    Expect to pay about 10% more for Fuel on Fraser, before you hit Fraser, fill up at the Shell or BP at Rainbow Beach Township (travelling inland or beach ,you will have to hit the Rainbow Beach Township) fuel is normally cheaper here than most places in Brisbane, but be aware you wont get fuel after 5.30pm.

    BTW, The bakery next to the Shell sells great sliced bread and the pies are damb fine.



    You will need permits to travel Teewah Beach, and Rainbow Beach from DI, you can get them online or at the office at Tewantin (just before you get on the ferry)

    Manta Ray barge tickets can also be purchased online or on the boat itself, but they don't have "Fraser" Beach permits (as i found out last time assuming they did)


    Suggest getting all permits online before you travel, as its often cheaper and less hassle once you have signed up.
