From Hervey Bay: Fraser Island Beach and Aussie BBQ Cruise

1. From Hervey Bay: Fraser Island Beach and Aussie BBQ Cruise

This 5 hour tour departs from your Hervey Bay accommodation. You will depart the marina, and travel to Fraser Island, across beautiful blue, clear water. Look out for Australian wildlife including dolphins, turtles and whales on the way. A sumptuous morning tea will be served on the journey over. You will then arrive at Fraser Island's western beach and/or Pelican Banks, depending on the season and weather. Beaches on the western side of Fraser Island are far more remote and untouched. Pelican Bank is a sandbank on the Great Sandy Strait which is utter perfection due to the clear water. Swim, kayak, fish, walk, play and explore this beautiful location. An Aussie BBQ lunch will be provided as you cruise back from Fraser Island. This includes locally-sourced ingredients such as quality rib fillet steaks, gourmet sausages, fresh Hervey Bay prawns, 3 delicious and nutritious salads, and bread. Cold drinks will be available for purchase at the licensed affordable bar.

What people are saying about Hervey Bay

Overall an excellent day. The young man on the beach was particularly helpful and patient with clients. One prawn does not equate to the advertised “Harvey Bay king prawns”. Of particular concern was listening on two occasions to the senior female staff member berating staff in front of guests! This should just never happen, and may be a sign that she has been in the position too long. Once again an excellent day, but could have been perfect so easily.

One of the best activities I've had the pleasure of doing! The variety of activities to take part in on the beach was excellent, the crew were friendly and the food and service was amazing! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

The crew members were really nice and professional, we had a lot of fun and felt super safe during the tour. Highly recommended.

Outstanding experience, great value for money. Family really enjoyed the day! Highlight of our holiday.

Great few hours out on the water kids and myself really enjoyed swimming in the boom net
