75 Mile Beach, Fraser Island, 120km
It's not hard to guess how this location got its name. Someone measured the beach and realised it was 75 miles long, which is 120km along the east coast of Fraser Island. It's the perfect stretch of sand to enjoy beach driving and stunning, unspoiled natural attractions.
The eastern beach from Hook Point to Sandy Cape is the main highway for the island and drivable only on the hard sand below the high-tide line. approx. 2 hours. Because everything is dependent on the tides we recommend that you don't play tourist on this first trip up the Island.
