Whether you catch the barge from Inskip Point or Hervey Bay, that's when your 4WD adventure to Fraser Island begins. From Inskip Point, you will travel for 55kms along golden beaches or from Hervey Bay you will travel through ever-changing vegetation till you reach Happy Valley.
Happy Valley is very laid-back but with all the mod cons you need. The Retreat or shop has all the necessities you need should you forget anything. There is fuel, ice and grocery items. The Shop also has a licenced restaurant. Happy Valley is surrounded by sand dunes and a bush that is home to more than 200 species of bird and animal life, it is certainly paradise for all visitors.
With Happy Valley being so central on the island, your days will be filled with endless activities. From swimming in the refreshing waters of Eli Creek, or picnicing at Central Station and Lake McKenzie. Then of course there are days of just throwing a line in along the beaches to catch the night's dinner.
