Pack-free Camping: Blue Lakes Eco Hike - 3 Days
EXPERIENCE HIKING DIFFERENTLY!
This pack-free camping hike experience is a self-guided hiking experience with a twist of comfort! It lets you enjoy the thrills of camping and hiking, with a bit of pampering! These hikes include a 4WD transfer to the trailhead and a 4wd pick up at the end locations of the hike. They also ensure hikers only carry a small day pack whilst hiking. The support crew will drop off all equipment (other belongings, tent, food, etc.) and set up your camp ahead of you, making for a relaxing, easy hiking experience. Glamping hikes are a great way to enjoy the pristine beauty of Fraser Island without having to carry a heavy pack all day!

In the morning hikers are able to leave their overnight bags with clothing etc. with the Fraser Dingo transfer vehicle to be dropped at their camp later in the day. This lets hikers carry day packs with necessities, such as water, snacks and rain jackets. Begin the 6.3km hike through spectacular forest to Lake Boomanjin.
