Day 2 was the busiest out of the three, so I hope you have some energy saved up… The first stop we made was to the little sea aeroplanes where you are offered a scenic ride for $60. Although it’s only a short ride I really do think it’s worth doing while you’re there. Seeing Fraser from above was really special and you get to see a few places that can not be reached by foot (such as butterfly lake).
After this we headed to the ‘Champagne Pools’ known as Fraser Islands natural jacuzzi, although be prepared to be whacked around a bit!
After an hour in the Pools it’s a short drive to Indian Head which I can only describe as truly breathtaking. Indian Head is the most easterly point on the island and provides some stunning views of Fraser and the Coral Sea.
Once re-fuelled its then off to the Maheno shipwreck – it’s the most famous of the Fraser Island wrecks… this is really something you won’t want to miss. Once a few photos had been taken and we explored the wreck the last destination for the day – Eli Creek.
Eli Creek is the largest creek on the eastern beach of Fraser Island and is a popular swimming spot. Swimming or floating down the flowing creek is a super fun experience – just beware its FREEZING.
