Easily, there are some harder inland tracks where you need a bit f ground clearance but the usual tourist tracks are no problem. Also need to stay below the high tide line, above that it's pretty soft and boggy.

Just got back from round trip from Canberra to Cairns via Jambo. We did Fraser Island on the way for the first time ever.

There's people there driving x-trails and similar, and others towing trailers, so no jeep is going to have a problem.

Just make sure you air your tyres down. We had to pull a prado out of the sand in the first 200 metres of track, who still had his tyres on 45psi. I just took a snatch strap, shackles, compressor and tyre guage.

Sand on inland tracks is very very soft, so just keep up some momentum and you wont have any troubles. A very interesting place to go. We only had a day to spend there, but would be worthwhile devoting a bit more time than this if you can.

I used to do Fraser in my stocko Feroza. Never got bogged, dragged plenty of others out though.

I reckon Fraser can change very quickly too, just depends on how busy the tracks are and what the weather conditions are like. It always seems to rain when I go there so perhaps the tracks are a bit easier being compacted n all.

Or maybe Feroza's are under rated ...

The XJ is heading there next year for the Toyota Fishing comp. that should be great and can't wait.

just got back from Fraser Yesterday and the tracks were very soft in places (nothing that couldn't be conquered with appropriate tyre pressures however)

Saw a few XJs getting around, no problems.



and that was my last trip for 2004.
