Fraser Island Tag-Along Tours
GET TO KNOW FRASER ISLAND WITH PALACE ADVENTURES
Picture driving along golden beaches that stretch for miles, lush green rainforests and freshwater lakes perfect for swimming in. Add plenty of marine life, birds, and the occasional dingo, and you’ll start to wonder if a place like this actually exists in real life.
Well, you can believe the hype, it’s true. The place we just described is Fraser Island, affectionally shortened to ‘Fraser’ by the locals. Fraser is not only the world’s largest sand island, it’s World Heritage listed and often described as a little slice of heaven on earth.
And on a Palace Adventures Tour, you’ll travel around Fraser Island with ease, explore with fun people, and most importantly, a local guide who is there to make sure you have a great time.

MORE INFO AND FAQ'S
WHAT’S A TAG-A-LONG TOUR?
The best way to explore Fraser Island is by Four Wheel Drive (4WD) so this is how we travel. Tag along tours work by having an experienced tour guide who knows the island, driving the lead 4WD vehicle whilst the rest of the group will have the opportunity to drive the remaining 4WD vehicles* 'tagging along' behind.
If you don’t want to drive or don’t have a driver’s licence, that’s cool. There will be of plenty of passenger’s seats available on every tour.
*To drive the 4WD you must be over 21 years of age (driver’s licence) 2 years driving experience.
ABOUT THE 4WD VEHICLES
Vehicles are connected by radio and are safe, easy to drive, and secure. Plus, your qualified guide knows all the tricks of the trade and is keen to show you the ropes. There's nothing quite like the actual experience of driving along a sandy track, surrounded by vegetation alive with bird life. Or the thrill when you successfully navigate over exposed tree roots on a sandy track or coax your four-wheel-drive vehicle through a dry patch of sand.
WILD WILDERNESS – COMFORTABLE CAMPSITES
Each night we retreat to a purpose built camp site along the eastern beach, we provide all the camping equipment including tents with enough standing room for changing and sleeping bags so you don’t have to bring your own.
Our specially designed weather-proof camp kitchen and camp tables keep the sand out of your food, there’s also a camp toilet so you can enjoy the nights in the Australian bush in comfort.
Other facilities include solar power lighting, water and washing facilities, and Our Palace Camper King Mobile Trailer, towed by the lead vehicle, keeps your personal belongings safe and secure throughout your trip.
