We decided to try due to the great reviews. The service was as expected but the reality is that this is a poor option for families with young children, you spend 8-10 hours in the car/truck and only 60 minutes at best in the lake. Our children are very good at spending time I'm car and planes but the ratio was hard even for us. There are 150 better ways to spend your money and time in the Sunshine Coast

My wife and I booked a day trip with Fraser Island Adventure Tours. We got picked up from our accommodation promptly at 06.25 and made our way out to 40 mile beach where we stopped for some tea, coffee and Biscuits. We then headed out to the barge that took us across to Fraser Island. From the barge, there was another bit of a drive to Eurong town when we begin our drive on off road tracks through the rainforest up to Lake McKenzie. The track had been soaked with rain the night before which made the drive a lot smoother. If you do suffer from any sort of car sickness then I would give the trip a miss but we loved it! Lake McKenzie was beautiful with silver sand and crystal clear waters. Our lunch was great with a choice of Fish, prawns or steak with loads of salads to compliment. Our trip back to Noosa was broken up by another tea/coffee stop on the mainland then a 2.5hr drive back to Noosa. The 4x4 bus was really good and managed the (at times) very difficult tracks. Our guide Sam was really excellent and very knowledgable about the history, plant and animal life on the island. Would thoroughly recommend the tour to anyone.

Although it looked a little expensive, the day trip was worth every penny or cent, if you are not from the UK. We had a fantastic guide in Tim, who seemed to know everything about the island, the wildlife, trees, sea, you name it, he knew about it! We left from Noosa, and had a 90min drive by coach to the pick up point for the barge, then the fun started. We drove most of the day on the beach, with the sea breaking yards away from you. Dingo's on the beach, planes taking off, guy's fishing, lots to watch. Then we travelled in land, which also was a great experiance, driving along the sand tracks. We spent a full 12 hours on the tour, of which 8 hours was spent on Fraser Island, including lunch. We then had an added bonus, when we travelled all the way back from Sunshine Beach to Noosa, via the beach, all 90km, with the tide coming in and with only a few metres between the sea and the land, breathtaking!!

We went on this tour 4 years ago and it was absolutely fantastic. The tour guide, Peter, made us laugh the whole time. I would definitely recommend this company for a tour of Fraser island and if Peter is still working there ask if you can be put on his bus. Based on all of the other comments on this website I think Peter should win an award for the employee of the year :-)
