Self Drive Guided Tours

3D/2N + 2 extra dorm nights at Palace Hervey Bay: $549pp

The Palace Self Drive Guided 4x4 Camping Safari... puts you in the driver's seat... with a little help

Palace Adventures' Tag-a-long tours offer the best of both worlds... not only do you get to drive yourself and your friends on the world's largest sand island - Fraser Island - but you also get the benefit of a guide with local knowledge, bad jokes, great stories and plenty of four-wheel-driving experience.

The skills you learn here, will stay with you wherever you travel.

Tag-a-long tours allow solo travellers and groups of friends to band together and travel around Fraser with absolute ease... there's one lead vehicle in the group and the rest are self-drivers, connected by radio. And while you are camping in World Heritage Wilderness, our Palace Camper King Mobile Trailer means you don't have to rough it - we call that the Palace Advantage.

Your Self Drive Tour includes:

  • A trained lead Driver/Guide to provide constant communication throughout the trip. Our guides will point out areas of interest; give driving instructions through difficult sections of the sand tracks and share a joke or two!
  • 4WD vehicles which are safe, easy to drive and secure. Your belongings will be securely stored inside the vehicle/s while you explore Fraser Island's many attractions.
  • 2 nights camping and all necessary camping equipment in our pre-set camp site includes; canvas tents (with standing room for changing), custom-designed cooking and food preparation facility, tables and chairs - which allows you to prepare and eat meals without needing to sit in sand, BBQ burners, prep benches, solar power lighting, wrap-around awning for weather protection, storage for all gear, water and washing facilities, ice to keep cold drinks, return ferry tickets, and a camp toilet for a little bit of extra comfort.
  • All meals whilst on tour, we shop for the group and bring the food to cook on the island.
  • Return ferry transfers from Hervey Bay to Fraser Island
  • National Park permits and fees.

So what's left for you to do...

We've done the hard work in preparing your Fraser Island trip - leaving you time to explore that pristine World Heritage wilderness. Fresh water swimming spots like Eli Creek (on 75-Mile Beach), Lake Wabby* and Lake McKenzie are always popular after a morning spent on the sand tracks, bush walking or trekking across dunes.

*Lakes we visit vary depending on access and seasons.

A typical itinerary would see you head into the heart of the old logging area through Fraser Island’s famous sub-tropical rainforests and Satinay trees with time at Central Station for a stroll along the boardwalk admiring the picturesque clear waters of Wanggoolba Creek and head up the golden beach highway of 75-Mile Beach enroute to the famous Indian Head. This rocky outcrop affords fantastic views both north and south... and if you look closely you'll often see manta rays, turtles, sharks and schools of fish going about their business in the waves below. Indian Head is also a great vantage point to spot Humpback Whales during their annual migration from July until late October.

But wait... There's more

No visit to Fraser Island is complete without a visit to Mother Nature's jacuzzi - the Champagne Pools are filled with bubbles as the surf hits a rocky outcrop - fantastic cooling off spot and you'll get fantastic photos. We'll also fit in a trip to the Pinnacles Coloured Sands, Eli Creek (one of Fraser's most popular spots with the locals in summer) and the wreck of the Maheno. And of course, there is plenty of time to chill out at Lake McKenzie.
