Hiking on Fraser Island

Fraser Island, with its 1653 square kilometres encompassing 200-metre-high sand dunes, 80 beautiful lakes and pockets of rainforest, is a delight for those prepared to put on a pack. Hikers can camp beside some of the lakes in areas where car campers are not allowed. There are many overnight or short options, but the ultimate hike on Fraser is the classic 90-kilometre, six-to-eight-day Fraser Island Great Walk from Happy Valley, which takes in many of the major natural attractions such as the Valley of the Giants, Lake McKenzie, Central Station, Lake Birrabeen and Lake Boomanjin, finishing at Dilli Village on Seventy Five Mile Beach. If it sounds like the spot for you, but you want the bulk of your camping gear and food carried for you, join a four- or five-day guided and supported walking tour with Footprints on Fraser. The entire island is protected within Great Sandy National Park.
