Eli Creek is one of the best swimming holes on Fraser Island. A freshwater stream with a sandy bottom pours out of the forest here, and into the sea. This location is as touristy as they come. There are backpacker tours galore and people tubing down the creek. You can walk a short boardwalk up the creek and then float back down towards the ocean. It’s quite a relaxing experience.
