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.
