Here are the itineraries for each tour: 

 

Frasers on Rainbow

The tour starts the day before you head out to Fraser Island where the compulsory safety briefing occurs at 4pm and gives you a comprehensive overview on safety features whilst touring the island, along with some useful hints and tips on driving on the soft sand. This briefing lasts for approximately 1.5 hours and this is when you will be split into your vehicle groups and get the chance to meet other travellers who will be touring with you.

 

The morning of departure is a pretty hectic time, with excitement everywhere! We will again split you up into your groups and ask you to work together in checking off all your food to make sure it is all there before you go. You will pack your food into the eskies, alcohol into cool boxes, do a full vehicle inspection - including checking all camping and cooking equipment is provided, and then do a full driver briefing outlining the most important aspects of driving on soft sand and how to use the gears. Then it's off you go!!

 

Due to tide times and changing conditions, the itinerary of the tour always changes in terms of where you go and on what days, but know that the experience of the lead driver will ensure you get to see the most important and beautiful sights on Fraser Island. Some of these will include Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby, Eli Creek, Champagne Pool, Indian Head and The Maheno Shipwreck, to name but a few. You will only set up camp the one time and travel back to this area every evening so you can sit down, relax with a drink and cook your evening meals without the hassle of having to relocate every time.

 

On the third and final day you will arrive back into Rainbow Beach approximately around 3.30pm (depending on tides), where you can enjoy a few drinks and some food with friends at our on-site bar and restaurant. Our bar hosts nightly entertainment with live music (Generally, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays). Take advantage of our happy hour prices and our $6 meals daily from 6-8pm.

The tour will start in the mid afternoon, with everyone meeting at the Abel Point Marina at Airlie Beach at 2:00pm. This tour is perfect for fun loving backpackers, who want to meet some like minded travellers with an adventurous spirit also wishing to enjoy exploring the islands in style. 

 

The tour will give you the opportunity to experience all of the highlights around the Whitsundays including the breathtaking Whitehaven Beach, Blue Pearl Bay, Mantaray Bay and Hill Inlet lookout. The tour will be taking place on a beautiful Catamaran, which is perfect for any travellers concerned about seasickness, as the boat is very stable.
