Once reaching Fraser Island, a tender will transfer you to the island where you'll have 2 hours to enjoy the western beaches of the world's largest sand island, with opportunities for both exploration or simple relaxation available - go for a swim, walk along the sand, go kayaking, play beach cricket, take a ride on our inflatable tube, have a bit of a snorkel or fun fish, or simply take it easy and soak in the QLD sunshine! 12:30pm - Once back on board the boat kick back and enjoy a freshly prepared Aussie style BBQ lunch including delicious Hervey Bay prawns, juicy steak and sausages, salads and fresh bread.
