How to participate in the Fraser Island Clean Up with Motorama 4x4xMORE

This event is a bit different than others as there are very limited spots, and visiting Fraser Island is on the bucket list for a lot of our members.

To participate in the Fraser Island Clean Up, we want you to write (in 100 words or less) why you want to join Motorama 4x4xMORE in exploring & cleaning up Fraser Island.

We'll pick the most original, honest, adventurous and captivating entries who will be joining us to this World Heritage Island.

As we expect this event to be very popular please make sure you only register if you can take the time off and make the payment before March 1, as we will need to confirm numbers around this date.

What's the Trip Plan?

There will be two options for participants to the Fraser Island Clean up with Motorama 4x4xMORE, to either go over to the island on Friday morning and stay 3 nights or to go over on Saturday morning and stay 2 nights. Either way you'll be escorted from Rainbow Beach to Eurong Resort by professional and experienced 4x4xMORE team leaders.

We'll be nominated a section of beach to clean up from approximately 8.00AM until 12PM on Sunday. Next to the clean up we'll head to Eli Creek for a swim, the Maheno Wreck, the Champagne Pools and Indian Head for some sight seeing during the weekend. On Sunday night we'll have an optional group dinner at McKenzie's on 75, you can view their menu here.

On Monday, the day is yours to explore the island or head home (check out time is 10.00am). Of course the Motorama 4x4xMORE Team will be by your side with several vehicles and trainers to help out if anything goes wrong. We carry recovery gear, tyre deflators and air compressors.

What sites are you planning to check out at Fraser Island with Motorama 4x4xMORE?

Close

Pending weather & tides, we plan to visit Eli Creek, Maheno Wreck, Champagne Pools & Indian Head.

Based at Eurong, you will be well located to drive to Lake McKenzie / Central Station on the Monday yourself, or explore Lake Wabby. Due to the single lane nature of the inland roads, we will not be conducting any tag-along trips to the interior of Fraser Island.

I've never been to Fraser Island, would this be a good trip to do?

Close

Yes, Fraser Island is a big island and there is lots to see, so you definitely won't cover it all in even three days. Like our other tag-along tours, this is a great way to get a feel for the island and understand how to get here.

What about dingoes?

Close

We are staying at Eurong Beach Resort, which is enclosed via a dingo proof fence. You will need to take due care outside of the fenced area and follow the Queensland Parks & Wildlife guidelines.

Why are numbers so limited?

Close

This is not a Motorama organised event but part of the 4WD QLD Fraser Island Clean Up Event. Motorama 4x4xMORE have been lucky enough to secure a limited number of spots.

What are the accomodation options?

Close

We will be staying at the Eurong Beach Resort. This is the only accomodation venue of this scale on the eastern coast of Fraser Island. It is approximately 40 min drive after arriving on the island via barge from Inskip Point.

The Resort Hotel & King Hotel Room are hotel rooms only.

The 2 bedroom apartment & 2 bedroom King apartment are both self contained, and recommended for families.
