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).

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)
