    There are just few cars admit on this island, because of nature, so make your reservations soon.
    We made the reservation almost one month before our travel and did not get a car we wished to have.
    If you wish to come with your car, it must be good 4 wheel drive.
    We made a very good experience with Assie Trax, right here on Frazer island.

    Before you make your drive on the beach, ask which time is low and high tide. During high tide you can not pass the beach, so it can happen that you would be cuted off the rest of the island.
    Have all the time watch with you and care how long your drive takes.
