Fraser Island Camping

It’s the world’s largest sand island! Located just 360km north of Queensland’s capital Brisbane in Australia, World Heritage-listed island K’gari Fraser Island attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to its shores each year because of its diverse landscapes and natural wonders.

From crystal clear lakes to lush rainforests, the global destination offers camping, cabin, resort and holiday style accommodation for its guests, and is home to many species of native wildlife, abundant water life, flora and fauna.

Named by its traditional owners, the Butchulla people, K’gari (meaning paradise) doubles as an airstrip and a beach highway, stretching 123km and spanning 166,000 hectares.

Built up over hundreds of thousands of years of tidal action, the oldest age sequence of coastal sand dune systems exist on K’gari. Some dunes are believed to be around 400,000 years old. Eco-adventures on the island include cruises discovering the untouched beauty of the remote western side, a 90km Great Walk adventure and guided or self-drive tours.

Camp A

The famous pure white silica sand and crystal clear waters of Lake Mckenzie makes it the crowd favourite for visitors to Fraser Island, and for good reason. The blues and greens of this perched lake also known as Boorangoora are endless. You’ll want to spend all day lounging around at this hotspot.

Camp B

On the eastern beach of the island lies Eli Creek. Each hour around 4 million litres of clear, freshwater is pumped from Eli Creek into the ocean. With a boardwark that follows the creek inland, this is the perfect spot for a swim (or float). Eli Creek is a regular stop over on some of the great Fraser Island tours available.

Camp C

The Maheno, the most famous of the Fraser Island wrecks, washed ashore just north of Happy Valley on 75 Mile Beach during a cyclone in 1935. Once a well-known trans-Tasman liner, today the hull now lies about 10km north of Happy Valley. The Maheno is a great piece of Australian history and is a must see for those visiting Fraser Island (K’gari).
