3 Day 2 Night K’gari Safari Self Drive 4WD Tour
From $629pp

Perfect for the adventurous traveller, K’Gari Safari Adventure Tours will ensure you travel in style as you explore the World Heritage listed island of K’Gari.

Delve into the beautiful sights this epic place has to offer, with experienced driver guides and comfortable Safari Style permanent tents to enjoy.

You’ll want to savour every moment on this incredibly diverse island as you visit some of the most sought after sights and locations in Australia. Just one of the highlights will be driving along the amazing 75 Mile Beach, tag along style. Known as the island’s highway, with colourful sand cliffs on one side and the exquisitely blue ocean on the other, this may just be one of the most exciting drives you experience. Be ready to take a dip in one of the many refreshing swim spots the island has to offer, from Lake Mckenzie’s crystal clear water and white silica sand, to the natural current that lets you flow down Eli Creek, to the beautiful rocky landscape and ocean view of the Champagne Pools. Stunning rainforests, breathtaking sand dunes, and scenic bush walks will leave you wanting to stay here forever.

3 full days on the island ensures you have more than enough time to really take in the sights everywhere you go, making the most of your time on the island. At the end of every day, enjoy a Dingo safe camp with delicious food, a campfire, a fun team and awesome fellow travellers to wind down with. Your 4 person Safari style tents all have proper beds, comfy mattresses, and fresh linen to ensure a good night’s rest before another day of adventuring. This tour is perfect for the traveller who enjoys a fun, chilled out social vibe, looking to make new friends and incredible new memories.

Start your trip off the right way by including pre and post tour accommodation at Nomads Noosa for an amazing rate – the perfect hostel to meet and greet your new tour group before your trip. Here you will attend your K’Gari safety briefing, store your luggage while on the trip, and enjoy your time in Noosa, whether it’s a fun night out or chilling on the beautiful beach.

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?

The campsite is set up in 4 person tents with beds, comfortable mattresses, pillows, and linen included. A general store, amenities block with hot showers and flushing toilets are all surrounded by a dingo-fence. The beach is a short walk away for a tranquil sunrise or sunset moments.

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.
