We got really much information from him. The accomodation was comfortable and compared to others on the island the accomodation is the best on fraser island.... More

When visiting Noosa see Discovery Tours for visits to Eumundi Markets, the Everglades or magnificent Fraser Island. Let them do the driving and relax.

One day is not enough in Fraser. It is a good experience, it is adventurous and the food is very good. You get the chance to see only Lake McKenzie and the Rain Forest though. Being on the truck driving on the sand and among trees is great fun! Better to do more than one day, I suggest.

These trucks are really great fun and air conditioned! Had a great day exploring Frazer Island on one. Our day included a stop at Lake Mackenzie, a fab BBQ lunch, trek and my favorite a drive along the beach highways on both the Frazer Island and mainland Australia. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend.
