Discover the world’s largest sand island in our own 4WD, tackling inland bumps and humps through towering Satinay trees, abundant forest and picturesque sand dunes. Shipwrecks and sheltered bays flash by your window but we make sure we stop so you can enjoy the view. To complement our perfect day, join us at the Jetty Hut for sunset drinks and watch the last of the sun’s rays set over the mainland. **Please note: Tour is not suitable for passengers with neck/back injury as some parts of the journey can be bumpy and jerky.

DAY 4. 26 Dec – Fraser Island Touring (B,L,D)

This morning join an island ranger for the Butchulla Walking Tour. On Fraser, the bush provided food and medicine for both the Butchulla and early European settlers. Learn how to identify this rich source of Australian food; find out how it can be used in everyday life; and, taste the flavours of the bush. Following our walking tour, it’s time to relax before regathering on the Maheno Deck to enjoy a leisurely lunch overlooking the resort lagoon pool. This afternoon we are privileged to have resort ranger and chef join us for an exclusive Bush Tucker Talk and Taste. Tantalise your taste buds with a selection of unique bush cuisine and find out how these foods can be used to enhance most dishes. Ranger presents a selection of foods in their natural and raw state and explains where you can find these foods. Chef will then show us how to use them, share some recipe secrets and present the cooked dishes for us to taste. When the day’s exploring is done, it’s time to take the taste-buds on a voyage of their own, join us for dinner in the award winning Seabelle Restaurant where we dine in style to celebrate our final night together.
