Our 4×4 vehicles: Fraser, Moreton, Stradbroke and Bribie Islands
Driving on some of the more difficult parts of Fraser, Moreton, Strathbroke and even Bribie island is not a easy task. You will need all the help you can get from the vehicle you are using.
You will need lifted suspension (in fact this is recommended by Australian parks board) over size tyres will also help.
You don’t want to end up on secluded beaches and inland tracks with a vehicle that is not suited for the task at hand.
You will need a vehicle that does have enough ground clearance to travel on the inland tracks (some which can be really challenging at times).
We have Land Cruiser 8 and 6 seaters in our fleet. These vehicles have been costumed to ensure you will be able to reach your destination on the islands.
All our vehicles have been modified for 4×4 vehicle hire conditions on Fraser, Moreton, Stradbroke and Bribie Island. They all have after market, lifted suspension and also oversize tires as standard. This will ensure your comfort and safety while traveling on some of the more challenging terrain on the island.
Always find out from your hire company if they provide these features before you commit into hiring (it will save you a lot of trouble later on).
All our vehicles comes standard with max tracks included. You can use these in the rare case where you might bogged. We do supply snatch ropes as well.
We supply a air shark inflating tool as well to ensure tyres are deflated to the supplied PSI level, usually 14 PSI. Its not a commercial tool and should only be used to top up tyres while you are setting tyre pressure. It can be used in emergency situations to inflate tyre(s)
