A hike through the Valley of the Giants on Fraser Island Great Walk is a must-do Aussie Bucket List experience for the avid adventurer. The Valley of the Giants is on the Fraser Island Great Walk and you can camp in this lush tropical rainforest in the central dunes. After a day on the Fraser Island Great Walk, you’ll enjoy the chance to relax and take in the beauty of this place.

If you can, plan an extra night here so you can explore the hidden 1000-year-old treasures of this rainforest. A 12.4km return side trail takes you deep into the heart of this amazing forest where you’ll see massive tallowwood and satinay trees.

The Valley of the Giants is 16.2km north of Lake Wabby walkers’ camp, 13.1km south of Lake Garawongera walkers’ camp and 7.8km from a minor Fraser Island Great Walk access track at the southern section of the Winnam camping area in Beach camping zone 3.

The Fraser Island Great Walk is generally open from 1 March to 31 October each year. At other times, fire danger may be too great to allow walkers through.
