Make your own four wheel drive adventure on Fraser Island! Fraser Island is strictly four wheel drive territory and Fraser Island Barges operate vehicle barges from Hervey Bay to help get you there.
Fraser Island Barges operate two services on separate schedules that run daily. The Fraser Venture vehicle barge operates between River Heads / Hervey Bay and Wanggoolba Creek. The Kingfisher Bay vehicle barge operates between River Heads / Hervey Bay and Kingfisher Bay Resort daily.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service permits are required for driving and camping on the island. Drivers should be aware of tide times and keep off the beach for two hours either side of high tide.
The Kingfisher Bay Ferry has three return services which depart River Heads (20 minutes south of Hervey Bay) daily and land at Kingfisher Bay Resort on the western side of Fraser Island. The resort grounds are accessible by two wheel drive vehicles, however The Great Sandy National Park and villages including Eurong Beach Resort are only accessible by four wheel drive vehicles.
Top Tip: When planning your journey, please allow extra time for roadworks.
