The Best of Fraser Island’s Great Walk is a deluxe walking package, not offered elsewhere on Fraser Island.
We believe that the only way to truly enjoy the amazing natural environment that Fraser Island has to offer is by walking or hiking. By walking it allows the hiker to see the small natural wonders at a deeper level, for those that are keen to see the side of Fraser Island that are missed when travelling by 4wd or on a bus tour. Slowing down and walking the bush tracks allows one to experience the microcosm of this unique landscape; the ever-changing vegetation, the small native flora and fauna. We offer this truly unique luxury walking experience to allow our customers to walk immersed in total tranquillity!
Our team is knowledgeable and professional with years of experience in walking, eco-tourism, luxury accommodation and the environment of Fraser Island.
The team is also committed to preserving the environment and reducing our ecological footprint and the impact on the environment, in both the office and on Fraser Island. We proudly hold an Eco Certification from Eco Tourism Australia, one of our first priorities when setting up this experience. We review and update our policies, to be on top of the latest sustainable practices. It's not just a certificate for us it's a way of life! Creating a sustainable walking experience, while minimising the impact on the Island environment and its precious ecosystems is our high priority.
From the start the Fraser Island Great Walk company had everything completely organised. My car was locked away in their secure parking area, we met up with the other lucky hikers, and the guides. The 4WD was loaded up and off to the barge for the trip to Fraser Island.
We unpacked at Waiuta Retreat, the comfortable house we called home for our tour, and we’re out for our first hike.
The next few days had us escorted to various amazing hiking trails all over the island, away from the crowds, and with Nigel the guide and super-chef preparing superb lunches, we were able to take in the best of Fraser Island’s natural wonders.
The breakfasts at the house were huge and tasty, and really set us up for a day’s hiking and exploring, and the evening meals had us oohing and aahing at their creativity. And tasty beers and wines too!
Jane and Ash are perfect hosts/guides and Nigel is an amazing chef and guide, we all had a ball exploring the beauty of Fraser Island, and I’d take one of their hiking adventures again in a heartbeat.
