54321 This was just what we were hoping for! ???? Exciting adventures on the island and great hotel and food! Murray, our guide made the trip even better with his impressive amount of knowledge about all worth knowing about the island. We can recommend this to anyone who are in shape for a bit of walking. We also did the scenic flight, which unfortunately was a bit disappointing. We do not regret it, but thought it would be more spectacular.

54321 Great experience! One does need to be fit as there is a lot of walking up/down the sand dunes & through bush. Special thanks to our “top” guide Warren - a fund of knowledge about the island and kept the tour moving at a very happy pace. We enjoyed the additional touch of the 15 minute light plane ride so got an overall perspective of the island, and the sands. (So smooth take off and landing on the beach! ) Well worth it. Food was excellent and abundant. Accommodation was clean, spacious and served us well. Enjoy more if you swim at every opportunity! All resort staff were helpful and cheerful. Glad we took the 2 day/1 night tour - so much to do and see.!

54321 Highly recommend!!! Such an amazing tour!! Our tour guide, Dave Dunn was very friendly and very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. An unforgettable experience and great value for money x
Zoe & Terry — 9 March, 2019

54321 My 2day/1night explorer tour of Fraser Island was amazing! I got to see lots of the wildlife including the dingoes and a huge monitor lizard! The scenery was beautiful throughout the tour as we got to see several iconic areas of the island. Our tour guide, Murray, was absolutely brilliant and made my trip! He was very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the island. I don't think there was one questions he couldn't answer, and I asked a lot! Thanks for an unforgettable experience x
Shelley Glasspool — 20 February, 2019

54321 We went on the 2 day Fraser Island Tour with our guide Wayne. It was an absolutely fabulous and unforgettable trip. The organisation was flawless and Wayne managed to keep everybody informed at all times of where we had been, where we were going and how long we had at each place. He always forewarned is when to lotion up, put our swimmers on etc so no time was wasted when we arrived. He was friendly, patient, very funny and hugely knowledgable of the island. We will never forget this trip and it has become another memory on our 8 week road trip of the East Coast of Australia . Thank you so much.
Allison Wright — 5 February, 2019

54321 It was in one word fabulous. We enjoy everything. It was de driver Dave who make our day. Thanks voor all .

43211 The 2 day Fraser Explorer tour was overall a great experience and Fraser Island and all it has to offer were amazing. Our guide Mark was very knowledgable and entertaining and professional. We got to see all the best places, although it was very busy and felt crowded in places. Eurong Resort was old and very basic but clean. There were a few hiccups over the 2 days which did put a dampener on the tour. We had to get the later barge over because it was so busy which eat into our time at Lake Mackenzie, there was then some confusion and miscommunication and a family didn't turn up at the arranged time and resulted in our tour bus all sitting on the bus for an hour at the Lake, turned out they had gone on another bus, so we then were behind and felt rushed through the rest of the day. It was particularly frustrating as we had such little time at Lake Mackenzie. The next day was going well until our bus broke down on the beach and cut short our time at Eli Creek and again there was some confusion as to who was getting what bus back to Eurong and we had to keep checking back to make sure we got on the correct bus. The tour guides however were very good considering the circumstances. It just all felt a bit rushed at each stop, next time we will go at a less busy time and hope to have more time to relax.
Emma Dirckze — 8 January, 2019

54321 The two day tour was absolutely fabulous and I highly recommend. Our tour guide Waz was a awesome guy and really looked after us. We got to see so much of the island in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was amazing and plentiful and while the accommodation was basic it was clean and comfortable. I can’t wait to go again.
Terri Bishop — 21 December, 2018

54321 we had an amazing 2-day tour to Fraser Island! We got to see all important hot spots and sightseeing spots on this island, with enough time to enjoy the mazing nature and wildlife. Our guide, Mark, did an awesome job, kept us informed all the time and also managed to keep the group together! we got much more than we expected1 We absolutely recommend this tour! If you have the chance, take the 2 day trip as it seems to be much more relaxed than the one day trip. Thanks again - especially to Mark!
Anna & Sara — 16 December, 2018

54321 We did the 2-day tour to Fraser Island, and it was absolutely fantastic! We got to see amazing nature and wildlife, and swimming in the lakes on this Island is epic! Our guide, Mark, did an awesome job and made the tour even better! We absolutely recommend this tour! And as other people have mentioned; 1 day would not have been enough on this beautiful Island.

43211 It was a great tour. Imho the itinerary covered all the main spots. Food and accommodation at Eurong Resort were great and among the best we experienced on our multiple tours Down Under. Our tour guide Dave was bloody rippa, very likable and very knowledgable. I would have give 5 starts if the speakers in the bus didnt have such lousy acoustics. It was very hard to understand the several announcements and interestint facts and information about Fraser Island. This would have been avoidable and greatly impaired our experienced since we sadly missed out on a lot of background information.
Dominik T — 2 December, 2018

54321 I did the 2 day tour with my sister and it was simply AWESOME! I've visited heaps of places in Australia and Fraser is, without any doubt, a must. We swam in beautiful lakes and creeks, saw breathtaking views, dingos an other animals. However, the best of all was our guide Mark, who explained us heaps of things, whose sense of humour was contagious and who did this experience unforgetable. Thanks Mark, F***ING LEGEND!
Maite — 30 November, 2018

54321 What a great worries about getting your car stuck in the sand...take the Fraser Explorer bus! Craig, our driver, and Sven our Guide, was passionate, informative and made the whole 2 days fun. So much to need the 2 days....1 day would not be long enough. Accomodation at Eurong Resort was fine...nothing fancy but clean! I would throughly recommend this tour and felt it was reasonably priced too.
Carol Mahoney — 17 November, 2018

54321 Wow what a great 2 day experience on Fraser Island, Warren our tour guide and bus driver was fantastic, so knowledgeable and fun to be with. All sites that we visited were amazing from Champagne Ponds to Eli Creek, Lake McKenzie ( white sand was special) Thanks again Warren
Jan McAndrew — 15 November, 2018

Adi golan — 31 October, 2018

54321 A truly memorable experience. Our guide was highly informed and extremely helpful. The weather could have been better, but the group, with the encouragement of our guide, Warren, made the very best of all the experiences available.
Peter Murphy — 15 October, 2018

54321 We really enjoyed our 2 day Fraser Island Tour. I'm glad we decided to do the 2 day tour, rather than 1 day as it really allowed us to fully explore what Fraser Island has to offer. Our Tour guide Warren was excellent. He had so much knowledge of the area and really kept the group engaged with his interesting stories. Highly recommend this tour.
Jane — 8 October, 2018

54321 Great time. Was here 33 years ago so was happy to see nature still intact. David our guide new his stuff. Definitely having two days gave you more time to take it all in. Recommend, it was great!
Leeanne — 7 October, 2018

54321 Fabulous experience on Fraser Island with Steve our tour guide. We loved Lake McKenzie the best and all the interesting facts and information. Great fun.
Kate — 3 October, 2018

54321 What an awesome 2 days we had. This trip was brilliant due to WARREN our bus driver and guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and very experienced. We sang and had fun. He made our trip great. We experienced so much in 2 days. Very scenic. Saw Dingoes. Swam at Lake McKenzie (amazing place) Champagne pools, Walked through a stunning rainforest Wanggoooba, Indian Head, Lake Wabby, saw an amazing SSMaheno Shipwreck on the beach. Some took the scenic flight over the stunning Rainbow Beach. Overnight accommodation was average but you’re really only paying for the island experience. And what an experience it was. Highly organised and structured to suit the weather and tide. Best trip - highly recommended. Thank you Warren - you rock ????
Valerie Brown — 23 September, 2018

54321 With Mark as our guide, we couldn't have wished for a better adventure on Fraser Island. All the favourite sites were visited and enjoyed but Mark's knowledge of the history of the island and his telling of the indigenous Dreamtime stories really made the island come to life. Food and accommodation was also great. We thoroughly recommend it!
Jill Clifford — 20 September, 2018

54321 Absolutely fantastic 2 day tour with Darren, so informative and great sense of humour. We experienced all the sights and swam in Lake McKenzie. Food was great, they catered so well for gluten free diets. Did not want to leave, highly recommended.
Karen Green — 18 September, 2018

54321 Had an awesome Holiday, very relaxing and Warren definitely made the Tour enjoyable, informative and funny. Would recommend it to everybody.
Andrew Jones — 16 September, 2018

54321 We had an amazing time on this trip. The children (age 12 and 8) loved it too. Our tour guide, Warren, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He was passionate about Fraser Island and did not sound like he had given the information thousands of times before but with enthusiasm and excitement! We saw plenty of the beautiful Island. The food was amazing too. Didn't want to leave!
Dawn Newman — 8 September, 2018

54321 WOW!! What a fantastic tour! Our guide Mark was fantastic. Very ‘bouncy’ but our kids loved it. Thouroughly recommend it.
James Llewellyn Smith — 19 August, 2018

54321 The 2 day Fraser tour was fun, we experienced an amazing tour with our knowledgeable tour guide Murray. We have already recommended this tour to our family and friends.
lisa — 18 August, 2018

54321 Amazing two day tour! Warren was a perfect and funny guide/driver! Champagne pools were amazing! We saw dolphins and whales very near!!
Enric — 3 August, 2018

54321 Awesome trip! It was an awesome trip to stunningly beautiful Fraser Island. Our guide Warren was doing a great job in telling us lots of things. He was also really friendly and funny and made sure we had a great experience on the island. I would always do that tour again.
Julia — 14 July, 2018

54321 We had an absolutely wonderful 2 day adventure on Fraser Island! Our Tour Guide, John, was very enthusiastic and knows a lot about the island. We've seen dingos, whales and even a snake! At first we had to get used to the wobbly roads but it was definitely worth it! The people in our group were from all ages and from all over the world. The food was good and we had plenty. Would absolutely recommend this tour!
Anouk — 9 July, 2018

54321 Wife & I recently spent 2 days on Fraser; 2day/1night Fraser Explorer Tour, wonderful experience, covered a lot of the island in a 4WD bus, good flexibility on time at the various locations of interest, journey well split between riding in the bus & walking to sites of interest - was really impressed with Murray our guide - his extensive knowledge of the island and how hard he worked on behalf of all of us on the bus - very friendly & approachable - wonderful experience, highly recommend the company & the staff. Rob W - 2 July 2018
Rob Wardell — 2 July, 2018

54321 My wife and I recently did the 2Day/1Night Fraser Explorer Tour. Our tour guide/4WD bus driver Waz Man (Warren) was fantastic! He was knowledgeable, funny and a great driver. The tour was very well balanced with walks and safe swimming. Our accommodation, Eurong Resort, was clean and comfortable, friendly and obliging staff, but a little jaded and could do with some TLC. Food on the tour was plentiful!
victor skladnev — 10 June, 2018

54321 Hello everyone .. I had been on a 2 day tour to Fraser Island with Adventure free tours. It was a great experience. David, Our tour guide was joyful and friendly person. Eurong resort was good but not upto the mark. Lake Mecanzie was the best place to visit and swim. Don't forget your swim wear and slip on. There a bit of walking too so you require good boots too. Overall its a place worth visiting.
Yusuf Bharmal — 8 May, 2018

54321 Steve was amazing. Very flexible because of weather. Very specific. Very knowledgeable about history and culture. Good sense of humour. Loved every minute except for climbing up the sand!
Pauline wakelin — 30 March, 2018

54321 Wow! Dave was an expert tour guide! So much info on the island and great to know he has all the skills required to tackle those sandy roads! He made the tour fabulous with his experience and humour! The Island is fantastic such a privilege! Would recommend it to anyone ????
Debs & Steve — 19 January, 2018

54321 We were an advanced aged group of 3 - 2 from UK- did 2 day Fraser Island Tour! Day 1 spent in the rain Forest. Torrential rain - no better way to see a rain forest - some plants only bloom in the rain “we saw them”Murray our guide was so knowledgeable & patient all day! We 3 were dressed for the weather thanks to forward information. Day 2 - mostly Sunshine - spent on 75 mile beach! Did the 20 minute light plane flight over the island. Time to take in everything there was to see & know the history thanks to Murray a true history buff & gentleman. The accommodation at Eurong & food measured up. My English friends will talk about the magic of the Tour/Fraser Island forever.
Margaret Watson — 27 November, 2017

54321 Tour was fantastic, Butch is incredibly knowledgeable, funny and friendly. The only downside was the short time spent at Lake McKenzie and lack of shade at Eli Creek. Perhaps for future tours, a gazebo next to the bus would be a good idea for having lunch and getting some respite from the sun. Apart from that, I loved every minute of it. Thanks for a great two days.
Fiona Schwegler — 31 January, 2017

54321 I had a great experience. The crew was funny and with good knowledge, and the places visited are wonderful. Thank you
Sonia — 29 December, 2016

54321 Fantastic day out exploring Fraser from the fun ride of a 4wd bus. Saw loads of the island and the guide was so knowledgeable with lots of interesting facts and great stories about the island. Highly recommended as a day trip!

Alfred Abderhalden — 30 November, 2014

54321 Well organise and informative trip with a great crew and guests. The beauty astounded me! Everything from the barge crossing to seeing Lake McKenzie was fantastic. Thanks guys.
Brittany Quattro — 15 October, 2014

54321 Truly amazing from start to finish, our guide Gerrad was fantastic, I couldn't have got to the top of Lake Wabby without his encouragement and advice about water and hat! This tour was worth every penny - memories that will stay with me a lifetime! Thank you
Erica Helen Simons — 2 October, 2013

54321 Thanks for the wonderful tour. We had a great guide who was knowledgeable, helpful and most importantly fun! The food, company, sights and bus were all great – nothing to complain about!
