This company runs small group 1 & 2 day tours to Fraser Island, a sand island and Nat'l Park, only accessible by 4WD. The island has varied forests ranging from scrub to thick rainforest and beautiful 'perched' lakes and creeks with crystal clear water.

Our initial worries about the stereotypical experience of a couple in their 50's going on a guided tour soon melted when the guide Henning turned up in a massive 4 wheel drive truck. He was quirky and knowledgable about the area and led us on a journey of discovery to Fraser island on the one day tour. We felt like... More

We were two couples, mid 20s and mid 50s and our group of 18 was pretty much evenly split between these two demographics. And from being picked up in the "monster bus" in the early morning in Noosa to being dropped off the next day's evening we were enthralled. Superbly led our understated but informative Zimbabwean guide the trip was... More

This was a great day out. Trevor was an excellent guide. We chose to canoe up the river which had recently had rain so we were paddling quite hard. Going up was not for the faint hearted and you need a reasonable level of fitness to get to Harry's hut. BBQ lunch by Trevor was great. Good day out.

Amazing experience, great way to see some of Fraser Island if you don't have your own 4WD or little time, safer too. We saw quite a few vehicles stuck in the sand so I felt very safe in this vehicle. We saw a young dingo that came up close to the group while we had stopped for a morning tea... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two days on Fraser Island. Our group was a mixture of ages which was terrific. The accommodation and food provided was excellent. Now about our driver/guide Dave - what a star. He was kind and courteous to all, he had an excellent knowledge and care of the environment. A excellent driver. But best... More

Myself and my wife spent yesterday on an 11 hour tour with Henning from discovery tours. We had an absolutely amazing time and this was one of our honeymoon highlights. We did strike it lucky by having tides on our side to enjoy hundreds of kilometers across beaches rather than roads and this did add to the enjoyment. Out guide... More

Well organised and enjoyable trip. Driver/guide Darren was very informative and was an excellent driver ensuring the comfort of his passengers at all times given some very rough and sandy roads. A swim in a beautiful clear lake and a 45 minute walk through a creek and forest setting was magnificent.

Recommended. Our host, Henning, was great fun and very knowledgeable. We were considering doing Fraser Island independently with a 4WD, but in the end we were glad that we left it to the experts and cost wise there wasn't much in it. A great way to see Fraser Island, but as Henning said - with the one day tour you... More

The trip consists of a boat ride up the river and through the adjoining lakes, into the river system itself, morning tea & biscuit, and a BBQ lunch. The boat journey has moments where it's moving rapidly, but much of the time is spent very quietly & slowly travelling along the riverbanks. There are options to canoe (kayak?) from the... More
