K’gari Tag Along Tours

The Island’s best guided group experience

Explore K’gari with Locally Guided 4WD Tours

Do you want to experience the natural beauty of the beach, a lake, and a rainforest but can’t decide which one to choose? With our tag-along tour, you can enjoy all the above! Come and explore K’gari, formally known as Fraser Island, in a guided 4WD tour, where you get to drive a PINK 4wd!

With a max. of 7 passengers per 4WD, you can be sure you’ll travel in comfort and style. Whether you’re an individual traveller, a couple, or part of a small group, or a family with teenage kids, our tag-along experience brings together like-minded travellers from across the world. Our friendly, knowledgeable and experienced guides, who lead the squad in the white 4WD, will take great care of you throughout the trip. So if you’ve never driven on the sand before, don’t worry. Safety is very important to us, so we make sure you get to learn sand driving in a fun but safe environment.

What will I see on my guided tour?

K’Gari, meaning ‘paradise’ serves up endless views and photo opps! Look out the window as you drive down the beach and see never-ending ocean scapes, strikingly coloured sand features and spectacular sand blows. Head inland on the sandy tracks and explore remnants of majestic ancient rainforests and perched freshwater lakes.

The 2-day tour departs weekly Tuesday and Thursday and travels north to The Pinnacles and visits Lake McKenzie, plus more!
The 3-day tour departs weekly each Friday and travels further north to Indian Head and Champagne Pools, and a mix of lakes depending on the weather and tide.

First-Hand Fraser Dingo Experiences

3 Day Tag Along Tour Fraser Island

Cannot recommend this enough! We had a brilliant tour guide who got everyone involved and was so informative about each location we went to, also thanks to the volunteers who cooked our delicious food each day and catered to everyone’s needs. All the locations were breathtaking, doing the tour made it so much easier to see all of the island.
