Things to do on Fraser Island

 

Fishing– Fraser Island is one of the best surf fishing locations in the country for all-season angling. You can walk to the beach directly in front of Cathedrals and find some of the best fishing gutters on the island, and usually have an entire gutter to yourself in early morning and late afternoon. Whiting, tailor, swallowtail, bream, tarwhine, and mulloway are just a few types of fish you could reel in.

Whale Watching– From July to October you can spot humpback whales on their migration journey north from the beach or a look out.

Observing wildlife and bird watching– The campground is a great place to sit back and observe nature. Kookaburras are plentiful and goannas come out to explore the campground on a daily basis.

Wildlife and landscape photography– Capture the magic of Fraser Island on film!Bring a camera and have your own personal photo safari.

Sand Dune trekking– From the back of the campground, guests have private access to Corragin sandblow. It's about a 30-minute walk to the top, and if you're lucky, you might even come across some fulgurites, sand rods that form when lightning strikes the dune.

Beach walking - Stroll the beach to view the beautiful coloured sand pinnacles. The brightly coloured sand cliffs along eastern beach are sculpted into bizarre shapes by the elements, and are the structures after which Cathedrals on Fraser is named.

Watch the sunset and sunrise– From the campground, you're only a 400 metre walk to 75 mile beach or a 30 minute walk to the top of Corragin Sandblow. Both are beautiful spots to watch the sun come and go.

BBQ – Get everyone together and fire up the barbie. Our shop stocks an assortment of meats, sauces and other grilling essentials.

Relax and socialise around our Fire Pits - Just sit around the fire and enjoy the romantic ambiance and sounds of crackling wood burning. A perfect place to relax with close ones to reminisce, tell stories and enjoy life.

Eli Creek– The Largest freshwater creek along the east coast, with over four million litres of water flowing into the ocean every hour!

Indian Head– Named by Captain Cook in 1770 after his first sighting of the Buttchela people on Fraser Island. From the lookout you can usually spot a turtle or even a shark in the waters below.

Champagne Pools– Just north of Indian Head, these beautiful rock pools are filled with bubbling seawater and make excellent swimming holes at low tide!

Lake Wabby– Surrounded by a massive sand-blow, this is the deepest of the island's lakes.

Lake Allom– With the forest as a backdrop, this small and welcoming lake is home to many turtles, and great for an evening swim.

Lake McKenzie– One of the island's best-known freshwater lakes, McKenzie is a refreshing swimming spot and has good day facilities nearby.

Central Station– Originally established as a forestry township, this beautiful rainforest area features a boardwalk that follows Wanggoolba Creek. It's a great place to go for a bush walk and enjoy the Fraser Island forestry.
