Fraser Island is one of the biggest bucket list items on the East Coast of Australia and there’s no better way to see it than a 4WD tag along tour.
This trip with the team from Dingos Fraser Island, departs every Monday and Thursday, spanning 3 days and 2 nights – where you’ll soak up all the amazing experiences that the largest sand island in the world has to offer.
From the crystal clear waters of Lake Mackenzie and the refreshing Champagne Pools to the magnificent sand dunes of Lake Wobby and the views from Indian Head Lookout – this trip packs in all the top highlights and more.
At night you can kick back under a blanket of stars, camping in true adventurer style.
But best of all you get to cruise along the beach in a 4×4 – which is an epic experience in itself as Fraser Island is home to some stunning beach highways.
…and don’t forget to keep a watchful eye out for the local dingos too!
