In October we had a fantastic journey to Fraser Island. Our tour guide Peter was just fantastic! Not only he could drive the sandy roads of Fraser Island (safe but like a racing driver= lots of fun), he knows a mit about the plants, the animals and the stories of the indigenous people. It was a great day out which we highly recommend. Thanks Peter for this great experience!

Well worth the money. Took daughter and granddaughter with my wife.
My wife gets car sick, so was fortunate enough to sit beside our driver/guide for the whole trip.
We were lucky enough to see whales and dingoes on the beach. Our driver/guide knew all of the history and geography of the Island. Lunch was good, with a variety of salads, perhaps a better selection of desert would be appreciated. A well organised day, with no mishaps. Would recommend this tour to all.

This was a long day with a lot of bumpy rides on the beach and in the rainforest but it was a great tour. We had a lovely ferry ride to the island. Spent more time than I expected riding on the 75 mile beach. We spent time at the creek, would have liked a little longer there. I decided to do the plane ride on the beach . It was not too expensive 80 dollars. It was a great experience to see the island from the air and see sharks in the water and take off and land on the beach. The lunch was 3 courses and had lots to choose from - very good. The other creek which was in the rain forest was very serene and peaceful. Lastly swimming in Lake Mackenzie was great. It so clear and not cold. It was really refreshing. Lastly Butch the guide was friendly and was so full of information I do not know where he stores it all. He drove well, gave people a chance to ride in the front of the bus if they wanted too. He took photos of you if you wanted him too. He also showed us a Guyana he had found climbing on a tree. He imparted lots of information to us. Well done driving and talking Bu5ch. I would definitely recommend this trip

Fabulous day out, I would highly recommend this trip. It rained all day on our day trip and although this disappointed us it did not spoil the day. Our driver mark was the best.
