Experience the real beauty of Fraser island with our 4WD hire!

If you are two people or six people, we have a 4WD package for you! See below all of the information on what is included in our 4WD packages.

This is what is included in all of our 4WD hire packages:

Stress-free booking process: There is a lot involved in preparing for a Fraser Island trip and getting to the Island depends on barge availability. Give yourself the best chances by booking in advance, especially in peak season!

Personalised itinerary: Discovering Fraser Island is an extremely tide and weather-dependant adventure! Leave the headache of preparing the itinerary to us to avoid the unnecessary driving time, that way you can relax and know we’ve planned the best itinerary for you! Enjoy the inland hidden treasures of Fraser Island during high tide and get to the Eastern Beach safely for low tide for the drive of your life.

Extensive knowledge of Fraser Island: Our Dingo team knows all about Fraser Island and can provide you with all sorts of special interest information. Dingo awareness, short or extended walk/hike options, nature conservation, Fraser Island history… Let us know what you want to know!

Eco experience: The Fraser Dingo team is environmentally aware and undertakes many sustainable practices. This includes carbon offsetting all 4WD vehicles, using sustainable products in the office and recycling and composting. Our headquarters also runs on solar power!

Fuel: Vehicle is hired with a full tank of fuel and must be returned with a full tank of fuel, all of our vehicles are unleaded (the approx. cost of a full fuel tank is $50 – $100+ depending on how many days hire).

Immaculate vehicle: All vehicles are all hired in detailed and immaculately cleaned condition and must be returned in hired clean condition. On return of hire the vehicle may either be cleaned at the car wash approx. cost $25.00 or you can add our Dingo Clean for $40 (1- 3 Days) or $60 ( 4 or more days).

Automatic 4WD Hire: Cruise around the Island in one of our brightly painted PINK or BLUE Toyota Landcruiser Prado’s! From 1 to 6 people, conditions apply.

Barge transfers: The barge transfer to Fraser Island (from $185.00, min price based on off peak 2 persons) is included in our prices and booked for you by our Dingo team. After you make a booking we will take care of organising your barge transfers in line with the briefing time. We will then send you a confirmation email with the schedule of your trip summarised.

Mandatory 4WD safety briefing: We undertake a 1 hour safety briefing prior to departure, during this briefing we tell you all the information to enjoy your time on Fraser Island. This can be the day before departure or the morning of departure, depending on availability. Please allow at least 2h before your preferred barge time choice.

COVID-19 Health and Hygiene: In relation to the current social distancing measures put in place by governments to curb the current coronavirus outbreak, we would like our customers to know that we have implemented strict measures to adhere to the requirements. That is why we believe 4WD hire in your own group is the best option for travelling on Fraser Island. We will be deep cleaning all hire vehicle interiors with dettol between each hire. Maintaining strict social distancing measures during the safety briefing as it’s only your group and the instructor. Offering online check in for reading and signing of contract/waivers to reduce paper handling and contact.

Things to note

Pink is the new Green. Our 4WD vehicles don’t have air-conditioning, for ecological and economical reasons. Open your windows and fill your lungs with Fraser’s World Heritage fresh air.

Think and plan ahead! Our 4WD hire packages can be in high demand (especially in holidays and peak seasons) and we have limited availability. So make sure you book in advance to secure your dream Fraser trip at the best price!
