So much of what makes a tour great comes from the guide and we make sure that our lads are a cut above the rest… after all, they are upholding the legacy of Mumma and Poppa Bear themselves. When you travel with us you won’t hear some boring rehearsed script, oh no. You’ll hear true understanding, passion and excitement to share our abundance of knowledge.

Not forgetting the most important meal of the day, brekky is eggs, toast, cereals, fresh fruit and hot drinks prepared for you on your second day of adventures.

If our experience has taught us anything it’s that Toyota Landcruisers are the best! With a fleet of these beasty trucks, we are confident in saying that our 4WD’s are some of the easiest to drive off road. With an automatic transmission and in constant 4WD you can let your hair down and have some fun as you cruise along the beach in one of our Drop Bear Landcruisers.
You can see our full terms and conditions here. Though 4WDriving on a guided tour is very safe, it is important to understand that you are embarking on a true Aussie adventure.
Some cheeky companies can charge you up to $30 a day for ‘national park fees’ or ‘local charges’ but not us. Everything is included in our tours so you can rest assured that you are most certainly not going to be stung for any extra’s.
If you are travelling by bus up or down the east coast then this is a great option for you. Simply choose any combination of starting or finishing your tour in Noosa or Rainbow Beach and we’ll take care of transferring your luggage.
One of the few lakes still known as her Aboriginal name, Lake Birrabeen is a very sacred and special place on Fraser Island and is believed to have healing powers. A local’s favourite and just as beautiful as Lake McKenzie, Birrabeen’s clear waters and silica sands will have you dazzled. A more peaceful spot to enjoy and switch off at.
This beautiful, tea-tree infused lake is the largest lake on the island but also the most shallow. You can walk out to the middle of the lake and it’ll still only be waist deep! The natural tea-tree water is so good for your skin and hair, especially after an exfoliate with the silica sand from Lake Birrabeen!
The Maheno shipwreck was finally laid to rest on K’gari shoreline in 1936 when it was struck by an off-season cyclone. Originally it was a luxury cruise liner before being used as target practice for Air Force in WW2. Locals say that within 10 years the wreck will be gone due to it slowly sinking further into the sand.
Eli Creek is the perfect spot to cool down on a hot day! Being the largest freshwater creek on the island, it pours up to four million litres of clear, fresh water into the ocean every hour. The perfect place to fill up your water bottles. Just remember to do it upstream…
There’s a lot of stories behind the formation of the Pinnacles. Whether you believe in Dream Time Legends or scientific theories, we will share the stories and facts with you so you can make your own mind up. Either way, this breathtaking natural wonder is an amazing example of nature at it’s finest.
Two of the island’s most beautiful tea-tree lakes. One home to freshwater turtles, the other known for its perfect mirror reflection. Lake Allom & Lake Garawongera are two of the island’s more hidden wonders that we just love to share with you.
There’s no better highway than 75 Mile Beach! Driving alongside the immense Pacific Ocean, the stunning views will capture your heart and stay with you forever. Drive past some of the oldest coastal sand dune formations in the world whilst singing along to your favourite tunes!
By starting or ending your tour in Noosa you get the chance to take the scenic drive down Rainbow Beach, past the beautiful coloured sands. This drive is only available on a low tide and is subject to weather conditions.
