Fraser Island's iconic Cool Dingo off-roading, guided tour takes the hard...

Fraser Island's iconic Cool Dingo off-roading, guided tour takes the hard work out of managing tides, traffic and navigation on the world's largest sand island, and puts the fun back in to adventure touring.

World Heritage-listed Fraser Island is well known for beautiful, fresh-water lakes, untouched sand dunes, ancient rainforests and the spectacular 75-mile ocean beach, which comes complete with a shipwreck - all of which are discovered, along with local legends, interp and insider knowledge on a Cool Dingo tour.

Cool Dingo two and three-day tours are fully guided and all-inclusive and promise a good night's rest on Fraser Island, with comfy lodge accommodation, hearty buffet meals, air-conditioned 4WD tours and return catamaran transfers - as well as some amazing scenery.

You can also forget fidgety nights in tents and worrying about how to get from one spot to another... There's plenty of 4WD action, great value and fun to boot - and best of all no tents, no sleeping bags, no cooking, no driving and no worries.

Tours depart from Fraser Island, Hervey Bay, Rainbow Beach and the Gold Coast (selected dates).

Absolutely loved the cool dingo tour. I think what made it extra fun was our tour guide, Gaza. He was lively and informative and it was really easy to talk to him about the island and Australia in general. While the tour was pricy, I did find it worth it. We did so many things and didn't have to worry... More

2 days/1 night. Glad I didn't book the 2 nights as it felt the island did not have that much time to offer. Overall I thought that there was too many person on the tour :40 which I was not expecting. The accommodation in lodges shared bunks is pretty good. Second the adds are misleading as they advertise no pasta... More

Great way to get around Fraser Island. Accommodation and food was both way above the average backpacker hostel standards! Our guide Hayden was knowledgeable and humorous, making everybody have a good time on the tour! The group was social and friendly. Some of us met again several times on our east coast trip. Recommended!

I had a great time in this tour. My group was quite nice. There were about 20 of us. The bus was new and comfortable. I had a 3 days tour and there only 5 people on the third day. I think the third day was the best one. The food was delicious and the accomodation was comfortable. Dave, the... More

Davy taught us about the nature, the wildlife the trees, plants and the butchella people of Fraser. Food was great buffet style plenty of choice. Accommodation for us was dorm style as a couple we stayed with... More

All in all is a good tour. The tour guides and the food are the highlight of the tour. Both are amazing. The nightly activities for people to mingle need improvement. We played beer pong, they prepared a two round game, and didn't provide the beer for the second round!! So you had to either pay for your beer (16,50... More
