What a great two days! We enjoyed every second from feeding the dolphins at tin can bay to swimming in Lake Mckenzie and with the clear skies the night we were there we got to do some amazing star gazing. Our tour guide Bryce was awesome, he made the trip what it was.

Did the two day one night camping trip to the Everglades, although you leave the second morning around 9am. Spent the afternoon canoeing and bush walking, the Everglades were stunning! The campsite was better than expected, and had a great atmosphere, our guide was great!

We did the 2 night one day trip which was more like one day one night as you leave at 9am the next morning The trip was ok although it rained and couldn't see any of the view from the sand bank this is not the tours fault. We stayed in a text with patched up holds which wasn't good... More

Thanks for your feedback Stephen. Please email me directly via gm@thediscoverygroup.com.au as I would love to know when you travelled and where you booked the tour. We don't promote this tour as a 2 day duration, as the return time has been created that way so people visiting Fraser afterwards have time to go to their safety briefing. We don't... More

I recently travelled to Fraser Island with Bryce and had a fantastic day. We saw dolphins, dingoes, pippies and goannas as well as, a stunning rain forrest walk, a an iddilic swim in the picturesque Lake MacKenzie. It was a radical 4WD beach adventure, certainly not for the faint hearted. Bryce's commentary was fantastic as was his guiding style, keeping... More

Probably just me, but I found the Fraser Island trip so boring. I even slept through the most uncomfortable and bumpy ride known to man. Driving along a 70 mile beach, swimming for 1 hour and driving back.. Not for me. Lunch was great and Cory the driver was really nice :)

You can choose several day tours with this company, I took the 2 day tour to Fraser Island. The bus station where you will be picked up in Noosa Heads, is right across from the YHA hostel, which is very nice, because I had to be there at 6:15am!! Henning, was my guide/driver and there was a group of about... More

We had Peter for our two day trip to Fraser Island and it was brilliant. He was very informative, energetic and made the trip very interesting. If they are all like Peter then we definitely recommend a trip with the Discovery Group, we had a fantastic time.

The tour left promptly at 6:30 am! We returned at 6:00 pm. We sat in the first seat of the main vehicle. A great spot if you can snag it. More leg room, a view out the front cab window, easy to hear the driver and fresh in addition to A/C. If you don't like bumps don't go. This is... More

The pace of the tour is a little fast for my taste ( meaning you spend a lot of time in the bus) but we got to see a good bit of the island. Our driver / guide was very funny and gave us a lot of infos. The accommodation they use. On the island is a good one as... More

We did the Fraser Island overnight tour and it was absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide, "Dingo Dave", was super friendly and had a real passion for the job. We were very well looked after and learned heaps of truly amazing stuff about a truly amazing place. Although we saw plenty of fresh footprints, sadly we didn't see any dingos this... More
