The service and expertise with the staff was very good. Definitely do the 4x4 guided busstour to get round the island unless you are an experienced offroader and rent or bring your own proper 4x4. Our guide on the buss was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna as well as ancient and modern history associated with the island.
The food and drinks in the restaurants and bars is just okay, nothing special and a bit pricey. Even if it is common I do not aprechiate to have to pay for wifi either when I am a guest.
Fraser island really is a must if you are in the area, and I enjoyed my stay imensely.
The tour on the island was excellent. Our ranger Martin was very informative, cheerful and looked after us well .
The down side of the tour was the misconception of a three day tour . This was really due to lack of communication regarding ferry times . We were given specific times to sail to and from the island which would only have given us 41 hours in total on the island!!!
Through investigation we found that we could travel whenever it suited us . This however was too late for day one. We did not arrive until 5pm on day one . The rest we sorted ourselves. It would also have been good to know that our booking was at a quiet time when not all of the facilities were open. All in all a great experience but would have benefitted from better communication regarding arrangements
A 1 day trip would be just as good and much less expensive. The resort was beautiful, but dinners were not included and were extremely expensive. It wasn't even 3 days. There is no time to do anything on day 1 and 3 and they try to go too many places on day 2. All I really wanted was to spend the day at Lake McKenzie, but we only got an hour thanks to some idiot Chinese girls that couldn't follow directions and didn't finish the extended bush walk. We had to go back to find them. You need a tour with less bouncing around on a bus, and more time at the more popular spots. The buffet lunch at the other resort was not very good either. On a previous vacation I took a day trip with another company. They were door to door from the Sunshine Coast, and provided a BBQ lunch at the lake, which was much better, and more fun. My main motivation to drive to Hervey Bay was the possibility of seeing whales or dolphins in the Bay. We saw nothing on either crossing but merky green water. We were also not informed that we had to pay for parking. We got less enjoyment at 4 times the cost!
