Fraser Island Rainbow Beach Reviews
Explore FraserIsland in your own Roachmobeeeeel!...great. Jun 26, 2011
Fraser Island is an amazing place, despite cold/wet weather we still travelled around the island and (literally) dove right into it. I would recommend that this is a higlight for anyone travelling the east coast. The Island is amazing that is a no brainer.
What you should consider more carefully is who you book with and from what city you book it. The further north you go the cheaper it gets (i paid $400 in sydney and could have paid $250 actually in Rainbow beach) if its low season wait until you get there and book on arrival although you may need to wait for 1 day.
The second thing, DO NOT BOOK THROUGH FRASER'S ON RAINBOW. I spent 4 days in a 4X4 with an infestation of cockroaches. It was distugusting, bescuase we stored the food in the car (so the dingo's didn't get it) the roaches were all through the food and then transported to the cooking area. Not cool. Especially in a car full of sreaming girls!!
Then, as we left the island (after driving in the vehicles for 4 days) we were stopped by the equivelant to the Transport Police who ensure the vans are within the laws and are safe. OUr company was left with over $1000 in fines for faulty breaks and overloading as well as broken lights etc. Safe to say the cars were not!!!
To make matters worse when we got back to the company garage the owner spent about 20 mins whinging on that the Inspectors had it out for him and that there was nothing wrong with the cars before instructing us to clean then out!!! Which was serious insult to injury after the roach infestation. After the owners little speech I definately didn't feel I could complain about the state of the cars so i'll be a coward and say it on here!! GET NEW CARS AND A NEW ATTITUDE.
