there is nothing we don’t know about planning a great holiday to K’gari and we love nothing more than sharing our knowledge with you!
So give us a call or send us a message, we just want to help you plan a island holiday you will never forget!
Our story begins with Mark as an adventurous young boy who spent much of his childhood exploring a magical island which he called K’gari but everyone else knew it as Fraser Island. Growing up, Mark spent his school holidays exploring this enchanted sand island which was just a short boat trip from where he lived in Maryborough. He spent his days chasing sand crabs, catching worms, fishing off the beach, and of course, like any kid does when they spend time on the beach, he built lots of sandcastles.
A quiet but adventurous kid, Mark could often be found just sitting under a tree taking it all in. He’d ask his parents all about the plants and animals he saw and if they didn’t know what they were he would find out. He was always hungry for knowledge and read many books about the island studying the regions history. Mark was fascinated by the natural history of the island but so troubled by the history of its peoples, a history that made some of his friends sad.
Little Mark eventually grew up, and by grew up we mean into a big kid, he never lost his sense of adventure. Eventually after teaching for a while he started his own adventure company and named it Drop Bear Adventures. Over the years our company has done many a thing that we are very proud of. We host regular beach clean ups, actively volunteer in the community and stand side by side with the Butchulla to protect the island and empower them to take on the challenges of business.
