Brisbane to Fraser Island Adventure Drive

Multiple Locations

Explore the back roads, cruise past surf beaches and discover the beauty of the Noosa River Everglades. This drive will take you through some of the Sunshine Coast's most iconic towns before heading to Maryborough, Hervey Bay and on to your final destination, the magnificent Fraser Island.

The majority of the roads on this drive are sealed which means it's an adventure suitable for cars as well as four wheel drive vehicles however there are a few rough patches along the way so be sure to check conditions before you set off.

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout can be found 30 kilometres north of Brisbane, just off the Bruce Highway and is well worth checking out. You'll have to walk a little to get to the lookout but you won't be disappointed with the 360 degree panoramic views at the top.

Explore the Sunshine Coast towns of Caloundra, Maroochydore and Noosa - where you can find great food, beautiful beaches and lots of activities for the family. For some peace and quiet, drive to Boreen Point on the Noosa River, where you can hire a kayak or windsurf to enjoy Lake Cootharaba with all its birdlife. From Boreen Point turn off to Elanda Point and enjoy a picturesque drive to Wolvi, then north east towards the towns of Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach.

On your way to the river-port city of Maryborough you'll have a chance to stop in the quaint fishing villages of Poona, Maaroom, Boonooroo and Tuan. Then cruise north to Hervey Bay - best known as the place there the whales 'come to play'. The town has a great selection of accommodation as well as beachside cafes, restaurants and gift shops.

It's then just a short drive to River Heads to catch the ferry to the unique World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

Rainbow Beach to Hervey Bay

Nestled between World-heritage listed Fraser Island and the natural beauty of Cooloola National Park, Rainbow Beach is just under one and half hours drive from Noosa and has some of the most amazing natural wonders of the world. Explore the coloured sands of Rainbow and let the view from the massive Carlo Sand Blow take your breath away. You can also skydive, para-glide, four wheel driving on the beach or scuba dive in one of Australia's top diving destinations - Double Island Point. You can catch a barge ride to Fraser Island or wait to catch the barge from River Heads near Hervey Bay where your journey ends.

Rainbow Beach has a bustling shopping precinct, a country style pub which serves great meals and accommodation ranging from camping to resort style apartments. You can also take a short detour to Tin Can Bay, (90 minutes south of Hervey Bay) a fishing and boating paradise, just off the southern tip of Fraser Island. Here you can feed the wild dolphins next to the boat ramp between 0700 and 0800. Poona, Tuan, Maaroom, Boonooroo and Tinannbar are also worthy of dropping in for a look around, fish or kayak.

Hervey Bay to Fraser Island via River Heads

After kicking back in Hervey Bay, it is time to venture to World Heritage listed Fraser Island, one of the natural wonders of the world. Your visit will take you to unforgettable places such as Central Station, home to more than 100 people in the 1920's timber logging days. Central Station is set in rainforest and showcases its history along with several forest walks to peaceful Wanggoolba Creek and Basin Lake. Magnificent Lake McKenzie, edged by pure silica sand, is one of the best known freshwater lakes and a popular swimming spot with visitors. To see one of the world's rare dune lakes visit Lake Wabby. The Butchulla indigenous people believe The Cathedrals - iconic cliffs of coloured sands - were permanently stained when the gods brushed up against them. Eli Creek pumps four million litres of water into the ocean every hour and is the largest freshwater creek along the eastern side of the island and a great water playground! You can join other tourists in Champagne Pools where waves crash over the rocks and stop to have your photo taken at the Maheno wreck.

Burketown

The Gulf Savannah is an interesting region to visit all year. However during the monsoon season, transportation methods must be carefully considered, as some parts of the Gulf Savannah region suffer from a lack of road infrastructure.

Julia Creek

Julia Creek, McKinlay Area

McKinlay

Mckinlay, McKinlay Area
Located 104 kilometres south east of Cloncurry, McKinlay was named after the McKinlay River which was discovered and named by the explorer John McKinlay. McKinlay had arrived in New South Wales in 1836 and by 1861 had become such an adept bushman that he was chosen to lead the South Australian Burke Relief Expedition to search for the missing Burke and Wills.

Mount Isa

Mount Isa, Mount Isa Area
Affectionately known as the 'oasis of the outback', Mount Isa is a gleaming mirage on the horizon for travellers from all directions. Nestled among the ochre-red Selwyn Ranges, on the banks of the Leichhardt River, Mount Isa is a bustling melting pot of culture and industry and also home to the world's third largest rodeo.

Duchess

Duchess, Cloncurry Area
In earlier days Duchess was an important railway and mining town which has declined since the advent of road transport. Today, relive the glory days over a drink or two at the local Duchess Hotel where the beer and stories flow.
