Fraser Island & O'Reilly's

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,297

Experience two wonders in one by combining Fraser Island and O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. Explore the incredible landscapes and wildlife available in both of these stunning locations.


From the bush to the beach, combine two of Queensland’s most idyllic retreats on this 5 day getaway.

O’Reilly’s Rainforest Guesthouse puts you in the heart of Queensland’s beautiful wilderness, only an hour from Brisbane. Experience the breathtaking Tree Top Walk, and take O’Reilly’s famous birdwalk, which brings hundreds of birds to the guesthouse each morning. Immerse yourself in nature on a rainforest hike to some of the region’s spectacular lookouts. Then watch the forest come alive at night on a nocturnal walk.

A ride on the Tilt Train takes you to Fraser Island, known to the local Aboriginal people as K’gari, meaning paradise. And that it is, particularly for those who love a destination rich with wildlife, natural beauty and endless activities – or the opportunity to relax on the beach, doing just as little as possible. A full day 4WD coach tour will take you to see many of the island’s shipwrecks, lush forest areas and famous coloured sands.
