Barges and ferry services run daily from River Heads, south of Hervey Bay to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
From River Heads the Fraser Venture runs three services daily to Wanggoolba Creek* and the Kingfisher Bay Ferry runs three services to Kingfisher Bay Resort.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service permits are required for driving and camping on the island. Drivers should be aware of tide times and keep off the beach for two hours either side of high tide. Driving conditions vary with weather and tides. Speed limits are 35km per hour on inland roads and 80km per hour on the Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Normal road rules apply. Carry essential spares as well as a towrope, spade, water and first aid kit.
On the beach, drive around the low-tide times. Indicate when overtaking, turning or passing and pass on the left. Slow down for pedestrians, wildlife, vehicles and aircraft and beware of humps and creek washouts on the beach.
Inland stay on formed tracks. Most tracks are narrow and two-way so keep a look out for passing bays. Give way to buses and downhill traffic. Check our our Facebook page (under Events) for all the latest news and pics.
*Note Barge Services to/from Wanggoolba Creek are subject to change during cases of extreme low tides.
