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.

NotesWeano Gorge leads to the ultimate rock pool at Handrail Pool (the handrail is a welcome addition in clambering down to the pool). It's possible to wade on further along the 'Magic Mile', but the going is difficult and requires some basic climbing skills. Trainers and narrow feet are useful for negotiating the rock ledges further along the 'Mile'. Nearby, Hancock Gorge provides relatively easy access to another beautiful pool, Kermit's pool along polished slot canyons.

NotesAlthough a full traverse of the Western Arthurs is a difficult walk, it's relatively straighforward to reach the heart of the range along Morraine A. The mountains are wonderfully craggy with the path somehow managing to navigate through seemingly impossible slopes. The astronomically-named lakes amongst the peaks are serene and the views from peaks such as Mt Orion superb.
