Getting there

Take the ferry to Fraser Island and head to Kingfisher Bay Resort.


"Self-Guided Walks" from Kingfisher Bay Resort reception. 

Route/Trail notes

From the General Store, follow the bitumen road up the hill. Turn right. Turn left after a short distance, and follow the bitumen road with the villas on your right. Turn left up a sand track towards a picnic table. Continue to the top of the hill to the dingo fence. Go through the gate. Follow the trail for the Southern Lookout. From there, the path is very well marked with sign posts.  

Unless it is high-tide, it's quite easy and quicker to return along the beach back to the resort. Simply walk from the Commando School to McKenzies Jetty (700 metres). Head north back up the beach.
