DRIVING ON FRASER ISLAND:
4WDriving around Fraser Island is heaps of fun and the highlight of the trip for many. There is no need to stress about navigating the beach or knowing all of the 4WD techniques - all you have to do is follow your guides wheel tracks and simple instructions. All our vehicles are automatic and constant 4WD, so you can relax and take in the scenery.
You are eligible to drive our Drop Bear 4WD if you are over 21 years of age, you passed your drivers license more than 12 months ago, and you have a full, clean license.
