Full description

Join a guided day trip to K'gari (Fraser Island) in a 4WD bus and visit highlights, such as Lake McKenzie, 75 Mile Beach, and the Maheno Shipwreck, with return ferry transfers included. Let your driver traverse the tracks and tides to ensure an enjoyable experience on the world’s largest sand island.

Begin your adventure with pickup from your Hervey Bay accommodation, or make your own way to River Heads. Take a 40-minute ferry ride to K'gari, keeping a look out for dolphins, turtles, and other marine life.

Once on the island, follow your local guide to see the stunning natural sights. If English is your second language, download the free foreign language app prior to the tour and use it offline for audio commentary. Learn fascinating facts about the island’s history, and its flora and fauna.

Travel in an air-conditioned bus to Central Station, a former logging station. Then stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient king ferns, towering ghost gums, and pine trees.

Continue to Lake McKenzie and swim in the crystal blue waters or relax on the sandy beaches. Next up is the Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Choose to take a flight over the island (at an additional cost), or float down Eli Creek.

Visit the Maheno shipwreck and enjoy a photo stop at the rusting wreck of the Maheno. Also, see The Pinnacles colored sands, and learn how these formations were created. Board the 5:00 PM ferry back to River Heads, and get dropped off at your accommodation.

We were picked up by Brendan from our hotel who was full of stories and a really funny guy! The tour was amazing with good amount of time in every spot! If you get the chance to fly on the plane off the beach I highly recommend that! Hayden was our tour guy and he had the perfect balance of talking and leaving us to our thoughts throughout the trip! 10/10 everyday of the week! Thank you guys!

This tour was amazing. As we did not have a 4WD car we were happy to still be able to discover K‘Gary Island by a safe 4WD bus. Our guide, Geoff, was helpful, funny, friendly and explained a log of interesting stories and facts about the island. The program was tough but this was good as we could see many places in one day. Lunch was delicious! Fully recommend this tour!

From pick up to drop off it was so easy and enjoyable. All staff were friendly especially Guy our tour guide. The tracks are bumpy but that adds to the experience! We visited on a cloudy rainy day and saw dingos and strolled down the creek and took a dip in Mckenzie lake. The weather didn't stop us having a great time. Lunch was good nothing special but good nonetheless. Only gripe would be to have slightly longer for lunch.
