We had a great time on the Frazer Island trip! Also great you get one night free before and one night after the trip at the hostel!! Our tour leader Brett was the best, he taught us so much about the island! Great campsite and so much fun! Would 100% recommend this trip to everyone! One of the best parts... More

Really chill place to stay with a good vibe. The kitchen was a decent size and the bunks fairly comfortable. Bathrooms were a little dirty but good size. Nice outdoor picnic table area with hammocks. Overall fun place to stay.

Stayed at Pippies Beach house 1 night before and 1 night after visiting Fraser Island, it's very basic, a lot of outdoor space, there is a pool and a bonfire for night time. The showers are great, the mattresses not too brilliant, but the atmosphere is fabulous.

I slept there for one night, that was okay but I wouldn't stay much longer. + it was very rainy so we watched TV, Greyhound bus station is very closed Wi-fi ( just in kitchen) - staff wasn't frindly, it was loud and not clean

We did the 4x4 tag along tour and it was a fun experience. Met some great people, and Gaz the tour guide was certainly one of them. Very knowledgable about the island, always cheerful and brought a great atmosphere to the group. My one critique would be of the campsite. The company really need to sort this out for the... More

We booked the tour on book me (cheapest place!) for $210 pp. This includes accomodation at Pippies for the night before and night after trip, we had a camper so asked if we could sleep in that in their car park which they allowed. You get free breakfast (toast with plenty of spreads!), tea and coffee and all meals whilst... More

We did the 3 day 2 night Fraser tour and it was by far the best thing we did in Australia!! (We did the whole east coast and the down the middle stretch from Darwin to Adeliade) Pippies was unreal and Brett was an amazing guide that made the tour that much better!

I was looking for something super cool and not expensive, a place to park my van for accommodation, and use the facilities for the toiletry and cooking. I was parked in a camp, instead of a parking that it is often the case in other backpackers. Remember, it's a beach house, not a palace, this theme is perfectly applied without... More

Stayed at Pippies one night before and after my Fraser Island tour and it didn't disappoint. Luckily got the same room both times which was good, although no lockers but these could be purchased near reception so you can put valuables there for during your tour. Free wifi although it is luck of the draw whether it works. Byo alcohol... More
