Moreton Island

Fraser Island


"Thankyou to Rhen, Clayton and Wayne for running a fantastic school camp. I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived, but was pleasantly surprised at the knowledge and experience of all three guides. Each day was full of activities such as kayaking, snorkelling, Mt Tempest walk, sand boarding and North point, which were all adapted to suit the students and the weather! A particular mention goes to Rhen who connected well with the students, and encouraged me to "have a go" at a few of the activities that I wasn't so sure about, for which I am now thankful! Overall, a highly successful camp and I have no hesitations recommending it."

"Had an amazing trip to Moreton Island. Definitely one to remember. You cant really compare the three Guides. Wayne was and all rounder and a great cook and a great fisherman. Clayton knew his flora and fauna very well. I very much enjoyed trying out some of the native passion fruit and the finding of pippies. Rhen was more of a young energetic guide. But he made it fun for all of us. The overall trip was incredible. Sandboarding in the desert on day 1. Hiking Mount Tempest, exploring North Point, watching whales from the lighthouse, swimming at Blue Lagoon and sandboarding again on Big Dunes on day 2, and snorkeling the Wrecks and Kayaking on day 3. There's also no roads so the 4wd makes it heaps more fun. I will definitely choose these guys again next time. Cheers guys for an awesome 3 days."

Hey Rob,

Just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for the weekend camping trip you guys put together. Students had a really good time, it was very chilled and friendly vibe throughout the tour. Clayton, Wayne and Dave were very patient with the kids and students liked the fact that we had plenty of time to enjoy in each stop and activity. You can tell they are all people’s persons and enjoyed what they do. Cookies and marshmallows at night were a really big hit, I’ve done it before in other trips and is a great impact on clients with very little money J so that was great. Wayne pumped up the BBQ with some caramelized onion and mushrooms which was really nice. Overall I think it was a very good experience, as a tourism professional I can see a few things where there could be room for improvement, like some food, eg. Sandwiches lunch could be a bit more generous. And guides could give a bit more commentary/information during the tour, since there was some dead time that could be used in your advantage.

But like I said, it was really enjoyable, very relaxed, and the guys were very helpful. I will definitely continue to promote this trip and I’ve been thinking on looking for the opportunity to do a Fraser Island trip sometime. Just hope that the numbers at the school work out.

Regards,

Jack
