If you are going on a 1 day guided tour you are looking at an 11 hour day from pick up to drop off at your accommodation.
There is no half day tour options due to the size of Fraser Island. If you have limited time I would suggest doing a Remote Fraser Island tour or Lake McKenzie’s day tour
We suggest taking with you, your hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, camera, snacks and drinks/water.
If your tour involves swimming then your swimmers, towels and maybe a change of clothes.
For cruises I would also suggest taking a jacket incase you get cold.
If a tour option has a pick up and drop off option it will be able when you complete a booking. Most of the pick up locations are motels or caravan park.
If you don’t want to be picked up from in-town, you can be picked up from the shops out at River Heads.
Address for River Head Shops: 52-54 Ariadne St, River Heads QLD 4655
Whale watching is between mid July until mid October.
The difference between the 1 day tours is the type of vehicle/ group size you are in and the type of lunch you get.
The sizes can be between 4 people up to 38 people.
The 2 day tour options could be to the type of accommodation you are staying in and to the places you visit.
The 2 day Explorer tour options haves you styling in a motel style accommodation and you also get to visit Champagne Pool and Indian Heads. Whereas the tag along tours is a camping style accommodation.
All tours operate rain or shine, except in the case of extreme weather. If it is an extreme weather condition then you will be contacted and a refund or a credit will be supplied.
Unfortunately there is no tour that offers this. If you are interested in taking your own vehicle to Fraser and wanting the best experience I would suggest joining some facebook groups of people who go there regularly.
We suggest doing Fraser Island from Hervey Bay as it is closer and it gives you the best chance to experience the most of Fraser Island since you have less inland travel time.
If you are doing a tour from Sunshine Coast, you may not have enough time to visit the high end of Fraser Island. However if you are limited on time then going from Sunshine Coast will still give you the chance to see the world famous Lake McKenzie.
As of May 2022 all tours are back at their full capacity therefore there is no social distancing in the vehicles and masks are no mandatory.
If you have concerns about being in a large group then we suggest booking a smaller group tour option or wearing masks whilst on the tours.
All government vaccination requirements will be required if applicable. At this point in time you do not need any vaccinations to go on a tour.
