Overview

Discover the natural beauty of Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, on a 4-wheel-drive day trip from Rainbow Beach or Noosa. As you traverse the island by purpose-built 4WD, make stops at lakes, white-sand beaches, the colored sand cliffs and other natural attractions, and keep your eyes open for wildlife like birds and reptiles. Lunch is included.
  • Fraser Island day trip
  • Enjoy a full-day tour traveling the 'Beach Highway' by 4WD vehicle
  • See the colored sands of Cooloola National Park
  • Enjoy a swim in freshwater Lake McKenzie
  • Explore Historic Central Station and Wangoolooba Creek

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.

Fraser Island is a very beautiful and unusual island. Our Viator tour took us to the fabulous Lake Mckenzie where we swam in a fresh water lake, explored the rain forest and watched the dingos on the amazing 75 mile beach. It was a fantastic day out - one I'd definitely recommend.

We had a great time on this tour and I am so glad we did it while we were in Noosa. It is unavoidable but the downside to this trip is just how much driving there is. If you have extra days to spare i would suggest doing a 2 day trip so that you maybe do less driving and see more of the spots. Beyond this, the guide was fantastic- super knowledgeable and very friendly. The spots we stopped were beautiful. Also, the van needs more air conditioning. It was very warm to the point of feeling sick during parts of the drive.

Heaps of great fun! The Island is beautiful, and Lake McKenzie is stunning. If we could spend even longer at the lake that would be awesome.
The pick-up and drop off was timely and the tour was informative and interesting.
One thing to note is that the 4WD vehicle is VERY bouncy - especially at the back. I had my seatbelt on but I was literally flying off my seat. I usually get travel sickness but felt fine, which was great because it felt like a roller coaster at times! Just something to be aware of.

We loved the drive along the beach and had fun exploring during our quick tea time. This tour is mostly driving around the island with a few quick stops so I wouldn't recommend for young kids. My only issue was that all the tour operators arrive at Lake Mackenzie at the same time and it was crowded! No chance to get any great photos.

Awesome trip. Mega vehicle. One chap on the tour really struggled on the walk. If our guide had gone to help/check on him I would have given it 5*s. The walk isn’t as easy as described. Beautiful place, good lunch, good pick ups. Needed more time there.

Great day out with pleasant salad lunch. Our 4WD proved to be a comfortable and very necessary means of transport as we explored the beach and inland switchbacks which serve as road between the places of interest. The guide was informative and efficiently organised the series of activities and we even got to see a wild dingo. Definitely a trip Id recommend!
