Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Indian Head, Fraser Island, Queensland 4581 Australia
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.

Next a drive back to Pippies camp for lunch and then onto our next location.

Stop At: Eli Creek, 75 Mile Beach Road, Fraser Island, Queensland 4581 Australia

The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek and Pippies’ Fraser Island Tours 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.
