The drive along 75 mile beach is like a highway and has posted speed limits of up to 80 km/hour. It is also commonly used as an airstrip for the local tourist planes, so watch for the cones. The drive along here incorporates many of...More

I felt we were speeding - but everyone else was too - there were dead birds on the sand, looked as though they'd been run over. Camping area was littered with garbage.

Driving along the registered highway of sand on eastern Fraser Island is just one of those must do things. How lucky we are to have it in our backyard! Magnificent - except for occasional hoons. Be careful not to hit the water outlets at speed...More

We motor-coached over to the beach from the Kingfisher Bay Resort. Once you’ve driven ten minutes out of the Kingfisher in route to the eastern beaches an hour away, you’ve seen most of what the island has to offer, visually. There were no scenic views....More

The beach is an amazing length and so very clean. The ocean is quite beautiful and inviting here, but the number of sharks, the undertows and the currents make it inadvisable to swim in it. The wildlife we saw , dingos and sea eagles ,...More

This is the main route to anywhere on the island, passable in both high and low tide, although low tide is a lot easier. Remember your road rules and obey the speed limits, if you are not careful you will come unstuck. If your lucky...More

To think you are driving on a gazette highway but on sand with the ocean right beside you is out of this world.

There are many walks on the island and a must is a picturesque walk along a deserted beach followed by a trek through the rainforest. Beautiful!

To experience Seventy-Five Mile Beach you definitely require a 4WD. You need to time the tides to get the most out of your adventure and to avoid driving in soft sand. I've driven this beach many times and still get blown away by the scenery....More

We joined 75-mile beach at Eurong Beach Resort up to the coloured sands of The Pinnacles and back, so not the full distance. As it is regarded as a highway, the vehicles have to keep to the right, avoiding the numerous fishermen. We were on...More

Whilst the area is a public highway nothing could prepare me for the number of 4WD,s that were there whilst most people were there for fishing others camping it is a very popular area. Plenty to see and do .
