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

We travelled with The Discovery Group to Fraser Island (the worlds largest sand Island) for a day trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is a long day (6.15am pick-up and a 5.30pm return), but worth the early start for a 4WD adventure. Scott, our tour guide/driver was impressive, drove very well, clearly loves his job, delivered expert and informative commentary... More

My friend and I went on a two day trip to Fraser and it was amazing. The lady in the shop was very friendly and helped us decide on a two day rather than a one day trip - brilliant choice. We drove in a huge bus (4WD) and our guide, Dave, was doing a great job in both giving... More

We did the day tour to Fraser Island recently and it certainly delivered a perfect experience. The ride up on the luxurious style bus was peaceful followed by a stop at Lake Mckenzie, which did not disappoint! It was more beautiful than we imagined! You just can't take a bad photo! Lunch was perfect with beautiful fresh wraps. We got... More

Good value trip. Slow pace and easy for older travellers to keep up. Most of the older people stayed on the boat while we jumped on the canoes. Very calm and relaxing trip. Got to see a lot of nature in the Everglades.
