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

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.

Followed a day tour programme by Fraser Island Discovery Tours. We're 19 on the tour in an excellent four-wheel drive truck with an Australian guide of German birth who gave a lot of information on Noosa, the Fraser Island, the culture of the original Aboriginal inhabitants and the flora and fauna of the Island. Notwithstanding heavy rains we had a... More

What a great day heading up the Noosa River with Andy at the helm. He was informative and humorous and obliging. Morning tea was muffins and lamingtons and some of the passengers got off here to canoe up to Harry's Hut which was approx 6 kms ( Oh to be young again ). The slow trip through the Narrows was...

I wasn't sure whether this tour would be worth it for us ... We had already been to the rainforest ... But it absolutely was. Fraser Island is amazing and this tour helped to give you a taste of it. The 4wd vehicle was a great way to do it .... Driving at speed along the beach highway, coping with... More

Both our trips with Discovery were excellent cannot fault. The Noosa Everglades tour was fun, cruising slowing down the River and then full throttle through the lake was great fun.
