Tour Info:

Ready to visit the world’s largest sand island and explore it by 4WD? Fraser Island is one of our favourite adventure experiences and you’ll love everything that this incredible island has to offer! There’s no such thing as roads on Fraser and you’ll be swapping the rainy dual carriageways of home for the 75 mile beach highway and will be driving along the beach and tracks through the forest, it’s an experience like no other and this will certainly get your adrenaline going. The island is super remote and very few people actually live here, there’s incredible wildlife to see, look out for the island’s resident dingos, snakes, spiders, goanas and whales (during the migration season).

Note: This option you will be staying in camping accomodation {bring a hoodie RatPackers}

This 4WD tag along tour will show you the islands best locations and you’ll be shown around by legendary experienced guides! You’ll see all of the islands highlights including the crystal clear Lake McKenzie, tea tree Lake Wabby, float down the natural lazy river Eli Creek, visit indian head to take in the views or chill in the bubbling champagne pools and see the historic maheno shipwreck.

This 3 day 2 night tour with Nomads is awesome, we love this tour because it is full of good vibes, a group of legendary backpackers, a true ozzie guide and you get to see the whole island! You’ll have an awesome time cruising around in the 4WD’s, these are self drive so if you’re over 21 and have had your license for more than a year you can be the driver and experience driving along the beach, and what road trip is complete without epic tunes? Be the DJ and create the ultimate island soundtrack!

All your meals are provided on this tour and you’ll all chip in and help out with the cooking and cleaning – see it as ‘4wd team bonding’! You’ll be treated to epic hot meals at the end of the day and a picnic lunch each day in some unreal spots! And what better way to wrap up an awesome day of cruising around a remote island than hitting up the Eurong Resort Bar?!

And in true RatPack styleeeeeee – this one is an awesome deal with Nomads hostel in Noosa for pre and post night accommodation, perfect if you wanna chill in Noosa for a few days too!


Arrive to Noosa and check in at Nomads Noosa at 44 Noosa Drive . You must arrive before 6pm to attend a compulsory pre-tour briefing held at Nomads KB’s Bar (Nomads Noosa) where you meet your fellow travellers and learn more about your Fraser Island tour. Safety is paramount and this is when you find out about do’s and don’ts, driving tips, and nominated drivers, everyone will be required to complete a liability and insurance form. All passengers are required to attend the briefing to be allowed to travel to the Island the next day

DAY 1 – The group departs Noosa by bus at 7am and head towards Rainbow Beach ( 1.5 – 2 hours drive). Please be waiting for the bus at Nomads reception by 6:45am. If you miss the bus you will miss the tour. Please ensure you have checked out of your room and have both your Fraser luggage and your main luggage with you.

We then take a barge from Inskip Point and land at Hook Point on the Southern tip of Fraser Island approximately 10 mins later. Depending on the weather, and the tide your guide will assess whether it is safe to travel on the beach or if we need to select an alternative route to our next destination – The Southern Lakes. We first stop at Lake Boomanjin for a swim and a walk, then continue on to Lake Birrabeen where we have our lunch (Wraps and salad). After a relaxing break, it is time for a rainforest track to walk off our lunch and explore the Island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too!

There are a number of walkways, and a short circular route that runs up one side of the creek and down the other. From there we head up to the famous Maheno Shipwreck, the most famous of the Fraser Island wreck driven ashore during a cyclone in 1935. From there we continue north to Coloured Sands comprising of 72 different colours of sand. Next stop is the Pinnacles,a natural wonder of Fraser Island
made up of multicoloured sand cliffs.
