3 day / 2 night K’gari Fraser Island Swim Tour

This itinerary provides you with the opportunity to swim Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and afternoon, and Sunday morning, with time in between spent exploring the island via 4WD, driving through the towering rainforests, spotting dingoes, and of course, cruising along the endless sandy beaches.

K’Gari has many beautiful lakes that we utilise as swim locations, including Boorangoora: Birrabeen; Wabby: Boomanjin.

To ensure the best possible experience, the weekend will be planned around the predicted wind and weather. The tour staff work closely with the Beach Resort’s activities staff to plan the weekend ahead.

You can create your own weekend by opting in or out of the various planned swims. Or you will also have the option to complete only part of or all of a particular swim, i.e., most swims have an early exit option. Each swim will range between 2 – 3 km and normally scheduled for an hour in duration.

Our accommodation, Eco Retreat on K'Gari, also offers a warm and friendly place to relax and put your feet up, after a day of exploring and swimming.

Your tour will include the following:

  • Option of four guided swims over three days
  • Ongoing coaching and swimming tips
  • Lake swims
  • Opportunity to be in the driver’s seat and guided on how to navigate the 4WD tracks like a pro
  • Afternoon drinks and nibbles on Friday and Saturday
  • Evening camp-fire and star gazing

Each swim is planned to last between 60 – 75 minutes. During the swims we will stop regularly to regroup and provide direction. Each swim will cover somewhere between 2.2 – 3.5 km. Each swim is designed with an early exit option.

We work around two swims per day, apart from the first and final days of the trip, when only one swim is usually scheduled.

No, not at all. This is your holiday, swim as much or as little as you wish. We will encourage you to join us on each swim.

Most of our accommodation is based on two people sharing and for most parts we have Double or Twin Share rooms available.

In between swims you will find time to read a book, play cards or socialise with others on the trip.

You can choose to wear flippers for some or all of the swims. We are not here to race but rather enjoy the beautiful environment.

The wetsuit option is worth considering; not only do they keep you warmer, but they also provide you with a bit more flotation, protection from the sun and any marine stingers that we might encounter.

The beautiful part of swimming in the open water is encountering the wildlife that inhabit these waterways; swimming with the tiny freshwater turtles on K’Gari, having the privilege of swimming beside the majestic Manta-Rays, or simply listening to the humpbacks underwater song as they cruise past at Lady Elliot Island.

We work on a water safety ratio of 1:6 and complete a thorough risk assessment prior to each swim. Our staff are fully qualified as swim coaches and lifeguards, but are also accomplished open water swimmers.
