3 Day 2 Night Island Expeditions Fraser Island Self Drive 4WD Tour
From $579pp (Online Only)

Sometimes palm trees and beach side pools just don’t cut it. If eco-friendly beach camping, traditional Aussie BBQ’s, and a couple of drinks at sunset is your kind of vibe, then stick around and find out everything you need to know about Island Expeditions.

Tag-a-long tours allow solo travellers and groups of friends to band together to travel around K’gari with absolute ease. You’ll travel in a vehicle driven convoy led by your guides. Good guides can be hard to come by, but luckily, Island Expeditions aren’t short of a few Aussie bushmen who love nothing more than showing their beautiful backyard to adventure seekers from far and wide. Fraser Island’s 75-mile beach will be your highway to the highlights. Here, your guide will navigate you around planes landing on the beach, shark fishermen casting out on the shoreline, and the ever surprising tides that rise and fall every six hours.

Lake Mckenzie, Maheno Shipwreck, and Champagne Pools are among just a handful of the highlights you’ll see on the trip. Being able to spend 3 full days allows you the perfect amount of time to get around to each place without having to check your stopwatch every 15 minutes.

Though K’gari does offer up some pretty challenging terrain, it’s not like we’re asking you to cross The Sahara. With a bit of guidance, you’ll be just fine. Beach Camping. Off-road 4WD’s. Incredible nature. New friends. That’s pretty special. Nomads Noosa is the perfect base to start and finish your tour. Here you will need to check-in and meet the rest of your group so why not stay a night or two? All included on this tour, the crew at Nomads Noosa will give you the best bang for your buck, whether it be you are looking for a fun night out or a cruisy tour around town. For more information, check out our blog where one of out team spent 3 Days on Fraser Island with Palace Adventure / Island Expeditions

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I leave my backpack and belongings whilst I am on K’gari?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. On the morning of your tour you will be meeting at Nomads Hostel in Noosa, where they have luggage storage rooms for you to store your larger luggage while you take your overnight bag on tour.

Is travel insurance required?

Queensland is subject to cyclones and flash flooding. Sometimes roads are closed, making it impossible to reach Rainbow Beach, Noosa, or the Island. If the Island is deemed unsafe Queensland National Parks can close K’gari. The Island is remote and it can be very expensive if you need to leave in the event of an emergency and for these reasons we highly recommend Travel Insurance.

World Nomads travel insurance policies offer coverage for more than 150 activities. Get a quote, make a claim, or buy or extend your policy while on the road.

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travelers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.

Where do we sleep on K’gari?

Island Expeditions has an eco-certified campground set in an epic location right next to the beach. All gear will be provided (2 person tents, sleeping bags and pillows) you just rock up and your amazing guides will sort out everything else. The camp also has a dingo-fence around the campsite so they won’t come and say hello whilst you’re having a BBQ.

Can I drive on K'gari?

Yes! You can drive on K’gari if:
– You are 21 years of age with 2 years of driving experience.
– You hold a valid driving license.

If your driver’s license is not written in full English it must be accompanied by an international driver’s license. No photocopies will be accepted.

I don’t have a driving license, can I still do the tour?

Absolutely you can still do the tour! There is always room for a navigator, a comedian, a DJ and a photographer. If you don’t wanna take on these responsibilities, that’s cool too, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Will there be toilets and showers?

Toilets? Of course.
Whilst you will be getting a truly authentic Aussie experience, you won’t be made to go in the bushes…
Showers? No way.
We advise you to leave the Pantene Pro-V at home! You will be swimming in crystal clear freshwater lakes daily. Natures best bathing experience!
