75 Mile Beach
From the ferry drop-off on Fraser Island you’ll follow the designated sand pathways through the rainforest before emerging onto Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Be advised swimming is not recommended as the water is filled with tiger sharks, although you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of these marine creatures along with dolphins, turtles and fish from Indian Head. Make sure to keep an eye on the tide, as when it comes up there isn’t enough beach to drive on and you’ll need to wait until it’s low again to leave. Also, keep an eye out for wild dingoes, which can be unpredictable and aggressive, especially when searching for food. Keep any food you’ve brought sealed tight and out of the open.
