Day 1 : Lake McKenzie, Central Station and Corrigin Sandblow
Leave Pippies Beachhouse 7am sharp Drive in awe up the first portion of 75 mile beach to Eurong where we head inland towards Lake McKenzie Arrive at Lake McKenzie and take a dip in these incredibly pure, clear waters. Words do not do this amazing lake any justice. Drive to Central Station where we eat lunch, walk along the waters of the very special Wanggoolba Creek and learn Fraser Island’s history in a time before this beautiful island was protected. We then leave for a drive back to 75-mile beach and onto Pippies camp. Arrive at our incredible campsite and chill after a long day or head up to Corrigin Sandblow for an amazing sunset where Pippies are the only tour group to have access. Dinner time! Cook a BBQ together with your new Fraser Family and spend the night socialising together next to a campfire or under the covered seating area.

Day 2 : Champagne Pools, Indian Head, Eli Creek Pinnacles and Maheno Shipwreck
Wake up early (hangovers are no excuse!) to a simple, easy breakfast of toast and cereal before getting back in the cars to head further north. Arrive at the Champagne Pools to cleanse under awesome waves crashing over into the natural rock pools, creating the bubbly “champagne.” Then back to the cars again for a short drive to our next destination Climb the stunning Indian Head (one of the few rocks formations on the island) to spot the amazing marine wildlife that can be seen off of Fraser Island, if luck is on our side, we can normally spot: Humpback Whales (August – October), Sharks, Sea Turtles, Dolphins, huge Rays and many schools of tropical fish. Next a drive back to Pippies camp for lunch and then onto our next location. A short drive down the beach is the largest creek on the Eastern Beach; Eli Creek. Take a walk up the boardwalk with a rubber ring and float down these serene waters which pumps up to 4 million litres of fresh water into the sea every hour. The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek and Pippies camp; the Maheno shipwreck. As the sun lowers in the sky watch the rusty wreck against the sea sky and incredible coloured sands seen up the coast. Finally, a short stop at The Pinnacles on the way back to Pippies camp. Seen from the beach this sand formation is a prime example of the coloured sands seen all up the Fraser Coast. Arriving back at Pippies camp to take a breather after an amazing day, wash away the sand in the amazing amenities block just a short walk from our campsite…… then more food! As part of our Fraser Family we cook spaghetti bolognaise together with garlic bread followed by another night of socialising under some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most spectacular stars.
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 : Lake Wabby

Here we will walk for around 40-45 mins down a beautiful sand track through the bush and out onto the Hammerstone Sandblow. Located a short walk along the sand blow Lake Wabby is the deepest lake on Fraser Island so be sure to take a dip and chill next on its shores. After our lunch on the beach, it is time to make our way back to the barge and Rainbow Beach but not before hunting for the mysterious Eugarie and learning the meaning of our name: Pippies!
