OVERVIEW

The Aboriginals call this Island K’gari (meaning paradise) because there’s something undoubtedly special about Fraser Island. Its bountiful forests, picture-perfect beaches, azure seas and freshwater lakes have all earned it World Heritage-listed status. The Fraser Island Great Walk is undoubtedly the best way to experience all of this.

Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island. It consists purely of sand and yet it supports large stands of lush tropical rainforest.  Some of the massive trees are more than 6 metres wide and over 1000 years old. The sands also support more than forty crystal-clear freshwater lakes. Our favourite, Lake McKenzie, is rightfully known as the jewel of Fraser Island. Don’t forget to pack the swimming gear.

Your journey on foot on the Fraser Island Great Walk encompasses an amazing variety of landscapes. Much of the walking is remote, enabling you to immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of this unblemished natural environment entirely away from the busy tourist routes. The island also abounds with wildlife, whales, wallabies, dolphins and dugongs frolic and roam freely and a bird lover’s paradise. with over 240 species recorded in the area.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WALK IS AVAILABLE AS A 7 OR AN 8 DAY TRIP

    This walk was a real adventure, and absolutely loved it. Due to bush fires and Covid, the track was overgrown but that just made it more of a challenge. The weather was perfect, and you were almost always under canopy so very sheltered from the sun. We were on our own a lot so it felt like we had the island to ourselves….it was so peaceful and relaxing. We were super impressed with the walking guides and they were easy to follow, and never in doubt we were going the wrong way. Lastly, the drop offs and pick offs were very personal and we could change the times to suit us – this was fantastic and made the trip even more enjoyable

    Definitely a “great” walk: varied geography but mainly for those interested in flora and exploring the dynamic effects of moving sand. Glimpses of interesting social history such as the timber industry and the effects of tourism. The walking was easier than I expected. Although the walk was entirely on sand there was very little soft sand. Definitely no Tasmanian bogs! No steep ascents or descents. Estimated walking times in the notes were realistic. Logistics all worked well.

    Fraser Island – The Best Way To Go
    My husband and I walked the Fraser Island 8 day self guided walk. We were mostly walking on our own, only meeting a few walkers 2 separate days. We felt like we had the island to ourselves and found it very relaxing in a strange way.

    The guide books were so good, easy to follow and almost fool proof! We didn’t need the map and was a great feeling knowing we were always on the right track (some of which were not that clear!)

    We found the flexibility and hospitality given to us, especially by Greg and Lee at the Eurong, was amazing. We were able to adapt to suit our walking times and start and finish at times of our choosing.

    Although it was meant to be Winter, the weather was amazing. The walk was mostly under canopy so no sunburn. The lakes were so beautiful and having our own secluded area on Lake McKenzie was the best…

    We managed to see a dingo at Eurong when we were down on the beach watching the sunrise.

    This was a very special holiday and I would definitely recommend Aus Walk – they did a great job.

    I walked the Fraser Island 8 day self guided hike with my 10 year old son. We were mostly walking on our own, which was very peaceful. We did not get to see a dingo, but saw lots of evidence of dingoes on the paths.
    We were able to shorten the 2 longest days from 21 km to 15 km , to suit my son. The flexibility and hospitality extended to us, particularly by Greg and Lee at the Eurong Beach Resort, was tremendous.
    I particularly enjoyed the last dinner at the fine dining restaurant at Kingfisher Bay resort. I also enjoyed the magnificent ecosystems on Fraser. So much natural beauty – it was really special.
    We will definitely be back there. I would definitely recommend Aus Walk – they did a great job.

    This is an amazingly beautiful walk through spectacular forests. It is very peaceful with few other walkers. We have done many multi-day walks and Auswalks are easily the best company with regard to efficiency and also flexibility. We like their self-guided walks and the track notes they supply are superb. They take care of all the arrangements (accommodation, meals; transportation of luggage) and one can just enjoy the walking. This was our second self-guided walk with Auswalks and we are planning the next one.

    Fraser Island is very beautiful and diverse and great to walk!
    There were many highlights, rainforests,swimming in the gorgeous pure clear water of Lake Mckenzie and walking along the beach.
    Auswalk provide all meals so you just need a day pack with water, insect repellant, and make sure your hiking shoes are well worn in! A walking stick is a good idea!
    Both resorts were good and the staff very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us.

    Fraser Island is very beautiful and diverse and great to walk!
    There were many highlights, rainforests,swimming in the gorgeous pure clear water of Lake Mckenzie and walking along the beach.
    Auswalk provide all meals so you just need a day pack with water, insect repellant, and make sure your hiking shoes are well worn in! A walking stick is a good idea!
    Both resorts were good and the staff very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us.
