Enjoyed our ride in the jetboat going over. Lunch was excellent pick anything on menu was included in your. The 4wheel bus ride was fun enjoyed that. Lake MacKenzie was beautiful didn't realise afternoon tea was included very nice. Our bus driver was a lovely man. Definitely will be coming back to explore the wreck, Eli creek in the future

Fantastic tour, staff were amazing with communication, the whole day was perfect. We stopped at picnic island on the way to Fraser and the speedboat was a great experience. Lunch on Fraser island was beautiful, a choice of anything on the menu except prawns. Braised beef cheek I highly recommend and a glass of wine or soft drink. The trip out to lake Mackenzie was very exciting in the huge 4wd bus. I sat up the front so was like a roller coaster. We had 2.5 hours to relax and swim at the lake then afterwards afternoon tea and the 30 min trip back to look around the resort. Ferry back home. It was one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. Highly recommend.
