Very good starting base to the northern point of Fraser Island. If staying in a group in camper trailers the sites are separated by approximately 30m with no communal area. Showers are good and cost $1, a good shower cost $2. Nice and shady for...More

Another awesome spot on Fraser Island. Beautiful white sands and beautiful Sand dunes to climb and take in the breathtaking views as far as the eye can see. Another spot to try your luck at fishing and four wheel driving.

Fraser island is something different. From some great hikes to some fun 4x4 driving on the beaches. It is just a bit different from anywhere else. We got to see quite a lot of different wild life and there is even a shop about 2km...More

Such a cool place to see some amazing rock formations and the views are stunning. The swimming was nice as the waves weren't that big.

Waddy point has a great camping ground. Fishing here is great. Because a lot of people are fishing, Waddy and surrounds are your best chance to see a Dingo wandering the beach.

Waddy Point is a wonderful day out and the best thing is that the backpacker 4wd groups are not allowed past Champagne Pools so it keeps it that little bit less crowded.

I wouldn't say dangerous though a high degree of caution is needed when getting over cuttings. Allow time between each vehicle when leaving beach to enter cutting. Often a bogged vehicle will be stuck just out of view & you... More
