“Get out of the car - get down to the creek”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

At first I thought it was uninspiring, until I got onto the boardwalk leading beside the creek. Very nice and good for a leg stretch and eye exercise. One suggestion would be that plant recognition identification signage be erected.

Our first view of dingoes on the Island. Almost trod on a carpet snake sunning itself on the track on the way back up to the car. The whole island is a pretty special place (not as good and varied as Bruny Island, Tasmania though (Biased Reporter here !!!)

“Interesting”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The guide that drove us around Fraser Island had a particularly good botanic knowledge, so that he could explain us much about the ferns and the other plant species at the Station. Quite interesting!

“Rainforest”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The rainforest is well worth a visit. There are many trails here all marked. They are different distances so you can suit yourself as to which one you take. There is a lovely boardwalk all around the creek. Dont forget your camera!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The Satinay trees are awesome. We saw one whose age is calculated to be in excess of 1000 years.
A marvellous experience.
