What a fantastic day. Chops our tour guide was a wealth of information and kept the day exciting and fun. Lunch was yummy and we weren't left hungry. Thanks again Chops for a great day. Leeanne and Adrian

We selected the half day tour and we were really happy with our decision. We left the jetty at Noosaville at 12.30pm and we were due back at 4.30pm. The weather was great and there were very few canoes or boats in the Everglades so...More

1 day in Fraser Island is not worthy, You spend all the day in the car with bad visibility as it has no big windows. It stops a few minutes at a few locations where many other buses also stop so it is very crowded....More

Fantastic trip from start to finish, we loved the ease of heading off from Noosaville and being transported into the tranquility of the everglades. The BBQ was superb and the guide too. Would recommend this trip to everyone.

I have done 2 everglades tours, one was a christmas party. I thoroughly enjoyed both trips, its a long day out but well worth it, the staff are very helpful and personable. If you are planning a trip to Noosa please do this tour.

Hello, My husband and I will be in Noosa for 5 days from October 25 - 30th. We would like to take a one day Fraser Island tour on the advice of our daughter who did the 3 day tour a number of years ago. We don't want an overnight tour and I'd like to be sure that the journey would not be too taxing on my back. If the seats are comfortable, and I'm not at the very back of the bus, it should be fine. I would also like to know if Lake McKenzie is definitely included at this time of year as she said it was breathtaking. Also, would you pick us up at the Twin Quays Resort? Thanking you in anticipation. Heather

Hi, Most of the reviews are positive however the more negative ones refer to a minimal lunch and vehicles in poor shape. What is your opinion? Also are the washroom breaks or facilities enroute ? Can belongings be left in vehicle? Thanks

Hi, we are going to be in Noosa for about a week in August. We are a couple in our 60s and not super fit as my knees are not terrific! We don't want to miss out though and would love to do a trip to Fraser Island. I feel the day trip would perhaps be a lot to do in a day and maybe look at a 1 night trip. Can you advise if this would be suitable for me. Is there much walking required and where would we be staying overnight? Would you pick up at Hastings street hotels? Thanks, Hazel

Hi Hazel, My preference is the 2 day tour, as we break up the travel from Noosa over two days. We also get to see more of the island and have plenty of time so the tour doesn't feel rushed. As for the walking there are a... More
