Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing experience. Guy was waiting for us at the ferry and we immediately felt welcomed. He's a great guide, super knowledgeable and very friendly. The bus was comfortable and we had a great time. We were opting for a self drive or tag along first, but so glad we didn't do that. It may look fun at first, but the driving on K'gari is very challenging, so we were happy to have an experienced driver and guide. Guy managed to hook us up with a flight over the island with Air K'gari. Bonus to an already unforgettable trip!

An extraordinarily brilliant one-day trip to Fraser Island today, hosted by Steve (Cookie) on the big 40-seater coach - an amazing vehicle.
We were blessed with fine weather, but Steve's non-stop commentary, excellent driving on 'interesting' roads, perfect time keeping, and three dingo spots made it a day to remember forever. We also took the option of taking the short pleasure flight taking off and landing on the 75 mile beach, which was a 15 minute added extra.
Everything from the early morning pick up, the excellent buffet lunch, perfect sunset ferry ride back to the mainland and the efficient coach ride home were on the nail. V well done.

I thouroughly enjoyed the 1-day trip to Fraser Island, starting in Rainbow Beach. Rainbow beach is a nice little place to stay and perfect to get to Fraser Island. John, our guide for the day, did a fantastic job👍. Thank you 🙏 for a fun day😃, it was absolutely amazing, exploring the rainforest drive with the bumpy roades 😅, the beach drive etc. The option to book a flight to see it from the top is on a perfect day a "must". This was definitely a highlight of my Aussie trip 😉.

Incredible day, only complaint is that it wasn’t long enough!! Keith was our tour guide and he honestly made the whole tour. He was so passionate about the island and giving everyone the best tour possible. From playing awesome tunes on the bus, to giving us a running commentary on dingoes 😂 he was wonderful and deserves a raise! Thanks for taking Eli to Eli Creek Keith, it was a pleasure x

This day trip was fantastic. Kurt our driver and guide was great. Lots of great information about the places we were travelling to and the area we were in.
From the crystal clear waters, coloured sands, Maheno shipwreck, rainforest with towering trees and stunning Lake McKenzie. K'gari is absolutely stunning.
The lunch at the resort was delicious and catered to all tastes.
Lots of attractions to see without feeling too rushed.
Thank you Kurt for a fabulous day!

Well what can I say. The day started out a bit miserable due to heavy rainfall up until 7am.

However this totally changed. We had an amazing tour guide in Keith. His knowledge, his humour and love for doing his job was nothing short of amazing. He made the day.

We were so so fortunate that the weather came when we arrived at the Lake. It was absolutely stunning.

On the day we were also fortunate that we were able to do a scenic flight which topped the trip off. A 10 minute flight taking off on the beach and the landing on the beach. This is only 1 of 2 places in the world that this can be done.

Please make sure you book this tour. Well worth it.

Keith was the best Tourguide I have experienced in my entire life. I am not kidding here. Such a nice guy with lots of information and a good sense of humor. I was a bit mad at the beginning of the day because of the bad/ rainy weather, but Keith definitely cheered us all up and we still had a great day together. Definitely worth the money. And the weather got better during the day as well.
Thank you Keith for that lovely experience !!
