River Heads

This major departure point for vehicles to Fraser Island is located 15 minutes from Hervey Bay. It also offers spectacular views of Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait. This Strait is considered to be one of the safest waterways in Australia for boating.

There is a boat ramp and ample parking for vehicles and trailers. Vehicle permits for Fraser Island are available at the Barge Ticket Office. It is also a great spot for fishing.
