Do not hesitate choosing this tour, if we could give it 10 stars we would. So much fun, white sand better than Whitehaven, remote, few tourists and wonderful staff. See the untouched Fraser Island - what an experience!

I had heard from so many travellers that it was best not to book a tour to Fraser Island as they're all really busy and commercial, however this tour couldn't have been further from that. Including my friend and I, there were 9 of us on the tour, and we didn't see another tourist on the whole trip. We had... More

Initially, we were thinking of going through cool dingo tours. We were advised they would provide more destinations in the one day tour. After speaking with a local, he explained to us that sometimes doing the road less travelled offers a greater experience. He was 100% right.
