Maheno Wreck, Fraser Island
(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Maheno Wreck is a must-stop along the 120 km (75 mi) beach of Fraser Island. It’s a photographer’s paradise and a painter's delight. See the SS Maheno half buried in the sand amid spectacular surroundings. The SS Maheno was an ocean liner belonging to the Union Company of New Zealand. On July 7, 1935, the ship was under tow, broken in Japan, when a cyclone broke her free from her tow ship and she ended up on the shores of Fraser Island.

  • The Maheno Wreck is a great photo opportunity after an exciting scoot up the beach in a fast moving 4WD bus. 
  • Sunrise is the best time to see the Wreck. Its also good when the tide is low. the busses come mid morning or mid day so you try and avoid those times 
  • If you're passing stop by to see him, but do not force yourself too much to fit in the plane. is a beautiful backdrop for photo fun, nothing more.
