Enjoy an action packed day of four-wheel driving on world heritage Fraser Island and learn to confidently handle off road conditions. Beginning in Hervey Bay get off road ready on an intensive, purpose built 4WD course. Then hit the wilderness on a private, self drive 4WD adventure.
Nothing gives you the freedom to explore quite like the ability to handle a four wheel drive. Once you’ve conquered the master vehicle, you can roll through the wilderness instead of being bound by it. So it’s time to hop into the driver’s seat and do it.
What better place to learn to take on the terrain than the beautiful sandy landscape of Fraser Island? Kick off your morning from River Heads in Hervey Bay with a scenic barge trip across the Great Sandy Straits to Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island. You’ll get straight to it and behind the wheel of your own 4WD, starting on an exclusive, purpose built training track. Practice some skills and push your boundaries to prepare you for your real off-road adventures.
To stop and revive you’ll take a break and relax poolside for a delicious lunch at the famous Kingfisher Bay Resort. Then it’s back behind the wheel, this time for a self-drive exploration in your four wheel drive into the sandy wilderness of Fraser Island. The terrain is tough, but the sights are worth it and you’ll have all your new skills from your morning session under your belt. You’ll be well-rewarded for the challenge with the satisfaction of reaching spectacular secluded locations that are inaccessible to less adventurous drivers.
Your action-packed day wraps up with a barge ride back to Hervey Bay at 6pm, and by then you’ll be well-practiced at handling a 4WD. This is the ideal day out if you’ve ever felt keen to push the boundaries of your exploration potential and see Fraser Island.
