    Fraser island 4WD hookups

    Doing some travel around the touristy parts of Australia in August. One of the places that the nopics wants to see is Fraser island. Would rather hire a fourbie for a few days than be stuck in some Unimog or other shitbox with geriatrics and Chinese tourists. Most hire places have a drive\and camp options. Already own top quality camping gear that will be coming along for the trip. Confident in beach driving as have done a bit of it in the past. Will a jacked up AU coon with knobby tires be suitable?

    Have done a bit of research and reading for the below mobs, though they all look the same

    http://fraserisland4x4.com.au/
    http://atlas4wdhire.com.au/vehicles/

    Understand that there may be ferry, Camping and driving permits along with fuel costs depending on the package and hire company


    Does anyone have hookups for the hire companies or personal experience?

    These guys get their 4x4's done at my mechanic. They are always in getting something done to them, like everyday or the week theres one or two of their 4x4's in.

    All these mobs charge a fortune because the customers beat the shit out of the cars. I'm over fraser all the time and i can tell you all the cars from these joints are beat to fuck and are on their last legs.

    Do you have to rent one up here, or can you rent one in bris and drive it up and back? If you can these guys have by far the nicest cars I ever see over there https://australian4wdhire.com.au/

    Just did this at Xmas time in a 350k beat up 100series that was pretty dear for a day trip. They donít let you drive on the beach two hours either side of high tide. It didnít mattter as we just did lake Mackenzie and Lake Birrabeen, the missus and kids were over the shitty slow crapped out no aircon Toyota by 3pm and we went to the resort and had beers.

    Extremely beaten up 80 series or a suzuki jimmy is what you will probably end up with.

    Had to punt this thing out of they way when coming back from lake mackenzie (not sure if link will work). Suspension fell out and the backpackers just chucked the keys and walked away (thanks cunts if you are reading).

    Drove past a couple of safa's that couldn't even get the 80 series into 4x4, probably because they selected low range while doing 80kmh on the beach.
