3 Day 2 Night Fraser Island Tag Along Safari ( Departs Rainbow Beach)
Your tour starts from the day before you head out to Fraser Island, the compulsory safety briefing occurs at 2.00pm the day prior and gives you a comprehensive overview on safety features whilst touring the island along with some useful hints and tips on driving on soft sand. This briefing lasts for approximately 1.5 hours and this is when you will be split into your vehicle groups and get the chance to meet other travellers who will be touring with you.
The morning of departure is a pretty hectic time, with excitement everywhere, we will again split you up into your groups and ask you to work together in checking off all your food to make sure it is all there before you go. You will pack your food into the eskies, alcohol into cool boxes, do a full vehicle inspection including checking all camping and cooking equipment is provided and then do a full driver briefing outlining the most important aspects of driving on soft sand and how to use the gears. Then it’s off you go!!
Due to tide times and changing conditions, the itinerary of the tour will forever change in terms of where you go, on what days but know that the experience of the lead driver will ensure you get to see the most important and beautiful sights on Fraser Island. Some of these should include Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby, Eli Creek, Champagne Pool, Indian Head and The Maheno Shipwreck to name but a few. You will only set up camp the one time and travel back to this area every evening so you can sit down, relax with a drink and cook your evening meals without the hassles of having to relocate every time.
On the third and final day you will arrive back into Rainbow Beach approximately around 3.30pm (depending on tides) where you can enjoy a few drinks and some food with friends at our on-site bar and restaurant. Our bar hosts nightly entertainment with everything from live music (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), Karaoke and party games with awesome prize giveaways. Take advantage of our happy hour prices (We actually serve PINTS) and our $10 belly buster meals daily from 6-8pm.

Try your hand at sailing, our friendly crew will show you the ropes or just sit back and relax! Once the vessel has reached its destination you will enjoy a freshly prepared dinner, then some ‘get to know you’ games before bedtime.
You will wake up at our stunning Whitehaven Beach or Hill Inlet and enjoy an early morning breakfast while you take in the scenery. You will be dropped off at at the beach to enjoy a bush walk, fun in the sun and a paddle in the water if you choose. Lunch will be prepared on your return and Tongarra will then sail north so you can take a well-earned snorkel and swim.
The shallow, clear blue waters of the Whitsundays are the ideal place for snorkelling, so be prepared to witness some spectacular underwater scenery.
