Helpful Information

  •  Fraser Island is only a 15 minute barge ride from Inskip Peninsula. Making it the quickest route to the Island.
  • To hire one of our 4×4’s you must be over the age of 21.
  • You arrive on the side of the Island which has most of the attractions
  • Dingoes are prevalent on the island, just be sensible and do not try to feed them or pat them. Respect that they are a wild animal no matter how cute they look and take pictures from a distance. For more information on Dingo Safety, visit http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/fraser/fraser-island-dingoes.html
  • We recommend a minimum of 2 days on the Island to see the main attractions
  • The Barge operates continually throughout the day from 6am to 5pm (this may change at peak times)
  • Currently the barge is $120 per car/ return – If you do a day trip on a Sunday they will do an $80 special
  • You can pay for your barge on the barge, at local agencies or http://mantarayfraserislandbarge.com.au/
  • Camping permits can be obtained online through http://parks.nprsr.qld.gov.au/permits
  • You will need to purchase your own vehicle permit to visit Fraser Island or Double Island Point
  • Our vehicles are restricted from going past Champagne Pools at Middle Rock and Indian Head in the warmer months
  • For day trips it is best if you can time them for a mid morning high tide to make the most of your day
  • Ask us for approximate drive times between attractions as beach driving can be slow due to conditions
  • You should try to limit your swimming to the number of fresh inland lakes or Eli Creek. The ocean off Fraser Island has dangerous surf conditions and is well known for large Sharks and Urukandji Jellyfish.
  • We recommend you read the Qld Parks and Wildlife Safe Beach Driving tips which can be found here:http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/fraser/pdf/survive_your_drive_fraser.pdf
