Absolutely spectacular day! Picked up bright and early in a large 4wd. Scenic drive through to Tin can bay where we stopped for morning tea. Then onto barge to cross over to Fraser Island. Drive along the beach was exhilarating and arrived at Lake Mackenzie to a beautiful beach and aqua waters. Stayed for an hour or so then lunch... More

Me and my partner joined the BBQ lunch discovery tour and we both enjoyed it a lot. We were picked up from the Gympie Terrace pier (although the cruise was slightly late) and was introduced to our skipper – Heiny. As the boat was already quite full when we got on, we had to sit right at the back in... More

Lovely trip today to Fraser Island with discovery group tours. Picked up from our hotel on time at 0615, then a fantastic drive in a 4WD truck along with 12 other people. Great guide called Pete - very friendly and chatty. Beautiful views of the rainbow sands/Fraser island along the 40mile beach drive - a great experience of its own!... More

We did the two day one night Fraser Island tour. Our guide, Edward, was professional, friendly and extremely passionate about the island. He planned the two days carefully so that we would be able to enjoy the island in the best weather conditions and made sure we got to Lake McKenzie early and avoided the crowds. The accommodation was clean... More

A group of us did this tour & was much more than my expectations. Our guide Heike was great from the start. We cruised up the Noosa river then moored for amazing morning tea & then picked up the canoes & paddled up to Harry's Hut through the Everglades. Some of the group stayed on board so you have that...

This was one of the highlights of my trip! It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and I would encourage anyone staying near Noosa to do this trip. The boat trip was very comfortable and our guide Heine was very knowledgable with a great sense of humour. The first tea stop is in a beautiful, secluded area where you can go... More
