Fraser Island Explorer Tour

Depart From Hervey Bay and Stay in Comfort at Eurong Beach Resort

Just imagine swimming in fresh-water lakes, bright as jewels ringed by white sandy beaches, walking through tall ancient rainforest growing in sand, four-wheel driving along a beach flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs to find a ship wreck.

Bring your camera and a sense of humour as you explore Fraser Island with an eco-accredited guide who lives and loves the island. Fraser Explorer Tours take the hassle out of seeing the world’s largest sand island by managing tides and traffic - leaving you to enjoy the island’s World Heritage wilderness and colourful history in air-conditioned comfort.

Experience Fraser Island’s shifting sandscapes on a 'Two-day One-night’ tour where Aboriginal names like Wanggoolba and Dundonga roll exotically off the tongue. Once aboard you’ll meet like-minded travellers, visit the top natural attractions – including stunning Lake McKenzie and Wanggoolba Creek and cool off in the island’s fresh-water swimming holes - and all in custom-designed, four-wheel-drive coach comfort.

Whether you’ve travelling solo, in a group or with friends, Fraser Explorer Tours offer a fun and relaxing experience for all types of travellers, with a choice of accommodation styles to suit. All rooms have a private bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities.

If English is your second language, we have MP3 guides available in Spanish, Italian, German, Korean and Chinese. Just let our Sales and Reservations team know when you book. These can be picked up from the Ticket Hut with a small, refundable deposit of $20 per device.
