Safety - Fraser Island Hiking takes safety seriously knowing K'gari is a remote wilderness. This is why hikers are not permitted to walk solo. We also use the Garmin Rino 2-Way Radio/GPS Navigator with Sensors for hikers to communicate with the guide or use in an emergency. These devices also have GPS navigation to locate you in an emergency.
"We took our Mum to see the whales to tick off an experience she has always longed for. Mum is almost 90 and in a wheelchair. The staff on Quick Cat were absolutely amazing and attentive making sure she had a wonderful time. Thank you so much loved every minute."
"Expert and passionate knowledge of Hervey Bay and its surroundings. Highly recommended."
"It was so easy to plan our trip and book online. We hired a 4WD and drove from Noosa to Fraser Island along the beach, it was the best thing I have ever done."

"We travelled through the Sunshine Coast and onto Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. I loved the hinterland and beaches, most beautiful place to hike & ride. Thank you “Nature Coast Australia”, can’t wait to visit again."
"It was so easy to see all the whale watching tours in one place and choose the right one for us. No where beats Hervey Bay for whale watching!"
"I have always wanted to go to Fraser Island and the day tour we booked was perfect, we want to come back for longer!"
Nick & Michelle
"My favourite tour was the remote west coast of Fraser Island. It was amazing and such a surprise how beautiful it is. Hervey Bay has some wonderful beaches & tours."
"I loved the Sunshine Coast Hinterland especially the quaint village of Maleny, lovely shops & food. The view to the Glasshouse Mountains is spectacular, next time I will hike them."
"We loved our trip to Lady Elliot Island, the reef is healthy and there are heaps of large turtles, manta rays and lots of fish to see when snorkelling, we didn't want to leave."
