Family friendly tour

Hi Everyone, we are doing a family driving holiday over December/January and so would like to get to Fraser Island/Hervey Bay. We were thinking of perhaps doing a tour as our car is not a 4WD and so I have been looking at tours and they all seem to be tours for backpackers and youngies which is awesome!! but my 3 year old will drive them crazy! So can anyone recommend any family friendly tours up that way?? Thanks!

Hi Dom,

You will need to provide your own car seat for the infant. The most family friendly day tour would be the Fraser Explorer Day Tour (40 passengers).

The only tours that are marketed for backpackers or "youngies" are the Cool Dingo tours.

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for the info, you seem to have some great knowledge of the area. Do you know of any 2 to 3 days tours that would accomodate kiddies?

Thanks!

Hi Dom,

Fraser Explorer also run a 2 day tour (40 passengers) that accommodates at Eurong Beach Resort. This is a great tour and caters for all ages.

If you wanted to do 3 days you would need to do a self-drive tour - but I would not recommend this with a 3 yr old and during peak summer holiday period. You will really enjoy the 2 day tour, and if you want to see more of Fraser, there are a couple of full day boat based trips from Hervey Bay that visit the beautiful west side of Fraser that is largely inaccessible by vehicle.

Cheers,

Rob
