RouteWanggoolba Creek - Basin Lake - Central Station - Lake Benaroon - Lake Boomanjin (N1) - Dili Village - Eurong - Lake Wabby (N2) - Lake McKenzie - Basin Lake - Wanggoolba Creek
NotesThis is a fantastic way to explore Fraser Island, visiting the major highlights of Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby and the rainforest around Central Station, as well as some of the less well-known southern lakes. Transport to the start of the main circuit is limited, but it's a relatively short walk along the vehicle tracks from Wanggoolba Creek via a short-cut path to Basin Lake, on the main circuit. Three full days provide plenty of time for swimming in the beautiful lakes.

NotesAlthough not an immediately obvious place to cycle, with the correct tide, most of the circumference of Moreton Island has sand firm enough to cycle along. It's also possible to carry bicycles and camping gear across the Little Sandhills. Worthwhile walking side trips include Cape Moreton, Mirapool Lagoon and a circuit from the Blue Lagoon camping area to the beach and then along the vehicle track to Honeyeater Lake. This circuit can be completed with a thigh-high wade around the edge of the Blue Lagoon.

RouteRainbow Bay - Carlo Sandblow - Murrawar lookout - Bymien picnic area - Poona Lake - Freshwater Lake (N1) - Teewah Beach - Double Island Point - Rainbow Beach
NotesAn easy two day circuit leading through scenery very similar to the more popular walking routes on Fraser Island. The rainforest near Bymien and Poona Lake are both highlights. It's possible to walk around Poona Lake in around 30 minutes. A shortcut track (closed to vehicles) leads from near the lighthouse to right at the very end of Rainbow Beach. The section of Rainbow Beach to the NE of the Leisha track is strewn in a few sections with dead trees, meaning that some paddling may be necessary near high tide. Carlo Sandblow does not lead onto Rainbow Beach with a drop of around 70m over crumbling sandy and rocky slopes, so visit the sandblow on the way to Bymien, rather than from Rainbow Beach. A couple of hundred of metres of quite steep but open forest separate the upper corner of the sandblow and the Telegraph Track leading to Bymien.

RoutePark HQ - Castle Rock - Mt Norman - Stone Gate - West Bald Rock - South Bald Rock - Border track (N1) - Bald Rock (NSW) - Paling Yard Creek - Underground Creek - Dr Roberts Waterhole - Pyramids Road - Park HQ
NotesA circuit walk leading through some of Giraween's best scenery leading briefly across the state border to the adjoining Bald Rock NP. The route up South Bald Rock is easy to follow, mostly over bare rock. West Bald Rock routes looked more difficult to find. An alternative route to Bald Rock summit leads from this route directly up its SW flank, a shorter ascent than the normal approach along the eastern ridge. Apert from the spectacular bare granite mountains, the heathland clearings near Paling Yard Creek are also very scenic. Park authorities are unhelpful regarding the legality of camping outside designated campsites - it's possible to camp at many points along this route. The Giraween creeks normally have some water, although water will always be available at the Bald Rock picnic area.
