4WDRIVING ON FRASER ISLAND… 4WDriving on Fraser Island is heaps of fun and is a top highlight for many of our guests. We take the hassle out of navigating the beach and knowing all the 4WD techniques so all you have to do is follow your guides wheel tracks and simple instructions. All our vehicles are fully automatic and in constant 4WD so you can relax and take in the scenery.
CAN I DRIVE? If you have a full/open drivers licence, are over 21 and passed your driving test more than 12 months ago you can drive a Drop Bear 4WD. You need to have the Photo ID Card Licence with you and if your licence is not written in English or states ‘Drivers Licence’ on it in English you will need to provide an international translation. Please note that you cannot drive if you just have an international translation. You must have your physical licence with you as it is illegal to drive in Queensland without having your licence. If the police stop you on Fraser Island the fines can be very hefty and we don’t want you to pay the government any of your holiday spending money.
WHAT IF I CAN’T OR DON’T WANT TO DRIVE? That’s OK, every pilot needs a good co-pilot to bust out the best tunes and handle walkie talkie communications.
IS IT SAFE? Driving any vehicle requires safe practises regardless of where you are driving and we do everything we can to make sure that our adventures together are as safe as possible. Your tour guide will conduct a detailed safety briefing on the morning of your tour as well as showing a government safety video depicting best 4WDriving practises. All Drop Bear tag along cars are in constant 4WD and have been rated as one of Australia’s most reliable and safe vehicles, the Toyota 80 series. You are also in constant contact with your guide via walkie talking and are never more than 100m behind the lead vehicle. So rest easy little traveller, we’ll look out for you on your island adventure.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD? Our camp hasn’t been designed by some novelty campers, oh no! It has been designed by our very own Poppa Bear who has 30plus years of camping experience under his belt. So don’t fear, a little rain and wind won’t dampen our camping spirits and if the weather gets really hairy we always have a Plan B with our Drop Bear Hostel just down the road.
TRAVELLING WITH KIDS? Sadly our 2 and 3 day tours are not suitable for little kids. Big kids are most certainly welcome, so whether you are 15 or 50 and you love an adventure this is the tour for you.
