An interesting trip, our guide Paul was friendly and knowledgeable although at times it would have helped to know timings between locations. The tents at night were extremely hot and there were differing messages between what was provided and not - ie. Pillow not provided although some literature did not highlight this and sleeping bags were provided although some literature stated there may be a rental fee for them. There was also an indication that there were free cold shower or hot showers for a fee - this was incorrect, only with a $2 coin could you have a shower. From our experience travelling with the same car for the duration of the trip would have saved a lot of hassle and made for a more enjoyable trip, as we got placed in a car on the 2nd day that were unhappy about loosing driving time. The island is big and as a result you spend a great deal of time in the cars which at times was good fun but if cramped in the very back of a hot truck with no air was definitely not the most enjoyable! Exploring the island was incredible however, and food provided was great - just a shame that the experience was dampened by lack of sleep in tents and unhappy people upset about car arrangements!

This is one of the most unique experiences you will ever have and definitely never forget. Everyone loved driving the cars and we all had the best time exploring the island. Our tour guide (who’s name I can’t remember) was fantastic and was able to answer all our questions about the island, it’s wildlife and it’s past which we loved hearing! He was chill and had a laugh with us all. We visited multiple different spots including lake McKenzie, eli creek, champagne pools and the shipwreck. There were another couple I can’t remember the names of and also the little village on our middle day when we could buy lunch/snacks from the shop and cafe. All meals are provided and were pretty decent. I really do hate camping however, the campsite included proper toilets, showers and a full kitchen which for me made the experience much more pleasant which I understand not all of the tour companies on the island do! Everywhere seemed pretty clean which was also a bonus. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who has the opportunity to go and encourage doing it with Dingo’s.
