Do you cater for any special dietary requirements?
We like to keep our guests happy and healthy at all times! We offer alternative options for those that suffer from wheat, gluten or dairy intolerance and cater to vegetarian and vegan requirements easily and of course at no extra cost.
Is alcohol provided with meals?
Alcohol is not provided on tour sorry. It’s enough funding our own drinking habits let alone yours ;) hehe. You are welcome to bring along any refreshments you like though and we’ll provide the ice and eski’s. We strongly recommend you purchase any beers you want before the tour, as we can’t guarantee any stops and the bottle shops on the Fraser Island are very expensive! Please bring only plastic bottles or cans as glass bottles can easily break on the way up to Fraser Island due to the rough conditions.
Is there a lot of walking involved on tour? Do I need to bring hiking boots?
There is some walking, but not a massive amount. The longest walk is roughly 45 minutes (oneway), at a relaxed pace so you can enjoy the scenery. We do recommend comfortable footwear, but hiking boots are not 100% necessary so if you don’t have any don’t worry.
Is Fraser Island dangerous?
Along with its natural beauty, Fraser Island also has some natural dangers and if you don’t know what your doing it can’t be an unforgettable experience for the wrong reasons. However, a guided tour is definitely the safest way to see the wonders of Fraser Island and all our guides are fully educated about Australia’s wildlife and what to look out for to keep you safe. They are also very experienced drivers, specialising in 4WD driving on rough terrain and all have current certificates, licenses and first aid skills.
You need to be prepared for all weather conditions when visiting Fraser Island so it’s always a good idea to bring:
A small backpack
Warm jumper and a raincoat
1 litre refillable water bottle
Insect repellent (Nov-Mar)
…and any alcohol or snacks you may want (there are shops on the island, but they are very expensive!)
