How to spend a day on Fraser Island

Stretching over 123 kilometres, Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. With 184,000 hectares of pristine adventure playground at your fingertips, here are our top tips on where to eat, sleep and play.


Open daily with delicious pastries, sausage rolls, pies and more, Eurong Bakery is said to bake the best bread for 75 miles – the perfect spot for breaky!

As for restaurants, there’s McKenzie’s, a large, casual eatery that’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving both buffet and a la carte offerings. Our menu pick? Any of the seafood! It’s all the freshest of the fresh and mouth-watering.

Seabelle Restaurant is the essence of world-class dining, bringing the best local produce to the plate and again, the seafood is absolutely out of this world.


Eurong Beach Resort offers accommodation for all budgets. Its beachfront position makes for easy access to the island’s famous Seventy-Five Mile Beach, and there’s plenty to do with a choice of two swimming pools, beach bar, tennis courts and lots more.

Kingfisher Bay Resort also has a myriad of options when it comes to accommodation, making it easy to relax and slip into island time. Whether you’re escaping for a romantic getaway or taking the family for an adventure-filled holiday, there’s a room, villa or lodge to suit.


Lake McKenzie and Birrabeen are both ‘perched’ lakes, filled only with rainwater and pure white silica sand. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better swimming spot.

Seventy-Five Mile Beach is said to offer some of the best beach fishing in the world. Off shore there’s plenty of action, as northern coral and southern reef species thrive.

You simply cannot visit the world’s largest sand island and not partake in a little 4WDing! Seventy-Five Mile Beach is a great run and there are countless sand tracks around the island linking each pristine spot to the next. (Vehicle permits are required).

Whale watching
What better spot to whale watch than the whale watch capital of the world? More than 1,500 humpbacks visit Hervey Bay on their way south between the months of August and October – and they can stay in the protected waters of Fraser for up to two weeks!
