Fraser Island Tours from Hervey Bay

Fraser Island Tours from Hervey Bay

The coastal town of Hervey Bay is close enough to the UNESCO-listed Fraser Island that you can visit the island as a day trip—though if you’re looking for a more relaxed experience, choose to spend an overnight or a longer stretch here. Here’s what you need to know about Fraser Island tours from Hervey Bay.

Highlights

  • Look for whales (June to September) and dolphins in the waters of Hervey Bay, situated between the Queensland mainland and Fraser Island.

  • Fly across Hervey Bay and the majestic Great Sandy Strait to enjoy a bird’s-eye views of the lakes and rain forests of Fraser Island. 

  • Speed over to the island by Jet Ski, visiting sheltered bays and coves that can’t be accessed by larger watercraft.

  • Swim in freshwater lakes, kayak off the coast, hike along trails, and enjoy 4WD drives along gleaming white sands of Seventy-Five Mile Beach. 

  • See the Pinnacles, colorful sand cliffs; the SS Maheno shipwreck, which was washed ashore in 1935; and visit Central Station, the former center of the now-defunct logging industry on the island. 

Things to Know

  • Ferries depart from River Heads, just outside Hervey Bay, and take 50 minutes.

  • Some private boat tours around the island set off from other marinas, including Urangan, a suburb of Hervey Bay. 

  • Multi-day tours include accommodation, either at campsites on the island or at beach resorts, either in shared or private rooms.

  • With Jet Ski tours to Fraser Island beginning at just 1.5 hours, and boat cruises lasting as little as half a day, Hervey Bay offers some great tour options for travelers who are tight on time. 

  • Many tours include pickup and drop-off from Hervey Bay hotels.
