Day tour to Fraser Islands

Good tour, riding a cool vehicle and getting good guidance on the hole trip. Small group, good fresh food and a cool place to visit.

Me, my boyfriend and two of our friends just had a fantastic tour of Fraser Island with The Discovery Group! I can't believe just how many amazing things we were able to fit into two days - feeding dolphins, swimming in Lake Mckenzie and Eli Creek, seeing the beautiful Rainbow beach... the list goes on! We had Jacob as our... More

Great guide, cooks a beautiful BBQ lunch!. Such a wonderful unspoilt area on the Sunshine Coast, the peace and quite is amazing. Some agility required getting on and off the boat at the wharfs and the stairs on the boat quite steep. Having said that the guide is more than helpful. Not suitable for wheelchairs.

Great value for a six hour cruise. Trevor was an excellent skipper and guide. Laid back and laconic, we learned so much about Noosa and environs in such a personable way. The boat gives all passengers a clear view of the riverbank sights. There wasn't any major Ah Ha moments but it was all very pleasant as you travel through... More

We were picked up from our resort and taken to the Discovery Ferry which was waiting for our departure. Dave our tour guide for the day met us with a smile and friendly banter and we were soon on our way. Dave's commentary throughout the day was very interesting and entertaining and added to the whole tour experience. We stopped... More

We were fortunate to have excellent weather for the day trip to the everglades and were pleased with the excellent level of organisation by The Discovery Group. The catering was good and it was pleasing to have proper crockery and cutlery instead of paper and plastic. Dave our tour guide and boat operator was knowledgeable and had a great sense... More

Our guide Brock was knowledgable and very accomodating to my special needs. Yes it is a very bumpy ride on the island (as they need to take the sandy roads during the high tide) but that is beyond their control - its due to the dry weather that the sands are not packed down to make the road "flat". The... More

Pick up was early 6.15am at Noosa. Long bumpy ride through the forest to the ferry. Drive at great speed along to beach was exciting. Stopped for breakfast from the back of the vehicle standing on the beach. Bumpy rolling ride to Lake Mckenzie which was fabulous. Picnic lunch in the forest was good , even had wine. The rainforest... More
