Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re planning an EPIC adventure over to K’gari but you still have a few questions, take a browse below and see if we can answer them for you now! If your question isn’t on here no worries! You can contact us on the information below and one of our friendly staff will help you out!
Where do I leave my backpack and belongings whilst I am on K’gari?
Whether leaving from Noosa or Rainbow Beach, we’ve got that one covered for you. Simply leave your backpack or suitcase in our luggage storage room whilst you go on the tour – No dramas!
How do I get to Nomads Noosa?
Can I stay in my car or campervan outside Nomads Noosa before or after the tour?
No. Unfortunately we are not allowed to let customers sleep in vehicles outside the hostel.
Check out the Nomads Noosa website to book in your bed nights or check out some of the local campgrounds online. Just make sure you have this planned out in advance as Noosa accom gets bookes out quick!
Where do we sleep on K’gari?
We have an eco-certified campground set in an epic location right next to the beach. We provide all the gear (2 person tents, sleeping bags & pillows) you just rock up and we’ll sort out everything else. We’ve also got a dingo-fence around the campsite so they won’t come and say hello whilst we’re having a BBQ.
The campsite is set up in 4 person tents with beds and comfortable mattresses, pillow and linen included. A general store, amenities block with hot showers , flushing toilets are all surrounded by a dingo-fence. The beach is a short walk away for a tranquil sunrise or sunset moments.
I don’t have a driving license, can I still do the tour?
Absolutely you can still do the tour! There is always room for a navigator, a comedian, a DJ and a photographer. If you don’t wanna take on these responsibilities – That’s cool too, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
What happens if it is bad weather whilst I’m on K’gari?
Unfortunately as much as we wish we could control the weather – we can’t. Queensland is subject to cyclones and torrential rain.
Check the weather forecast and bring a waterproof jacket with you and we’ll still have an epic time. It is rare that we cancel tours in bad weather as we know most of our customers have tight schedules booked along the Coast.
Can I bring alcohol with me on the tour or do I buy it on the island?
Sure. We recommend you to buy your alcohol before the tour. No Goon (boxed wine) or glass is permitted on the tour.
We recommend anything in a can is the best way to go. Less bottle tops and broken glass!
HINT ALERT >> Buy your drinks in Noosa the day before departure as it’s way cheaper than on the island.
What should I bring with me to K’gari?
Is there any parking at Nomads Noosa?
Will there be toilets & showers?

Toilets? Of course.
Whilst we do pride ourselves on giving an authentic Aussie experience, we won’t make you go in the bushes…

We advise you to leave the Pantene Pro-V at home! We are going to take you swimming in crystal clear freshwater lakes daily. Natures best bathing experience!
K’gari Safari™ Tour
Absolutely with hot and cold water and flushing toilets a short walk from your camp.
I’ve heard about the Dingoes on K’gari. Are they dangerous?
I have a driving license but I don't know if I want to drive?
Are K'gari Tours™ party tours?
What is the recommended age range for passengers?
Is travel insurance required?
Queensland is subject to cyclones and flash flooding. Sometimes roads are closed, making it impossible to reach Rainbow Beach, Noosa or the Island. If the Island is deemed unsafe Queensland National Parks can close K’gari. The Island is remote and it can be very expensive if you need to leave in the event of an emergency and for these reasons we highly recommend Travel Insurance.

WHAT OTHERS THINK OF OUR TOURS
“Best trip so far, had an amazing time driving the 4x4s along the beach with a great group of people (TEAM BRUCE) and Chris the tour guide was great, he had so much knowledge about the island and explained the history behind every point. Would definitely recommend to anyone!”
“Had a blast. Everything was organized really good. The camp was clean and a nice vibe right by the beach. Our guide Phil was the best, he knew so much about Fraser Island and was a great cook. Driving the 4x4 was so much fun, would do it again every time. I met great people and saw so many great things in such a short amount of time. Can recommend it to anyone. Thanks 😊”
