"This trip was so much fun from start to finish! Dingos, shipwrecks, rainforest, freshwater springs, 4x4’s on the beach, and too many other things to list! Would do it all again tomorrow if I could. Awesome hostel in Hervey Bay, and really nice campsite right next to the beach on Fraser. Our guide Tony was fantastic, and showed us everything there is to see on the island. He and the rest of the staff at Palace made everything so incredibly easy and fun. All the equipment, the jeeps, the tents, the outdoor kitchen, and bathrooms, were all really well looked after. It is camping on Fraser, but with the covered tents, kitchen, tables, and toilets, you’re not far off from “glamping.” Would highly recommend heading out with these guys if you want a great experience on Fraser Island."

"We had the wonderful Denny who was super friendly and got on with the whole group. He was very knowledgeable about the island and managed to lead the group and get everyone excited without being patronising."
