This is the second time I have travelled with Fraser Island Discovery; they are an excellent company to travel with who I would highly recommend. Our guide was the wonderful Hemming – he had a great sense of humour and had an amazing knowledge of Fraser Island which kept us informed and entertained all day. The day trip ticks off... More

A fascinating tour in purpose-built vehicles. Our driver, Ed, picked us up from Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, and gave us an extensive, knowledgeable and enthusiastic insight as he drove us over metalled and unmetalled roads to the ferry across to Fraser Island. We then rode for several miles along the highway (sandy beach) until turning into the rain forest from the... More

Amazing day out. A must do, unforgettable experience. Travel for over an hour along the spectacular beach, to board the ferry across to Fraser Island. Stopped at Lake Elizabeth for an hour to take a unique dip in the freshwater lake. Blew us away. 30 min walk through the bush was a nice extra. Early start, pick up and drop... More

Darren our guide was fantastic. He kept us entertained, telling us all about the island history, fauna & flora, took us wherever we wanted when we wanted. The bus were great especially through the rough tracks. The meals & breaks were great & food healthy especially when you are about to walk through the rainforest. The accommodation at Happy Valley...

We were so surprised by our tour, it completely exceeded all expectations. Our tour guide, Ed, was absolutely fantastic, we couldn't have asked for a more informative, friendly and truly passionate tour of the island. We left loving Fraser Island as much as he did! The one night accommodation in happy valley was brilliant, by far the best nights sleep... More

We were picked up and taken to the wharf with time for a coffee while they collected other travellers. Our guide Trevor was great as was our bus driver. We were a group of baby boomers and backpackers with just over half from overseas. We all had great day.I am not an overly fit person but paddled in both directions.... More

Booked a 2 day Fraser island tour in advance and stayed over in Noosa the previous night to catch the bus next morning at 6.30 from the Jetty. Noosa itself is a beautiful place to stay and plenty of restaurants to eat out. Went with my wife and 2.5 year old son, we were initially worried how we will manage... More

My husband and I took this trip yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. This despite the dodgy weather and occasional tropical downpours. Skipper and tour guide Andy gave an excellent and entertaining commentary throughout. Loved his dry Kiwi humour. Delicious afternoon tea at Harry's Hut. Fabulous photographic opportunities along the way. Thoroughly recommended for those who enjoy experiencing nature and... More

I just went on the Everglade tour. The guide Andy fantastic; not a dull moment during the whole day! And very understanding and accommodating towards unique needs my travel companion had. The tour itself was beautiful, boat ride up the Noosa river to the Everglades amazing and well worth every cent. Morning tea, lunch bbq (and mosquito spray) was all... More

We went to Fraser Island on the day trip with two kids aged 3 & 4 and a half in mid-March. The Discovery group was the only your group who were happy to take kids under 5 and fitted their bus out with the required child seats. The whole day was great - though long. Our guide Dave kept things... More
