"We joined the tour in Hervey Bay and enjoyed the ride over to the island on the Ferry. We didn't know what to expect on the tour but were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the day. The guides certainly know a lot about the island, we lucky enough to see dingoes in the natural habitat. Thanks again for a great day"
"The guide was informative and provided a great experience. I loved driving around the island, swimming in Lake Mackenzie, the walk in the forests and the drive on the beach including seeing a dingo. The ship wreck was fascinating and the walk in the creek. A great way to explore Fraser Island."
