What You Can Expect

Fraser Island 4WD Tour from Noosa or Rainbow Beach

Fraser Island

After pickup, your Fraser Island day trip starts as you cross the Noosa River, heading toward Cooloola National Park, an Aboriginal site and the gateway to the island. Make a stop for morning tea at Rainbow Beach, and then catch the ferry to the island, where your 4-wheel-drive adventure begins.

At 710 square miles (1,840 square km), World Heritage–listed Fraser Island is considered to be the planet’s largest sand island and is home to wildlife from birds to reptiles, including the occasional saltwater crocodile. Aboard your purpose-built 4WD with large windows, traverse the varied off-road landscape, from coastline to rainforest, to visit sites like Seventy-Five Mile Beach and Lake McKenzie. Take a self-guided walk through Pile Valley Rainforest to see the island’s satinay trees, and journey down sandy trails through a forest of brushbox trees to reach a secluded beach, where you can enjoy afternoon tea.

During the day, a lunch of wraps with cold deli meats and salad is provided. Your day trip ends with return to your departure point.

An exceptional tour that provides bumps and thrills. The bumps from the trek to Fraser Island via the 4WD, which is amusing. The tour guide is outstanding with more knowledge than a Google search. With a friendly manner that welcomes you throughout the tour. Whale watching on route to Fraser Island and the great views pass you by. Significant stops for the best views are out of this world. The highlight is Lake McKenzie a perched lake that is a natural wonder. The guide states it does wonders for the body, which is probably true, but check the temperature before jumping in as it can be cold. Lunch was great as you are joined by birds, lizards and people hoping to see a dingo. As we left the island a dingo kindly appeared to say goodbye and what more could you want from a tour.

Very good all day tour. Started off at 0620 from our hotel and returned around 5.30pm. Great day out with a snack breakfast on Rainbow beach. See dolphins, a dingo, and other wild life on the tour. Really great driving along the beach.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was a full day. I was picked up from my accommodation at 6.15am and returned at 5.15pm. The guide and driver Edward was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable in regards to Fraser Island and its rich Aboriginal history. Fraser Island is so clean and beautiful. Lake McKenzie has to be seen to be believed. I would definitely recommend this tour.

My favourite date of the holiday, Brock did a wonderful job of driving arranging lunch talking us through the history of the place etc. Loved that he stopped for photos at Rainbow Beach near the coloured sands. I'd recommend this trip to everyone!
