Hello everyone!

My friend and I are leaving Brisbane at the beginning of August to travel up to Cairns and we've only got until 18th August to get there! We want to do a package including accommodation, a 3 day/2 night Fraser trip and 3 day/2 night Whitsundays sail. We've found a package with Travel Bugs 'Super Savers Package' with 12 nights accommodation, including Fraser Island and Whitsundays, for $389. We keep thinking this seems far too cheap when we see packages for just Fraser being arond $250.

Has anyone got any advise or recommendations on this deal or any others, as we don't really want to get conned and end up having a crap time and regretting taking this package!!!

Thank you!

Rhiannon ;)

Hi - The problem with those packages are that you get the 'cheapest of everything' including probably a crummy boat for the whitsundays, but if you can cope with that I think they're OK - we met people who did a package (admittedly more expensive than that!) and weren't too horrified. I think there tend to be lots of hidden charges, especially for Fraser Island, so find out about that.

I did the Travel bugs package of Fraser Island & Whitsundays for $250 we has an excellent time. OK so out boat wasnt exactly luxery but we had everything we needed and the crew were excellent.

Go for it - You'll have an amazin time.

I'm Jealous - Wish I could do it all over again
