What's the Difference between the 'Experiences' and the 'Car Hire'?
Our Experiences are fully guided “Tag-Along”-Tours and prices are all-inclusive. This means you will be following a set itinerary accompanied by one of our amazing guides who will pick you up and drop you off from anywhere on the Sunshine Coast and provide morning tea/coffee and lunch. Tour prices also include all other costs such as fuel, insurance, National Park and cleaning fees. You will get the chance to drive the Jeeps and each tour will take between 6 – 8 hours.
Our Care Hire option does not include a guide or food. We are happy to suggest places to go but you are flexible to drive anywhere you like (unless excluded in our rental agreement). We offer different hire periods from 5-hour-hire to overnight hire.
What is a Tag-Along-Tour?
Our guided Experiences are run as so-called “Tag-Along-Tours”. This means you will be able to drive a Jeep as part of a convoy of at least two Jeeps. The first Jeep will be driven by our amazing tour guide who will be leading you, following a set itinerary, and the other Jeeps will “tag along”.
What's the difference between the 'RAW' and 'EXPLORE' Experience?
Our RAW Experience is for those that want to do some next-level 4WDriving, crawl through narrow passages and climb up steep rocks. Get the revs up, get muddy and master some of the steepest and hardest climbs the Sunny Coast hinterland has to offer!!
Our EXPLORE Experience is more laid-back and for those who want to explore the region and do some easier off-road driving to go off the beaten tracks and discover hidden natural gems with amazing views and great photo opportunities.
You can join either tour, no matter what your 4WD-experience-level is.
Who can join the guided Experience-tours?
Both, the RAW and EXPLORE Experiences, are available to anyone who is at least 25 years old and holds a full manual driver’s licence which is either issued in Australia or is an international driving permit or approved translation into English. You must have no less than 12 months driving experience but you are welcome to join out tour without any prior 4WD-experience.
Feel free to Contact Us if you are unsure about your licence or experience.
Can anyone hire the Jeeps?
You and any other authorised driver must be at least 25 and not over 75 years of age and have no less than 12 months driving experience to hire one of our Jeeps. You must hold a valid manual driver’s licence which is
- issued in an Australian state or territory or an international licence (with a valid International Driving Permit or an approved translation into English if the licence is not issued in English)
- appropriate for the class of the Vehicle
- not subject to any restriction or condition. This means learner drivers and provisional and probationary licence holders can not hire our Jeeps.
Are there any additional fees?
Our guided Experiences are all-inclusive. This means you pay AUD $490 per Jeep which includes the guided tour, pick-ups and drop-offs, food and water and all other costs such as National Park fees, insurance and fuel. There will be no extra fees and you can share a Jeep with up to 3 other people which brings the all-inclusive price down to ONLY $122.50 per person.
Our car hire prices vary depending on the places you want to go and the duration you want to hire the Jeep for. There are set prices for set durations and visiting certain locations may incur additional fees. Please visit our Car Hire page for a full price-overview. The rental price will be paid on pick-up. You will pick the car up with a full tank and return it back with a full tank. This means you will have to pay for the fuel you used, in addition to the car-hire price.
