K'gari Explorer Day Tour

Departs daily from Hervey Bay (via River Heads) and from Rainbow Beach (via Inskip Point)

Discover the world's largest sand island on a one-day 4WD adventure. Led by an experienced local guide, you’ll see K'gari's iconic sights on a curated itinerary of highlights such as Lake McKenzie, World Heritage-listed rainforest, 75 Mile Beach, Eli Creek and the historic Maheno Shipwreck.

What You'll See:

Central Station - A former logging station that housed schools and shops for the bustling timber industry is now a tourist stop. Stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient King Ferns, towering Flooded Gums and Pine trees.

Lake McKenzie (Boorangoora) - K'gari's most iconic, picture-perfect swimming spot! Immerse yourself in the crystal-clear blue fresh water and relax on the sandy white beaches.

75 Mile Beach - As you travel along this golden beach highway, you may spot dingoes, birds of prey flying above, or humpback whales, migrating down the coast (between July – October).

Eli Creek - Float gently down this tranquil, tree-lined creek with four million litres of fresh water flowing into the Pacific Ocean every hour.

Maheno Shipwreck - Marvel at the rustic wreck of the Maheno, which washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935. It’s one of K’gari’s most recognisable sites.

The Pinnacles Coloured Sands - Learn about these radiant, cliff-like sand formations and the Indigenous Dreamtime stories that surround them. Get up-close and experience the spectacular 72 shades of rare red, orange and yellow sands.

PLUS - Take your adventure to new heights, with an optional scenic flight with Air Fraser, and witness the world’s largest sand island from above. It’s the perfect add-on to your tour! Subject to weather and availability. (Additional cost applies)
