Driving from Hook Point to Kingfisher Bay ?

by rosscoo

Hi all,

i'm heading to Fraser for the first time.

I'm staying at Kingfisher Resort but would like to know it is possible to drive from Hook Point to Kingfisher Bay?

I know a barge goes straight from Hervey Bay to Kingfisher, but i'm interested in driving across the island to check out the sights if that is possible?

I'm just not sure if the beach is driveable all the way up to Eurong (for example) and then possible to cut across on an inland road to Kingfisher?

Any help (and suggested routes) would be very much appreciated!

Cheers.

The eastern beach is drivable (subject to tides) and there are several tracks across the island. I'd seek local knowledge on the day at Eurong or Central Station. I would hope that you are experienced at beach driving , have a 4x4 and you are aware a permit to drive (& camp) on the island is required. Happy trails de p.

some hire car companies will not allow you to drive to hook point.if you have your own car then yes you can do it but only at low tide, You must read the tide charts very carefully and be quite experienced at 4wd on sand. Drive relatively slow don't drive like an idiot and think of others (like the poor people like us who have to recover the numerous idiots who got bogged or rolled there cars over) not saying you will drive like this but please be aware there are people who have no idea at all out there who expect others to help them out of their own stupidity.

have fun FRASER IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC

Just confirming that you are aware that Fraser Island is 4WD only - "normal" vehicles are not permitted on the island.

Lyn is correct - there are any number of idiots driving without respect for other visitors to the island and accidents are many. Some are severe. See my Fraser island Intro page if you are interested: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/ae2c2/1ca112/

Travel Tips for Fraser Island

Lots to enjoy here...

by Sweetberry1

On Frazer Island, you can enjoy 5 star resort holidays, do a day tour, 2 or 3 day safaris, or camp for a few days. There is much to see, shipwreck, rainforest, wildlife, a beach that is also a highway and a runway for planes. You see so much in a day, beautiful lakes you can swim in, fresh water springs, and one of the best Chicken and Champagne or Beer Lunches I have had in a long time. This would be a great place to camp..

No other place quite like it...

by Sweetberry1

Fraser Island is the only place in the world where rainforests grow on sand - it is a unique natural environment and an abundance of wildlife inhabit the island and its surrounding waterways. There are freshwater lakes and sandy white beaches, dense rainforest and winding streams, forlorn shipwrecks and waif-like dingoes. The beautiful natural surroundings.

Be Prepared to protect yourself

by KevinMichael

Backpack - for carrying all your stuff
fannypack Hiking shoes
a good hat (like mine in the picture) to protect you from the sun (many people get skin
cancer on their ears or nose).
shorts (because it's hot)
extra change of clothing
sun glasses with good UV protection lots of sunscreen (Amazingly, we saw a lot of fried Australians and tourists)
toothpaste and toothbrush
bugspray (although we didn't seem to really need it) A good digital camera, lots of memory, and extra batteries beach towel

Lots of Hiking

by KevinMichael

There are plenty of chances for hiking. The bus tours give us the choice to do a little scenic hiking or not.

Where as skipping the hikes might be more comfortable, you'll miss out on seeing things up closer.

During our 3 days on the island, we hiked through a small desert, a tropical rain forest, up and around some lakes and to and around the area called Central Station. a good pair of hiking shoes/boots, water, sunscreen, towel, bathing suit (if you're hiking to a lake), backpack (for carrying everything), and camera.

Ferry Information

by Jmill42

Almost all persons and vehicles arrive to Fraser by ferry from Hervey Bay, in Queensland. There are numerous ferries each day, but check times with an agent or the park officials for the first and last times, so you don't end up stuck on the island. 4 PM is the normal last ferry time.

A few crazy people go to Fraser by plane, with a landing being performed on the sand at a beach along the eastern coast.
