Lake Mackenzie was a bucket list item and did not disappoint. The tour is a fantastic way for non four wheel drivers to see the amazing sights of Fraser Island. Our driver Dave was knowledgeable and an exceptional driver in the difficult terrain.

It was great to see so many of the special Fraser Island sights in a day. Our guide, Wayne, was very knowledgeable and accommodating for our four year old.

Amazing day spent on K'gari. Mark our tour guide gave us an adventure (not tour). Lunch was bland...

The tour guide, Steve, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I loved my time there with my partner. The best part for us was definitely Lake Mckenzie. Recommened for anyone who wants to visit the island without having to worry about the potential pitfalls of driving themselves on the sand tracks.

This day trip was an excellent intro to Fraser Island. It provided an excellent variety of scenery. We had plenty of time at Lake McKenzie to swim. Time allocated at each spot was perfect. Buffet lunch at the Resort was adequate. If anyone desperately needs a coffee/tea at morning and afternoon tea, take your own. Given the cost of taking your own car on the barge, permit, camping fees etc, the day trip was exceptional value. Our guide was Cameron - excellent! Cameron was very experienced and knew the area very well. Friendly and obliging. Thank you Cameron! There was a mix up with pick up arrangements but everything turned out OK.

Hayden was our driver/tour guide and he was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed all the information he gave us interjected with light hearted humour. Meal was okay but would have enjoyed a cup of coffee or tea with it but we weren't there for the food. 4 Wheel drive bus was very comfortable and a great vehicle for getting around. Would recommend for all ages.
