Fraser Island’s diversity means that walkers go through a variety of vegetation. Tracks are generally gentle gradients, but are quite steep in some sections, Grade 3 & 4 tracks. These are bush tacks, expect normal leaf litter, etc. and unevenness of the surface. Walkers require a good level of fitness, balance and be steady on their feet. We recommend that walkers do some preparation by taking long day walks, in their local area, in and around natural spaces carrying a small day pack.
