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.

Where: Kingfisher Bay Resort (Driver training track)
When: Monday, December 08 
Time: From 0645 (ex Hervey Bay mainland) for 7 hours (or, if you're on Fraser, meet at Kingfisher Bay's reception)
Price: $510 including GST
What's Included: Return barge transfers from River Heads to Kingfisher Bay Resort; Training for 2 drivers (Children are FOC for training) on our exclusive track; Lunch at the Maheno Restaurant for 2 people.
How to book: Dave and the team from Australian Offroad Academy can answer any questions and can also assist with room rates at either Kingfisher Bay Resort OR Eurong Beach Resort if you're planning a sleepover.

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.
