    Find out why the Aboriginal people named Fraser Island K’Gari (paradise) on your full-day tour from Hervey Bay.

    Get an early start with pickup at a central meeting point, then catch the ferry to Fraser Island. Upon arrival, travel in an air-conditioned 4WD coach across the rough roads and sandy beaches of this World Heritage-listed sand island.

    Among the highlights, visit picture-perfect Lake McKenzie to take a dip in its clear water or lounge on its white–sand beach. Admire the crystal clear waters of Wanggoolba Creek, located in Central Station, the former headquarters for the island's timber industry. Walk through a rain forest valley with ancient king ferns, towering ghost gum, and pine trees.

    On Seventy-Five Mile Beach, drive down the sandy beach and look for birds of prey and migrating humpback whales (July–November). An optional Fraser Island scenic flight is available there (own expense). The coach meets the plane when it lands further down the beach.

    Stop at two iconic destinations: the colored sand cliffs of the Pinnacles and the Maheno shipwreck—wrecked during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935. Hear from your guide about local aboriginal legends and the geology behind the technicolor sand formations. Throughout the day, your guide shares informative commentary about the history, flora, and fauna of the island.

    Pull into a beach resort for a tasty buffet lunch and catch the ferry back to River Heads in the late afternoon. Your tour ends with drop-off in Hervey Bay.

    I had a great day. Butch was like an encyclopaedia and full of knowledge. The memories l have taken away will stay with me for ever. The scenery was some of the most beautiful l have seen. I only have one complaint that at no time was any water given to refill bottles. I'm glad the weather wasn't hot or we might of had some dehydrated people.

    The weather was not kind to us on the day, but the tour guide certainly left us with many fond memories. The whole group were totally blown away with 'Butch'. His knowledge, awareness, courtesy & driving ability were simply outstanding. Employees like him are priceless. K'gari Explorer Tours are definitely a 'must do' experience when on the Fraser Coast.

    We had a very enjoyable day. Steve our tour guide was a bit of a character, very knowledgeable on the history of the island and an amazing driver. I was very chuffed in being allowed to sit in front with Steve part of the way.

    Very impressed with our day trip to k’gari. We were picked up from Harvey bay at 7:30 and dropped back at 18:30. The transfers were stress free and the ferry very enjoyable. Our guide Steve had an impressive amount of knowledge about the island and made the whole day enjoyable and comfortable. Lunch was buffet style with fish and meat options with rice and pasta. There was also soup and salad. We were blown away by the beauty of the island and impressed with how much we got to see in just a one day trip Would thoroughly recommend this trip! Advice to potential bookers - the day is quite long and you spend a lot of the day driving in the 4WD between destinations. We enjoyed this part of the trip as for us it added to the experience. But could understand why for some it would lot suit.
