  • Explore K’gari (Fraser Island), the world’s biggest sand island
  • Drive on the beach highway, 75 Mile Beach
  • Swim in the crystal-clear waters of Boorangoora (Lake McKenzie)
  • Wander through majestic rainforests growing on sand

Itinerary

The morning starts bright and early with our compulsory tour briefing at 7 a.m. sharp at Freedom Hostel to receive comprehensive information to prepare you for this exciting journey. Here, you will be placed into groups and have the opportunity to organise luggage storage. You will also be taught how to drive safely on Fraser Island ahead of your big adventure!

We aim to depart Freedom Hostel for K’gari (Fraser Island) by 9:30 am, which can take approximately 10 minutes to drive to the barge (ferry). The barge crossing is approximately 15 minutes, and during that time, you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins or other marine life before arriving on the world’s largest sand island.

Once you arrive, you’ll be traversing the eastern beach—K’gari’s (Fraser Islands) own highway with speed limits! Settle in for the journey and enjoy the views as we head north along the beach before stopping for morning tea at one of the many freshwater creeks found on the island.

Following morning tea, we will continue north towards the Maheno Shipwreck, where we’ll stop to share the story of this important landmark, especially it’s use as a hospital ship during wartime. We have lunch included for you today. The lunch destination will be up to your guide, as they’ll find the best spot depending on where you are around that time of the day. We’ll finish up our afternoon at Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek perfect for a refreshing swim or splash and relaxing sunbathing, before heading to our camp.

Meals: Morning Tea, Lunch, Dinner

Arise for a quick breakfast before we begin our second day on K’gari (Fraser Island)!

The adventure begins as we drive south to Eurong before heading inland through ever-changing vegetation to the rainforest at Central Station. Here, you’ll depart your vehicle and follow your guide for a walk alongside beautiful Wanggoolba Creek. Your guide will share the logging history of Central Station along with the indigenous significance of Wanggoolba Creek before sending you on a 1.8-kilometer self-guided walk through the rainforest. You’ll reunite with your guide at the other end of the walk at Pile Valley, where you’ll have morning tea surrounded by towering Satinay trees.

From Pile Valley, it’s a short drive to the famous Boorangoora (Lake McKenzie), arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of K’gari (Fraser Island). Here, you can enjoy quality time lazing on the pristine sand beaches, swimming, and relaxing in the lake’s stunning, clear waters. We’ll then have lunch before packing up and returning to Eastern Beach. Once back on Eastern Beach, we’ll head south to the barge (ferry). From Inskip Point, it’s only a short drive back to Rainbow Beach, where your adventure ends. We return to Freedom Rainbow Beach between 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

We recommend viewing the Queensland Government’s road map to easing restrictions and the Health Direct COVID-19 restriction checker websites regarding any restrictions that may impact your ability to travel prior to making a new booking.

In the event of government-enforced border closures or restrictions, we reserve the right to amend any booking to an open-dated ticket at our discretion.

If you are already on a tour with us and the government enforces border closures or restrictions during this time, we cannot be held responsible or liable for any fee’s incurred to return to your home state or territory.

Health and Safety First:

The safety and well-being of our guests, team, and wider community remain our top priorities.  Thus, the following is a summary of the measures we’ll be undertaking to minimise the risk of covid-19

Precautionary measures for Dingo’s Fraser Island Tours:

All guests will be required to complete a short questionnaire prior to travel.  All information collected will remain confidential, which is a necessary step for us in minimising the risk of COVID-19 on our tours.

Any person exhibiting flu-like or respiratory symptoms at the beginning of the tour will not be permitted to join the tour.  If you hold a booking and begin to display symptoms before your tour, we ask that you contact our team as soon as possible.

The use of hand sanitizer will be required by all guests throughout the tour.

Vehicles will undergo sanitising throughout the day, as well as a thorough sanitising and cleaning at the end of each tour.

Any person exhibiting flu-like or respiratory symptoms at the beginning of the tour will not be permitted to join the tour.  If you hold a booking and begin to display symptoms before or during the tour, we ask that you contact a team member as soon as possible.

Staff members will not be permitted to complete a shift if they present with flu-like or respiratory symptoms.

Our number of departures has been reduced to allow sufficient time between tours for vehicle and campsite sanitising.

1.Our agreement

These booking terms and conditions apply to bookings you make with Australian Adventure Group Holdings Pty Ltd (ACN 661 075 163) trading as Dingo’s Fraser Island Tours (whether over the phone, by email, or with our call centre), as well as online bookings you make on our website or on our related sites (including travel agents and partners) offering our products. We will rely on the authority of the person making the booking to act on behalf of any other traveller on the booking, and that person will bind all such travellers to these terms and conditions.

2.Payment

Customers must pay for their tour in full at the time of booking.  Agents must submit a credit application, which must be approved before alternative payment arrangements can be accessed.

3. Bookings, changes and cancellations

For operational reasons, we may need to change the order of the itinerary.  Our tours are very dependent on tidal and weather conditions, and as such, the itinerary order may be changed to maximise your time at each location.  Should changes to the tour be required, Dingo’s will make every effort possible to ensure no attractions are missed.  There may be some occasions in which some locations cannot be visited because they are out of our control, in which case we will endeavour to find a suitable alternative.

There may be some instances in which Dingo’s needs to change the details of your tour, such as a date change or vehicle change, for operational reasons.  If you cannot participate in a rescheduled tour, then we will give you a full refund, except that we cannot refund the amount of any credit card fees charged in connection with your booking.

Customers wishing to change or cancel their tour must do so at least 7 days before the tour departure time, or fees may apply (see below).  Any changes are subject to availability.  Notifications of intent to change or cancel that are made outside of office hours are deemed to be received at the time when the office next opens.

You must confirm the names of all customers participating on a tour and any dietary or other requirements at least 48 hours before the time for departure (see below).  You may request changes (including to the names of the participating customers) after this time, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. However, we cannot guarantee it.  If we can accommodate a request for late changes, then we reserve the right to charge you any additional fees or surcharges associated with the request.

Any guest that has a medical condition that requires specific medication, or one that could likely become exasperated through participation in the tour, must notify us of these details during their booking and confirmation processes.  Any guests who require regular medication should ensure they have adequate supplies with them for the duration of their tour.  Lead drivers should be notified of the location of any life-saving medication that is carried, such as, but not limited to, epipens, asthma inhalers, and diabetic medication.  All information collected is kept confidential and only shared with staff directly involved in managing their health and safety.

We can accommodate customers with limited mobility, but we ask that you raise any concerns about access and mobility with us at the time of booking to ensure that the tour is suitable. Due to the nature of the activities on tour, guests are advised that a moderate level of fitness is recommended.

Where bookings are open-dated or a booking is changed to an unspecified date, the tours must be taken within 12 months of the date of the original booking, after which time your voucher for travel will expire.

Open-dated vouchers and bookings expire 12 months from the date of issue.  Once a tour date has been selected, this booking is then governed by our standard terms and conditions.

4. Fees and surcharges

Fares: Our quoted rates are valid between April 1 and March 31 of the following year.

Public Holiday Surcharge: Tours operating over a public holiday are subject to an additional surcharge payable at the time of booking.

Credit Card Surcharge: A credit card surcharge of 1.5% may be charged if you use a credit card to pay for your booking.

Cancellation Fee: Cancellations within 7 days of the tour departure time or a customer’s failure to attend the tour at the scheduled time will attract a 100% cancellation fee.

Re-booking Fee: If you wish to reschedule your booking within 7 days of the tour departure time, we may be able to accommodate your request, but we do not guarantee it as it will be subject to availability. Such changes may be subject to additional fees.

5. Information from you

The terms of our access to national parks require us to collect certain information in respect of each customer participating in a tour.  If you do not provide the required information, we cannot finalise the booking.

Please advise us of any dietary or other requirements at the time of booking and when you reconfirm your tour (see below).

Personal information is collected and managed in accordance with our privacy policy, which can be accessed here

6.Confirmation

Please ensure that you confirm your tour directly with us at least 48 hours prior to the tour departure time.  Failure to do so may result in us being unable to accommodate all of your needs.

We ask that you confirm the names of all customers participating on the tour, their dietary requirements, and whether each guest will be participating as a driver (see driver eligibility criteria). You can confirm by emailing res@dingosfraser.com  or by calling our reservations team between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (AEST) Monday through Friday at 1800 111 126.

7. Driving on tour

Any guest wishing to participate in driving during their tour must meet all of the following criteria:

  • be over the age of 21 years;

  • have held a full manual drivers license for at least 1 year; and

  • have their national driver’s license with them (international driving permits unaccompanied by a national driver’s license are invalid).

Any guests that fail to meet all the above criteria will be ineligible to partake as drivers; however, they can still join the tour as non-drivers.

If you elect to participate as a driver on one of our tours, you will be responsible for the safekeeping of the vehicle and any equipment (including any ancillary items or accessories). A driver must not do or cause anything to be done that may endanger the safety or condition of others or the vehicle and must use all reasonable measures to protect the vehicle against theft, vandalism, and damage. You must advise Dingo’s if the vehicle is lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed. The vehicle must be in clean condition and in good working order upon return.

The driver will be fully responsible to Dingo’s for any loss of or damage to the vehicle during the period of hire, however occurring. You agree, as the driver of the vehicle, that you will not:

  • disobey road rules or be in contravention of any law;

  • permit an unauthorised person to drive the vehicle;

  • use the incorrect fuel type;

  • drive under the influence of alcohol; or

  • disobey any direction given to you by a Dingo’s staff member.

Prior to departure, a driver can elect to pay an applicable vehicle damage liability reduction, reducing the amount of excess and liability the driver may be liable for in respect of damages (or any claim) to the vehicle. However, should a third party be responsible for damages caused to the vehicle, whether by collision, accidental, or malicious act, and the claim can be proved against this third party and Dingo’s can claim insurance for the damages resulting to the vehicle, the driver may not be liable.

The driver uses the vehicle at his own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the driver forever releases, discharges, indemnifies, and holds harmless Dingo’s and its directors, officers, members (except the driver where the driver is a member of Dingo’s), employees, servants, or agents against any and all claims, losses, actions, proceedings, costs, damages, demands, expenses (including legal expenses), and liabilities whatsoever arising from: (a) any claims, actions, or proceedings made, brought, or commenced by any person in relation to the driver’s use of the vehicle; (b) any act, omission, or misconduct of the driver; or (c) any breach or non-performance of the driver’s obligations under these terms and conditions.

8. What to bring

You will need to present confirmation of your booking on the day of your tour. We accept digital copies so that you don’t have to print your confirmation.

Due to the limited space in the vehicles, only small overnight bags can be taken on tour.  Larger items can be stored free of charge at Freedom Hostel for the duration of your tour.  If you have valuables you wish to leave behind, we recommend arranging a locker for these items for the duration of your tour.

Guests are advised to bring along the following items for all Dingo’s Tours: comfortable clothing and footwear, swimwear, towels for beach and showers, hats, sunscreen, insect repellent, flashlights, refillable water bottles, warm clothes for nighttime, and a water and sand-proof bag to store cameras, iPods, and phones.

Guests joining our 3-day tag-along tour should also pack the following, in addition to the above items: $2 coins for the showers and a sleeping bag.  Some guests may wish to bring along a travel-size pillow, which is not provided on this tour.

9. Participating in the tour

Guests must confirm directly with our reservations team at least 48 hours prior to travel, where we need to collect any applicable dietary and medical requirements and update your driver status.

All guests must attend a mandatory briefing, which covers important island and safety information, prior to the departure of their tour.  Guests who fail to show for their briefing risk missing their tour and being classed as a ‘no show’, forfeiting their fare.  If you experience difficulty making it to your briefing, you must notify our reservations team in advance of its starting time.

While on the tour, you are responsible for your own personal safety.  Tours to remote locations, such as Fraser Island, pose inherent dangers and risks that are generally not found elsewhere.  For example, on Fraser Island, you will be exposed to heat and sun.  Fraser Island is home to wildlife that can cause you harm if you are not vigilant, such as snakes and dingoes.  Medical assistance and emergency services on Fraser Island can take hours to arrive.  Your lead driver is trained in first aid and carries a first aid kit on tour, but he is not responsible for protecting you from these dangers. It is important that you listen to all instructions and directions given by your lead driver and briefer to ensure you are aware of important safety information and what to do in case of an emergency.

​The group will remain together for the majority of the tour. However, you will have the opportunity at various times to participate in additional activities, such as an extended walk or swimming independently.

​If you choose to swim during your tour you must ensure that you participate in any swimming or water activities within the range of your own abilities.  These activities are not supervised by any lifesavers or any other person.  During this time, your lead driver may be occupied with other customers or may be preparing your catering.

Guests can take a limited amount of alcohol on tour.  This is for health and safety reasons, as well as having limited space in the vehicles.  Questions regarding alcohol on tour will be answered during the mandatory safety briefing.

No glass can be taken onto the island.  Lead drivers are there to facilitate a safe and enjoyable journey across Fraser Island, but they are not responsible for monitoring alcohol consumption during the tour.  Guests are responsible for ensuring they adhere to their own limits.  Drivers will be breath tested the mornings of the tour and will be refused to drive if they are shown to be over the limit. Any guest that misses part of their tour due to alcohol consumption will not receive any compensation.

10. Authority on tour

Our tours are run by a lead driver.  The decision of the lead driver is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any traveller or staff member participating in the tour.  If you fail to comply with a decision made by the lead driver or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the lead driver may direct you to leave the trip immediately with no right of refund.  Guests who are removed from the tour will be taken back to Rainbow Beach, with all related expenses incurred by the guest being removed from the tour.

We expect all of our customers to respect other guests and staff on the tour and to comply with all instructions given by the lead driver.  You must at all times comply with the law, and you also agree to travel in accordance with our responsible travel guidelines.

11. Consent to use of images

You consent to us using images taken of you during your tour for advertising and marketing purposes. This may include posts on social media.  Please notify your lead driver at the start of the tour if you do not wish to appear in any photos or video.

By connecting your own images with us in social media posts, such as #mydingosfraser, #dingosfraserisland, or @dingosfrasertours, you agree that we can re-post or use such images.  We will credit the origin of the original post in each case.

12. Limitation of liability

To the fullest extent allowed by law, we exclude all implied warranties together with all liability for loss, death, injury, or damage that you may suffer (directly or indirectly) as a consequence of booking or participating in the tour or for any breach of these terms and conditions by us.  You agree to release us, our officers, employees, agents, and representatives from any and all liability, and you irrevocably waive any claims that you may have against us arising out of or in connection with your booking or participation on the tour.

For any liability that cannot be excluded by law, our liability is limited to, at our sole discretion, providing you with a tour of equivalent value or refunding the amount paid by you for your tour.

You may not make any claim against us that relates to indirect or consequential loss, loss of profits or economic loss, or punitive or exemplary damages.

13.Travel Insurance

If a passenger is unable to make their trip due to circumstances not of their own fault, e.g., road blocks, weather, late buses, etc., Dingo’s will issue them a letter to claim back on their travel insurance. We recommend that all clients have travel insurance, especially during the wet season (Jan–April).

Guests are strongly advised to take out travel insurance to cover themselves in the event of any unforeseen circumstances.

14.Feedback

We welcome feedback from all of our customers. Feedback on the tour can be given to your lead driver. If you wish to provide feedback after your tour, please contact us by email at res@dingosfraser.com  or by telephone at +61 7 5401 5508.

15.General

These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of the State of Victoria, and the parties submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts exercising jurisdiction in that place.

If any provision set out in these terms and conditions is unenforceable or void by law, then it is to be severed from these terms and conditions.  The remaining provisions will remain in full force, provided that the severance of the relevant provision has not materially altered their intended operation.

15.Open-dated vouchers

Guests who hold an open-dated voucher must contact our office to secure their preferred date of travel, which is subject to availability.  Guests wishing to use their open-dated voucher for travel on a tour that runs over a public holiday may be subject to a public holiday surcharge.

Open-dated vouchers are not a ticket to travel until a date of travel has been secured with our office and a confirmation has been issued.  Once a date of travel has been secured, the booking will then be subject to our regular terms and conditions.  Any open-dated voucher that is not used before it’s given expiration date will be forfeited without refund.  Open-dated vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of issue, unless otherwise stated.
