To really move around Fraser Island you'd need a four-wheel-drive vehicle with enough clearance from the ground to manage soft spots in the sand and to clear through the scrub. You'll need a permit to take a vehicle into the island.
Fraser Island's sand beaches are a designated highway with a speed limit of 80 kilometres an hour. Near tourist resorts, the beach doubles as a landing field so keep an eye out for planes that may be touching down. Inland the speed limit is 35 kilometres an hour. In the heavy going, it's near impossible to exceed that speed.
