satinay trees and imagine their timbers lining the Suez Canal.
- Basin Lake – enjoy a forest walk into beautiful Basin Lake – get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles – in this delightful perched dune lake before heading back to Kingfisher Bay Resort.
- The evening is free to socialise at the Dingo Bar where dinner is served. Guests are welcome to use the Kingfisher Bay Resort facilities also.
- Eli Creek – a great spot for a refreshing dip! Float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek – which pours out 80 megalitres of water daily – to the seaside.
- Maheno Shipwreck – washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935, this rusting wreck is one of Fraser Island’s iconic photo stops. You won’t be disappointed.
- The Pinnacles Coloured Sands – With all the colours of the rainbow (well just the reds, oranges, ochres and creams really) these vibrant sand cliffs are another favourite photo stop.
- Indian Head – climb to the top of this rocky headland for awesome island and ocean views… look out for sharks, rays and migrating humpback whales (Jul – Nov).
- Champagne Pools – chill out in these bubbling ocean rock pools, you won’t want to leave!
- Air Fraser offers spectacular scenic flights over the island – book with your guide on tour (extra cost applies)
- Lake Wabby – walk through the forest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser’s deepest lake and a favourite swimming hole. It’s so completely different to the rest of the island’s lakes and a real favourite of ours.
- Hammerstone Sandblow – trek over one of Fraser’s vast desert-like sand blows – no wonder it’s the world’s largest sand island – to the beach!
- Eurong Beach Resort – for lunch we head to Eurong for their famous all-you-can-eat lunch buffet.
- Lake Birrabeen – if you loved Lake McKenzie then Birrabeen will allure you with its sparkling clear waters and dazzling white beaches… you won’t be able to resist a dip. We think it’s a great way to finish the tour!
