Fraser Island 4WD Tour from Brisbane

Brisbane or Gold Coast, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was an extremely awesome tour! Our tour guide was really informative and showed us the best parts of the island. Mackenzie lake was extremely breathtaking, and was even better to swim in. We only saw one dingo, which is the biggest concern of everyone while on Fraser island, and it was stealing from the two local fisherman. One recommendation I give, if your concerned a dingo might run away with your back pack, is just clasp it around a tree branch say 5 feet off the ground. We even saw 5 wild horses, a few kangaroos and a dolphin on our tour. Driving along the beach was an awesome feeling. If your in Brisbane and have time to take a day tour then this is one you shouldn't miss!

My Review
The first stop in this adventure was a local farm which had Kangaroo's you could feed. The second stop along this tour was a Koala sanctuary. You get to see a bunch of koala's hanging around in a tree. There weren't many in this sanctuary but was well worth it to see these animals in there natural habitat. The penguins were the star of the show. It was really neat seeing them pop up on the beach in a group, then at once running across the beach to the grassy area's where their burrow's were. There are 3 options here for this tour. Up to penguins it's all the same the difference's are as follows. 1. Basic option when you get to the penguin area you get to go down to some concrete stands and wait, sit, and watch. 2. Box area. This is a section that's about 100 meters to the right of everyone else. This is where all the penguins run too. I think this is the better option. Only 150 people can come to this area. Most of the penguins run through this area. 3. Private Penguin Tour. You get to sit on the beach in the sand, they provide a cushion thing to sit on so your not sitting directly on the beach. I do not feel we got to see as much as we could, had we done the box tour. You also get a tour through the penguin area. The only difference here is someone explains what your seeing. The price difference wasn't that much, and I'm guessing in the summer times you will see more. One note to know, you can not take pictures of the penguins. It will blind them, but they have a nice little stand that sells pictures.
