There are three trips on the East Coast that you need to plan in advance if you want to visit. They are Fraser Island, Whitsundays & The Great Barrier Reef.

The reason these three locations are a must when it comes to booking a trip is down to a few factors. Availability is the biggest reason to pre-book as the best-rated most affordable trips don’t depart every day, for this reason, tours get booked out 3 – 4 weeks in advance.

For the Great Barrier Reef and The Whitsundays, you need a boat to visit these areas. For obvious reasons, not many people travel with their own super yacht/sailing vessel. For this reason, a tour is a MUST : )

As for Fraser Island, you need a 4×4 offroad vehicle to get around on the island. It works out WAY more affordable to do what is called an organized tag-along tour. This is when a company provides you and a group of BackPackers with a jeep and a tour guide and you are good to GO!

Check out the tours for these areas on our Book a Tour tab and you can select the most suitable vibe.
