Lake Mckenzie is the definition of stunning! It is probs THE most picturesque spot on the island – with it’s crystal clear water and diamond white sand, it’s like something you’d see on a postcard!!
Oh, and the sand is so fine you can use it to exfoliate your skin or even brush your teeth!!
This lake may look weird and green, but Lake Wabby is actually pretty beaut.
Surrounded by rolling dunes and full of a load of aquatic life including catfish and rainbow fish, the lake is defo a very unique spot on the island.
Watch out for the little fish that nibble your feet (like that weird spa treatment).
Eli Creek aka Fraser Islands natural lazy river!
This place is sick – hop on an inflatable and travel down the creek to the beach…how cool!
Another awesome spot on the island! Back in the 1900’s, the ship found itself in the middle of a seasonal cyclone just off the coastline and then washed up on the shores of 75 Mile Beach.
The ship can still be seen today as it slowly sinks away in to the sand.
This place is called ‘Champagne Pools’ because the water in the naturally formed rocky pools bubbles like a jacuzzi.
So sit back and relax as the waves pour in to the pools from the ocean.
If you’re lucky, you may get to spot one of these wild dogs during your time on the island.
Dingoes are one of the top 10 Australian must-see animals.
Don’t worry though, campsites and accommodation areas are all equipt with dingo safe fencing.
The whole experience of living on an island for a few days is just insane!
At RatPack, we recommend hopping on a tour that has camping, so that you can camp under the stars and admire the views of the worlds biggest sand island.
Not that you need much encouragement to visit this beaut spot, but I hope this list of the must-see spots has given you a little taste of what you could be getting up to on this insane island. Just remember to make the most of every moment, take in all the sights and most importantly, enjoy yourself RatPack Style. Yewwwwwwwwwwwwww Holly (RPT Blog Writer) - Stay Tuned for my next piece…
