I can’t see how that would work. It’s too far away, you’d spend most of the day getting there and back. You could fly up to Jervey Bay, stay overnight and do a day tour from there the following day.
To put it in to context, it’s a distance of 285km, so almost 7 hours would be spent driving there and backEdited: 14 January 2018, 01:00
If no car then yes, from mr google, there are day tours ex Brisbane - just google away - for example
That day tour is a heck of a lot of time spent on a bus and very little time on the island.
Seriously, why arent you spending time on the Sunshine Coast? Some of the most beautiful beaches in Aus and you are missing them?
A bit more information would be very helpful.
+1 for all posts above.
>> Not sure why Brisbane is the closest you will be to Fraser Island ? Won't you be driving through Noosa or Hervey Bay on way north (I assume you are in a hire car as you say 4 weeks for trip) ? << if you have a car, and going from Sydney to Cairns are you driving of bussing?
Even if you're bussing, do a Fraser Island tour from Hervey Bay.
Your priority is Fraser Island, not getting to and from, you will waste a lot of time if you catch a tour from anywhere other than Rainbow Beach or Hervey Bay.

Thanks for your replies.
We are mainly travelling to each location by flying. So we are in Brisbane for a few days then flying to Prosperine for the Whitsundays. We aren’t having a hire car until our time in Cairns. I have had a look at flights from Brisbane to Hervey Bay, hoping we could fly in in the morning and get straight on a trip, however the earliest flight lands in HB after most trips have started 🙄 thinking it’s going to have to be the bus journey on tourstogo. It’s an early start, leaving Brisbane at 6am but we do get to stop at Noosa and Rainbow beach as well as see some of the main highlights of Fraser Island.
What tours are you looking at, can you provide a link?
And how long are you in Brisbane, and Is there any chance of hiring a car in Brisbane and staying 2 nights in Hervey Bay, and catching a full day tour to Fraser Island from there?
So how did your brood go out in western Qld SB :o)))
