Fraser Island 4WD Tours

Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, and is full of pristine landscapes, white sand beaches and crystal lakes. Because Fraser Island is only accessible by ferry, 4WD vehicles are needed for getting around. While you can rent your own, most opt for a 4WD tour with a knowledgeable guide. Not only is this convenient, it allows you to see as much as possible in a short amount of time while also learning the necessary background information and having a more adventurous type of ride.

A Fraser 4WD Eco-Tour is a great option that begins in Noosa and gives you the entire day to explore Fraser Island. Begin your excursion with morning tea at Rainbow Beach, named for its vibrant palate of colors and a legend stating an Aboriginal rainbow spirit plunged into the beach’s cliffs leaving a splattering of beautiful hues. After taking a ferry over to Fraser Island you’ll head to Seventy-Five Mile Beach, named for its impressive length, where you’ll partake in some off-roading thrills. Other experiences include a guided rainforest walk, swimming in a freshwater lake and savoring a traditional Australian barbecue with dishes like Saltwater Barramundi fish fillet, premium porterhouse beef steak, juicy sausages, baby spinach and sweet potato frittata, and fresh garden salad.

A similar but slightly different tour experience is a Fraser Island 4WD Eco Day Trip, which departs from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The excursion begins with a cable-car ride into Cooloola National Park for morning tea on the beach before taking the ferry over to the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Fraser Island. From there, enjoy a scenic off-road drive along the iconic Seventy-Five Mile Beach, take a guided rainforest hike through Central Station or Pile Valley, go for a dip in either Lake McKenzie or Lake Birrabeen, dig into a traditional Aussie barbecue and end the day with afternoon tea on a secluded beach.

If you’re looking to spend multiple days on Fraser Island, a 2-Day Fraser Island 4WD Eco Tour departs from Noosa and allows for a longer time to see the sights as you’ll overnight at Happy Valley Apartments. On Day One you’ll enjoy adventures like dolphin viewing and feeding at Tin Can Bay, hiking through the fertile Pile Valley, and swimming in the crystalline Lake McKenzie with its pure white silica sand (great for cleaning jewelry and skin!). A picnic lunch and Aussie barbecue are also part of the itinerary, as well as free time in the afternoon on your own. On Day Two, the vibrant Rainbow Gorge, crystal clear Eli Creek (one of Fraser Island’s top natural wonders) and the once-opulent Maheno shipwreck begin the day. From there, you’ll see the colorful Pinnacles and Coloured Sands for views of the multi-colored cliffs of the Cathedrals, as well as take in marine wildlife like turtles, dolphins and sharks from Indian Head before journeying back.
