      Visit to K’gari 27/2/20/4
      A fantastic day exploring the island with Hayden His balance of input was just right My only concern was visitors with bad backs. The crossing of the island in the bus was incredibly jarring and anyone with lumbar issues could have done additional damage thankfully this was not us. Absolutely loved the day but would have to have heard more about the indigenous land owners and was surprised no acknowledgement was given to them as I hear that so frequently when I visit Australia

      Learnt things about the island and shared the day with a friendly crowd of people. That’s important when travelling solo
      I had a great trip yesterday to the beauty spots of K’gari. Grant was our driver on the 4x4 bus and took us on short walks through the forest telling us about the history of the island and the forest. He took us to lake Mackenzie for a freshwater swim and later drove us along the 75 mile beach to the Maheno shipwreck. He was very knowledgeable and obviously loved working on the island. It was a good day out. Thanks Grant.

      Unbelievable trip, Keith was brilliant, a good laugh throughout the day and very informative. Got to see beautiful sights across the island including some of the local wildlife! Would recommend to anyone interested in exploring the k’gari

      Must do trip!
      The whole trip was amazing, what a beautiful island! And Keith just made it 10x better. His knowledge on the island and the history of the place was so interesting and it really felt so educational without taking away the fun of the trip. Lake Mackenzie is a place I’ll never forget and the time we had allocated for each place was more than enough. Honestly can’t fault the trip whatsoever. Thank you Keith!

      Wonderful place and good guide !
      Thank you Andrew for the visit! He knows everything about the Island and its history. You ride through the jungle for approximately an hour to go to the famous ship wreck. Then you walk in a very nice savage creek before going to the lunch for a buffet at the hotel. After that you have a little walk in the forest and you finish with a swim in the lake McKenzie which is a peace of paradise. Great organisation during all day !

      An excellent, fun and informative day.
      We had a great day. Loved Lake Mackenzie. Blair’s guiding was excellent as was his driving. It would have been lovely to visit the champagne pools too. Felt the hotel should have provided more information on where to meet and what to bring.

      Wonderful day in Kurt's hands
      Wonderful day with Kurt as our amusing and delightfully Aussie Tour Guide. He is a perfect blend of Kgari knowledge and experience, humour, personal experience, honesty and soul. He kept me listening with his quirky, dry, realness and genuine happiness. I felt sorry for the foreigners who probably couldn't understand him and enjoy what he brings to this experience. Highlights were Eli Creek, Central Station and Lake McKenzie. Keep up the enthusiasm Kurt, give him a pay rise KET!. I will definitely recommend friends to get on your bus.

      Incredible experience
      The trip was amazing probably the best thing we’ve done on our trip so far. Our tour guide Keith was brilliant so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, made the whole day really enjoyable. We got to see all the main places, lake McKenzie being our favourite with how bright blue the water was! The only thing we wish is we’d brought rings to float down Eli Creek. Lunch was very yummy and had lots of options both hot and cold to choose from at the resort. Overall the day was fantastic and we got to learn so much about the island and people who inhabited it before us which was all very interesting!

      Outstanding Guide.
      Keith, our Guide made an instantly favourable impression with his friendly greeting. Getting the trip underway later than he would have liked ( due to an admin problem out of his control) Keith did what all good guides should do, he patiently sorted out the issue, apologised to the rest of the party, and cracked on undeterred. Before boarding the ferry for the short 10 minute crossing, we were given a comprehensive safety briefing, as to what we could expect travelling on rough tracks and sandy beaches. Suffice to say it’s a fun journey! His commentary was a good mix of the factual, interspersed with some jokey observations. When approached, Keith always had time to give detailed answers. The day trip packed a lot in, including a more than adequate lunch stop in the cafeteria. A surprise, on Keith’s recommendation, was the opportunity to take a 15 min flight, uniquely taking off and landing on 75 Mile Beach! A$100 pp didn’t seem much for the thrill of looking down on the truly spectacular terrain, and the adrenaline buzz of returning over the waves and touching down on the sand. A massively memorable day out!

      Best Experience in Aus!
      We had the most incredible time on the 1 day tour! Keith, our guide, was so knowledgeable and experienced! We were shocked that he had only been doing the tour a year, he knew so much and we were able to learn loads! He really has passion for his work and you could tell. His enthusiasm was mirrored in the experience as a whole! The island is beautiful and has so much to offer. My partner and I took advantage of the flight offered after lunch and we cannot recommend the whole experience enough! Thank you Kieth and K’gari Explorer Tours, the day was one of the best we’ve had whilst in Australia!

      Tour Guide Guy A+
      Great day out. 4WD bus comfy & good aircon. Tour guide Guy is bloody awesome. Very knowledgeable & is clearly passionate about K’gari. He is an asset to the company. Buffet lunch not the greatest. Had opportunity to go on plane ride. Taking off from beach and landing on beach. This was an added option for those interested. Scary but highly recommended.

    We did the K'gari 3 Day Getaway Tour with Warren. It was the best way to see K'gari without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We learnt about the history and got to experience Champagne Pools and Lake Mackenzie. Highly recommend and can tick K'gari off the bucket list.

    We had the most incredible 3 day tour to Fraser Island! Everything we saw was breathtakingly beautiful! The tour was very well organised and our guide Mark (Sarge) was fantastic. His knowledge of the island was absolutely incredible and he made all explanations very interesting. He is super kind and caring. We loved that he arranged a table for the whole group so we could have dinner together (if we wanted to of course). I’m scared of every creepy crawly, snakes, the lot! However, being led by Mark made me feel very safe.
    Thank you so much K’gari explorer tours, but especially Mark, who made our trip- you deserve all the recognition and credit! An asset K’gari explorer tours.
    Many thanks,

    My husband surprised me with the K’gari Getaway Tour for our 10th anniversary, so I really didn’t know what to expect because I didn’t know much about it. Not only did it turn out to be an incredible trip away but the tour was truly a beautiful and epic adventure! What made our experience even more memorable and enjoyable was our tour guide Mark — he was the man! Hands down!👌🏽 Brought the vibe and took our tour to another level with his personable nature, expertise, knowledge, skilful storytelling, wit and humour, and going the extra mile with tips and tricks to make our trip unforgettable.

    We had a great trip on Kgari with some special moments at Lake Wabby, Eli Creek, Indian Head and Lake McKenzie. We even went in a light aircraft from the beach. The guide 'Mark' was absolutely fantastic. We saw two dingos and even whales. So why only 3 stars? The start of the trip, from the mainland side was a total shambles. Our Viator ticket instructed us to meet at a River Heads address at 2:50pm. That seemed a bit strange so we called the Kingfisher Resort office at 9am (in advance). At this point they asked "why aren't you on the ferry?". It was meant to start at 8:30am! WTF. So we had to rush to the meeting point at 12 noon (with our own transport) for the next ferry. When we arrived late, the reception staff BLAMED US for arriving at the wrong time. We felt really annoyed by this sequence of events. Due to the incorrect times printed on our ticket we missed out on most of our first day on Kgari. Finally, when I raised my concerns with online Viator staff noone seemed to understand the problem and tried brushing it off. Invariably, future guests will have to go through the same cycle of stupidity. PLEASE give better instructions to guests. A simple one page itinerary would have prevented alot of problems.

    Dear DanBow123, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are pleased to read that you had a great trip with us exploring K'gari. It is great to note that you particularly enjoyed Lake Wabby, Eli Creek, Indian Head and Lake McKenzie. We appreciate your kind words for Mark and will be sure to pass this along. We are sorry to hear about the confusion and inconvenience you faced at the start of your trip. We have investigated this accordingly with senior management. We understand that the 3rd party site you booked through has a fixed starting time for this particular tour type. The tour you booked has a 'free' fay on the first day and certainly does not mean guests must be travelling at 8.30am. Guest are however more than welcome to travel prior to the 2.50pm departure and arrive to the resort earlier and take advantage of the facilities. We have identified the misinformation as poor product knowledge from the person you spoke to, along with mistaking your booking for an alternative tour type, that would in fact begin at 8.30am. We again apologise for this, and we are arranging additional re-training for our team, so this does not happen again. We will continue to improve our service and work to enhance providing clear instructions and information to our valued guests. We thank you for your understanding. On behalf of all of us, thank you for choosing to tour with us and we hope to welcome you again in the future and have the chance to turn this experience around.

    Brilliant day- Dave Down was a great guide- informative commentary, great driving skills, kept to time frames- generally a very nice bloke.
    Tour was well worth doing- saw a lot of the island in the 4wd blue bus.
    Buffett lunch was nice- plenty of food.
    Few dingos around but you just stay away from them.
    Well worth doing- hope you get Dave as the tour guide/bus driver- he is excellent.
    Thanks Dave.
