Fraser Island is one of the biggest bucket list items on the East Coast of Australia and there’s no better way to see it than a 4WD tag along tour.
This trip with the team from Nomads spans 3 days and 2 nights – where you’ll soak up all the amazing experiences that the largest sand island in the world has to offer.
From the crystal clear waters of Lake Mackenzie and the refreshing Champagne Pools to the magnificent sand dunes of Lake Wobby and the views from Indian Head Lookout – this trip packs in a lot.
At night you can kick back and relax in the Eurong Resort staying at the Nomads legendary Tipi Accommodation, for a bit of flashpacker camping luxury where you enjoy a few drinks at the bar with your new travel buddies.
This trip is the exact same as the Nomads Fraser Island Hostel Style trip – so if you’re travelling with some buddies who prefer dorms you can now travel together without compromising!
But best of all you get to cruise along the beach in a 4×4 – which is an epic experience in itself!
…and don’t forget to keep a watchful eye out for the local dingos!
