The Best Fraser Island Tours for Seniors
Single-day or overnight tours onboard an airconditioned 4WD bus allow passengers to travel in comfort and style across Fraser Island and are the perfect way to travel for seniors. For the most comfortable experience, we recommend that you choose a seat at the front of the bus for your tour and then sit back and relax in airconditioned comfort as your guide navigates through Fraser Island’s pristine wilderness.
Have you ever seen a dingo in the wild? Well, you’re bound to see a few on Fraser Island which is home to the purest dingo population in the world. While a day tour is perfect for those short on time and will visit highlights such as 75 Mile Beach and Lake McKenzie, an overnight tour will allow you more time to explore and include extra areas such as Central Station, the S.S. Maheno Shipwreck, Eli Creek, Lake Wabby and the Pinnacles.
Please Note: Unfortunately, due to the nature of Fraser Island’s rugged terrain, Fraser Island tours are not suitable for people with existing back or neck problems or those with limited mobility. If you have concerns, please ask your travel expert for more information. Here are our recommendations for the best Fraser Island tours for seniors!
