Fraser Island

Distance Travelled: 220 NM
Steaming Time: 19 Hours

Our next stop is Fraser Island, which is over 123km in length and at 184,000 hectares, it is the largest sand island in the world. Fraser Island's World Heritage listing ranks it with Australia's Uluru, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef as a precious part of Australia's natural and cultural heritage. Our visit will involve us anchoring up at the southern end of the island at Inskip Point, where we will be joined by local indigenous guides and will deploy the Xplorer tenders for a natural culture expedition along the western side of the Island and through the marine reserve of the Great Sandy Strait.

The Coral Adventurer will make a voyage south through the great Sandy Straits from Hervey Bay towards an anchorage at Kingfisher Bay. Guests will enjoy a full day of guided tours of the Island to visit the historic Maheno Shipwreck, the rainforest walks and history of Central Station and enjoy relaxing swim in the crystal fresh waters of Lake McKenzie.

Traditional custodians: The Butchulla people are the Traditional Owners of K'gari (Fraser Island).

Our Story

Australia’s Pioneering Cruise Line
For over 30 years Coral Expeditions has had one purpose – taking small groups of like-minded explorers to the most remote parts of the world, with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality. Coral Expeditions was founded by a fisherman with a passion for the sea. Then named Coral Princess Cruises, the small North Queensland based company explored the Great Barrier Reef and pioneered small ship expedition cruising to the Kimberley and Papua New Guinea. Today, Coral Expeditions has grown to include voyages to Tasmania, Islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, and the Indonesian Archipelago. Our Australian crew provide warm hospitality and personal service on board. Shore-rich itineraries in remote locations allow our guests to be immersed in local cultures, get close to wildlife, and enjoy adventurous land and sea activities in safety. We invite you to celebrate 35 years of exploration with us.
