Get Off-Road Ready: Fraser Island 4WD Course from Hervey Bay
Get behind the wheel of a 4-wheel-drive vehicle on World Heritage–listed Fraser Island during this 9-hour off-roading tour from Hervey Bay. During this action-packed, private, self-drive adventure with an off-roading guide, you'll go through an intense 4WD course on an exclusive, purpose-built track at Kingfisher Bay Resort. Learn how to handle soft terrain, steep hills, and tight corners before exploring the island.
Your day begins in Hervey Bay, on the mainland, for hotel pickup and transfer to the barge with your guide. Sit back and enjoy the 45-minute trip across Sandy Strait to Fraser Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Once on the island, get behind the wheel of your 4WD (either the one provided or your own, if you have the proper permit) and make your way around the purpose-built training track at Kingfisher Bay Resort. This course provides the opportunity to gain all sorts of skills to avoid getting into trouble and know what to do for those times when trouble finds you. You'll get off-road ready and push your boundaries to learn the techniques necessary to explore Fraser Island by 4WD.
Next, shake off the sand and enjoy a poolside lunch at the resort before heading back out and hitting the tracks on a self-drive journey into the wilderness that is Fraser Island. Armed with your new skills, you'll be confident enough to traverse soft tracks of the world’s largest sand island, traveling through diverse ecosystems and some challenging terrain. Your reward will be spectacular locations inaccessible to the less adventurous.
Your tour ends with the return voyage to Hervey Bay in the evening, with hotel transfers available when you arrive. This is an ideal day trip for anyone who has wondered what it would be like to experience the freedom of exploring a wild place at your own pace.
