Snakes on Fraser Island

SnakesWe recently had a question from a passenger about snakes on Fraser Island. The passenger asked “are we likely to see any snakes? I have a horrendous phobia of them, and you definitely don’t want to be there if I see one!”

For those of you who are interested, sometimes we may see a sea snake which is washed up on the beach but not very often. We cannot remember the last time any of our passengers came upon a snake while off the bus – they tend to keep their distance. As Fraser Island is a sand island, vibrations pass along the ground relatively easily. As a result, snakes tend hear our passengers coming a lot earlier and tend to be gone by the time people get near their location. No need for you to worry, our Driver’s are very knowledgable about the local wildlife!
