Hi all,

I'm planning a trip to Fraser in Sept/Oct 2016, leaving from Melbourne. Just after any suggestions on any must see places to or from Fraser from Melbourne. I have a very capable 4wd that is setup up for remote touring.

Thanks

Phil, which way do you plan to go to get to Fraser? Will make a difference to how people reply and also how long have you got to get to Fraser? Cheers.

Phil, for the limited time you have, two/three days Melbourne to Hervey Bay/Rainbow Beach, then the rest of the time on Fraser........... two/three days home. Have a great trip.

Hi PHIL

A couple of days between Noosa (Tewantin)and Rainbow is worth a look, I preferred this area than Fraser, it's a lot quieter
Happy Travels

This is what I have come up with so far, any comments or suggestions? This will be a "boys" trip, which has become an annual event where we (3 4wd's) take a few friends that don't normally camp or have 4wd's out to see a few different parts of Australia.

Melbourne to Mittagong (Wombeyan Caves)
Yerranderie, Jenolan Caves
Blue Mountains
Blue Mountains
Byron Bay
Byron Bay
Tewanton
Rainbow Beach
Rainbow Beach
Fraser Island
Fraser Island

Fraser Island
Harvey Bay
Parkes - Radio Telescope ('The Dish")

Thanks

Personally I'd use the time you've set aside at Rainbow Beach and use it to explore Fraser Island better. Rainbow consists of a small township and beach just the same as you'll experience on Fraser Island...a nice enough place, but the 2 days will be better spent on Fraser IMHO
