    • Driving/staying on Fraser Island

      Fraser Island Mar 27, 2014 at 8:53 AM

      My husband, 3 children and I will be travelling to Queensland in November and would like to go to Fraser Island. We will have a rental car and will be staying on the Sunshine Coast (possibly in Noosa). Can we take our rental car to the island or are we better to walk on the ferry or take an organized tour? Not sure if we should go just for the day or stay overnight? Appreciative of any advice! Thanks!

      Daintree Rainforest Visit with a 1 year old

      State of Queensland Apr 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi VTers!

      I have been doing a lot of reading on the Daintree Rainforest. Little did I know that there are so many different areas to explore! It seems like these all offers different things to see in the rainforest, but my main concern is that we will have a 1 year old with us. I am trying to determine if there is an area that will be easier for us to visit with him. We will most likely have to carry him. As much as we would like to do a hike through the rainforest, I don't think that will be possible, but we would definitely like to see as much of the environment as we can.

      Cape Tribulation has caught our eye, but the Daintree Discovery Centre and Mossman Gorge Center also sound like they provide good options for traveling with a young child.

      We will have a rental car 4WD. 

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks so much, Kimberly

      2) Glass house mountain (1/2 day enough?)
      3) Fraser Island day tour (Which tour agency is recommended? But seems like alot of time will be spend on travelling as Caloundra is quite far out from Fraser Island). So might not go ahead with Fraser Island.
      4) Ginger Factory (1/2 day enough?)
      5) Blackall range
      6) King's Beach (1/2 day enough?)
      7) Eumundi Market (Wednesday AM), where to proceed next from Eumundi market?

      9) Noosa (What is recommended there?)
      Will be checking out on saturday early morning to catch a flight in Brisbane back to my home town.
      Therefore, would appreciate all your kind assistant on helping me to plan these few days itinernary so that I don't have to travel up and down aimlessly.
      p/s : I have already rent a car thoughout my journey from 10 days journey.

    • OTT - CAPE YORK

      by CLOSEYDOWNUNDER Online Now Oct 18, 2010 at 3:55 PM

      Can anyone please advise what the OTT is like these days and if it is advisable for a 4wd to travel ALONE on this track looking at probably next August/September unless you can advise a better time? I have had advice as to the Peninsula Dev Road, however would prefer the OTT if in fact this is OK. We are not wanting to join a Tag A Long tour as it would restrict us too much in regards to time spent in any one particular place. Please advise. Tx :)

    • CAPE YORK ON YOUR OWN

      by CLOSEYDOWNUNDER Online Now Oct 17, 2010 at 3:43 PM

      Hi there, am new to this so please bear with me....... The hubby & I are thinking of doing the Cape, (tip of Aussieland) next year. We are just wondering firstly when is THE BEST TIME to travel this area without too much bog down!!!!!, water, etc..., and if anyone has recently done the trip as opposed to 2004 or 2005??? We are looking more probably at doing this on our own, so what do we need to look at in regards to travelling, vehicle supplies etc., and what is the best route (or safest???)

      4WD boat transport.

      by petezoe Online Now Dec 2, 2006 at 7:19 PM

      Hi does anyone know of a boat that can transport myself and my 4WD from Cairns up to the tip of Cape York, so the trip is only one way back instead of two way.
      Time restraints unfortunatlly.
      Cheers Peter J
