3 Types of Fraser Island Tours

24 November 2014

Fraser Island is the world largest sand island and Australia’s sixth largest island! There is so much to see and do while on Fraser Island, and it’s imperative you pick the right way to experience it! 


Simple and carefree – a guided Fraser Island tour will offer you complete relaxation and ease as your travel around the island. You will be taken around the island on a tour bus/4WD vehicle – where your guide will explain to you your surroundings and stop at the highlights of the island. The majority of these tours will include your meals, as well as your accommodation (if you choose an overnight option). This style of tour is very popular for all styles of travellers; especially older travellers, and families.

Self-Guided - Tag along Safari (4WD)

A very popular option for backpackers, and young at heart travellers – our self-guided tag along style tours are hands-on and fun! You get the chance to be behind the steering wheel and determine your own adventure. Join a group of 6-8 other travellers in your 4WD Safari vehicle, and blast music while you drive on the beach and through the Fraser Island rainforests. The majority of these tours include food and your accommodation – choose between camping, dorm accommodation or private rooms! This is the ultimate adventure option while exploring Fraser Island!

Self Hire

For those looking to experience World Heritage Fraser Island with independence and flexibility, self-hire 4WD vehicle is for you! You will pick up your self-hire 4WD vehicle in either Hervey Bay or Rainbow Beach, board the ferry across to the island and then you are off on your own! Explore the island at your own pace; choosing to maybe spend that extra hour sun tanning at Lake McKenzie. Self-hire is a great option for any style of travellers, and allows for you to explore Fraser Island at your own pace. Choose to spend 1, 2, 3 or more days on Fraser Island.

"We wanted to see Fraser Island for 2 days with our friends. We booked an overnight tour with Travel Freedom, and it was a great trip which explored the main highlights on Fraser. The accommodation in the resort was great for our group as well as we all got to share a room. The guys at Travel Freedom made the entire process easy. Thanks a mill."

"I found Travel Freedom on Google and I booked a Fraser Island day tour from Hervey Bay for my family and I. We had a great time, and the kids loved Lake McKenzie. The food was good for us, and our guide was very experienced. The booking process was very easy, and we received our confirmation very quickly. I recommend Travel Freedom to anyone."

"We loved the tour! John the tour guide was super friendly and made our stay super pleasant and fun! The group in the tour were super nice, it was indeed the perfect fit for us. And of course the island is beautiful and we had a perfect weather. The facilities and the food were above our expectations, I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone."


"Absolutely loved my trip to Fraser Island I had a wonderful time and the tour was very well organised and fun!"


"Rainbow Beach Adventure Company was an excellent service provider. The staff that supervised us was helpful, kind and had a lot of humour. We absolutely loved it.
I personally wrote a very good comment on TripAdvisor and I will recommend them to my friends."


"An amazing trip! Great value and the service was very professional and such helpful staff.
The team that run the tours are very supportive of each other. The accommodation booked was very nice and she kept the same room for our return so we didn’t need to repack at no charge.. excellent service.

Lots of swimming.. relaxed tour and the group got on really well. Our resort on the Island and meals was very pleasant. All went very smoothly. We both enjoyed the level of activity as in and out, walks etc so not just sitting in buses. Highly recommend."
