eli creek Fraser Island

Postby gqpatrol » Sat Apr 28, 2007 7:53 am

I'd say where this unfortunate incident occured is Eli Creek, which can be a bit dicey as the tide comes in. Not a good time to stop for a look, as the sand just washes away from under you tyres. We've had the water way up over the bonnet of the patrol (3 inch lift) and you just have to lead foot it. He/she who hesitates is sunk. Lots of fun though. :?#

Eli Creek

Eli creek is the largest freshwater creek flowing down to the sea on Fraser Island. It's a great place for a swim as the currently gently pushes you down stream, and it's all sandy. Could be one in Hervey Bay, but Eli Creek is one of the famous attractions on Fraser. 8)

Also on Fraser, text as follows quoted from the abovementioned website -


7. This is Eli Creek, Hervey Bay, winding its way into Gatakers Bay just east of Point Vernon. Not to be confused with a creek by the same name on Fraser Island. :grin:
