**NEW DATES ANNOUNCED FOR THE END OF 2015** Fraser Island is the place where 4WD enthusiasts come to test the mettle of their four-wheel-drive on the world's biggest sand island... but tackling the tracks can be daunting for some drivers.

The track is conveniently located inside the confines of the Resort and is easily accessible as a day trip, or part of a longer stay. From novice to expert, the training track encompasses a wide range of skills and challenges including steep hills, broken ground, short jump ups as well as patches of very soft sand, and the inevitable vehicle recovery techniques needed for tackling Fraser.

This course is perfect for groups and all skill levels... check out some of the photos from a group of fab media gals who joined the course in early March.

And when the training's done, there's just enough time at the end of the day for a beverage at the Jetty Hut before boarding the return barge OR heading to your room and enjoying a night in World Heritage wilderness.
