We took a full day tour from Brisbane to Fraser Island with Australian day tours. Its a long day with very early pick up and late return, but it was worth it to see Fraser Island. The guide was quite a character and my husband and I were told to sit in the front cab next to him, while all the other tourists were seated in the back. At first I didnt really like this idea (it meant I had to be hoisted by either the guide or my spouse by the backside to reach the cab) and I didnt fancy having to make conversation all day long with a stranger but we were assured that these were the best seats by far and it turned out to be so right! Our guide was a great companion throughout the day and really made me and my husband feel we had a privileged and personalised experience. The weather was pretty poor that day and by the time we reached the island it was pouring down most of the time. One thing to be aware of is that if you have a bad back you may not want to take a tour to Fraser Island. The roads are so bad that the tour bus was bouncing around all over the place (which is the fun part) and by the end of the day my back was pretty sore. But the tour overall was great fun, and the guide even let me hold the wheel for part of the time. He also gave us a guided tour through the rainforest which was really interesting to see the flora and fauna. And then at the end of the tour we were lucky enough to see a pack of wild dingos on the beach by the island ferry which really made the day. I would definitely recommend this as an easy (if bumpy) way to see Fraser Island.
