I have conducting one week long photography tours on Fraser island for many years and staying at Eurong. However it is very difficult to drive for an hour in the dark to photograph the Maheno wreck at sunrise. This is my first stay at Sailfish and it was excellent. Managers, Brian and Chrissie could not do enough for myself and...

I would recommend Sailfish on Fraser EVERY SINGLE TIME. We arrived to Fraser after a long day of one thing after the other was going wrong just to get to our camping spot. Driving in the dark hoping for anywhere to stay you guys took us in extremely last minute at 7pm with a smile on your faces. It was...

Sailfish doesn't disappoint! New Managers Chrissie and Brian are extraordinarily helpful and accommodating. Having a brilliant hotel/general store 100m up the track is an easy walk and the food was far and beyond anything you could ever expect, for dinner and take out lunch next day (a hamburger, our friends wanted another!) We have Canadian's with us celebrating 60 &...

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment. Well where to start, the living/dining area is huge, bedrooms are fantastic, the kitchen is clean and well appointed, two bathrooms superb, the terrace large with good outdoor furniture, there is no a/c but all the rooms have ceiling fans and along with the ocean breeze makes for a comfortable environment. Spectacular beach and...

Such a wonderful surprise was this awesome accommodation! Huge two bedroom apartment. Only 9 in complex. All amenities (except air con) but that is understandable. Perfect location. Small store and bistro 100m away. Will be back for sure. Loved it.

It was our first trip to Fraser Island and we were so lucky to have Manager Christine look after us for our 4 days at Sailfish on Fraser. The apartment was large and was to be honest more than we were expecting. We were able to base ourselves here and explore the island quite comfortably. Christine looked after us and...

First time on Fraser and we are all glad we came to Sailfish. When you walk into the apartment you go wow I wasn't expecting it to be so big. They have everything you need and are situated in a good location. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return if we come again.

My partner and I had an amazing 4 day stay at Sailfish. We wish we had stayed longer. We were extremely happy with our 2 bedroom apartment which was larger than expected and a home away from home for us. Julie and Phil had such extensive knowledge of the island which made our days so enjoyable. We loved the friendly...
