Fraser tours - ex-Hervey Bay or ex-Brisbane?

My husband and I are planning 2 days in Fraser Island in early Feb and planning on doing the 2 day Fraser Explorer tour. Is it better to start the tour from Hervey Bay or is it ok if we start from Brisbane/Goladcoast as we will be in these cities before we head for Fraser? Any other tour operators that you would recommend?

Hi Anuja,

The Fraser Explorer Tours do not have transfers from Gold Coast or Brisbane, so you will need to drive to Hervey Bay (which will give you an opportunity to see some other great stuff on the way - Australia Zoo, Eurong Markets [wed,sat], Noosa, Glasshouse Mountains).

Hi Anuja, as stated already the comppany you are looking at begins its tours from either Hervey Bay and Rainbow Beach. What ever tour company and tour you decide on, by the time a Brisbane based Fraser Island tour company picks up its passengers from their hotels in and around Brisbane, gets on the road to either the Rainbow Beach or Hervey Bay barges, IMO you've lost a good part of your day. Again IMO, if you can get yourself to either place the afternoon before your booked tour, book an early departure tour, you'll get more out of your tour.
