What You Can Expect
Your 2-day tour includes one breakfast, two lunches and one dinner, and overnight accommodation in your choice of a shared or private room at a beachside lodge in Happy Valley. Before the pickup in Rainbow Beach, you'll also go through Cooloola National Park and stop in Can Bay for dolphin viewing. Look for wildlife on Fraser Island such as dingoes, eagles, migrating whales, rays and more, and learn from your knowledgeable guide about the ecology, history and natural features of beautiful Fraser Island.
After pickup from your Sunshine Coast accommodation in locations from Mooloolaba to Noosa, travel by 4WD through Cooloola National Park. Stop in Can Bay to see wild dolphins and have the opportunity to feed them (own expense). Please note, if you are starting from Rainbow Beach, you will not have the opportunity to feed the dolphins.
After collecting fellow travelers at Rainbow Beach, catch the ferry to Fraser Island. Upon arrival, drive through beaches and rainforest before arriving at Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Your purpose-built 4WD vehicle allows great off-road access and has large windows, so you won’t miss a thing. Take a guided walk through Pile Valley with its towering trees, lush green ferns and streams. Continue on to Central Station, a former logging center. Visit Lake McKenzie, one of 40 crystal-clear lakes on the island where you can swim in the blue water or relax on the white–sand beach. Enjoy a picnic lunch before heading to your beachside accommodation. Have free time in the afternoon then meet your group for dinner.
Overnight: Happy Valley, Fraser Island
Day 2: Fraser Island — Noosa (B, L)
Have breakfast then set out to see the colorful volcano–shaped formations of Rainbow Gorge. Then stop at Eli Creek, the largest freshwater stream on the eastern coast of Fraser Island. There you can opt to walk up the creek along a boardwalk then hop in the gentle waters to float back to the beach. Continue on to the Maheno shipwreck and discover the history of this once-luxurious passenger ship that now sits rusting in the sand. Stop for a picnic lunch in a scenic outdoor location before continuing along the beach to Pinnacles and Coloured Sands. See the impressive cliffs of the Cathedrals and take in stunning panoramic views from Indian Head before departing the island. Your tour ends with drop-off at your starting point in Rainbow Beach, or Noosa and the Sunshine Coast.
This trip was amazing. Our driver/guide was brilliant and funny. He knew exactly where all the important bits where on Fraser Island, even down to certain trees in the forrest. The vehicle that they use is brilliant and far better than the cars you see other trips using. Accomodation was lovely, better than some of the hotels we had stayed in on the main land. highly recommend this to anyone thinking of booking the trip

Brilliant! I've done more than a few tours in Australia and Europe, and this was one of my favourites. Darren was a great guide, informative and entertaining, not to mention an excellent driver. Fraser is stunning, and accommodation took us all by surprise - Happy Valley cabins are all wood, comfy beds, and superbly clean. Seeing eagles, dingos, and even whales in a distance was an added bonus. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
this tour was awesome! it was organized by the organisation discoverygroup; we had the best guide ever! He told us so many intresting things about the island! Then the lunchs were delicious and the sleeprooms quite luxury (for backpackers). I would do it again!
Driver was very informative and open to suggestions from passengers about what we'd like to see and do. Very good driving, always felt safe. A great mix of nationalities, all very friendly. Modern and clean overnight accommodation. Plenty of food.
Amazing 2 Days Tour with a great guid !! Always funny stories to told us : Food was also good and the hotel too. I think two days are enough to visit the Island. I would definitely recommand you this tour :
