75 Mile Beach

Seventy-Five Mile Beach, Fraser Island, QLD

The basics

Almost all Fraser Island tours visit 75 Mile Beach and many of the island’s most popular attractions are located on or around the beach. Starting from the south, drive north along the sandy tracks, stopping to admire the dunes of Hammerstone Sandblow, take a dip at Eli Creek, and see the Maheno Shipwreck marooned on the shore. At the north end of the island, the Champagne Pools are a scenic swimming spot, the colored cliffs of the Pinnacles make for some pretty photos, and Indian Head offers an impressive view along the beach and across the ocean.
