What we say and do

Most people know a 4WD is required to visit Fraser Island.  Sometimes even those with their own off road 4x4 vehicle don't want to take it to the island because of the salt conditions and rough terrain, including of course lots of soft, deep sand.

At Rainbow Beach Adventure Centre we strive to provide the best quality vehicles for off-road hire to Fraser Island and Rainbow Beach, Queensland.  We'd like to think that we give confidence to all visitors wishing to explore Fraser Island independently and that driving on beach conditions are remarkably straight forward (as long as we stick to the rules and regulations - see our tips below).  Feedback confirms our visitors feel completely capable in the self drive experience that delivers all the highlight destinations of this world heritage listed paradise.

Established by Greg Haring in 1999 our upbeat little enterprise has always operated an all-Toyota 4WD fleet that is now dominated by automatic 100 Series GXL Series 2 Land Cruisers.  The hire package includes unlimited kilometres, basic liability coverage, full driving demonstration, tidal information, map and suggested itinerary.

Drive to beach conditions and observe the low tidal window - generally 2-3 hours either side of dead low providing beach access for approximately 5-6 hours. 

Note tide moves forward approximately one hour daily.
