What You Can Expect From Cathedrals On Fraser Regarding Fraser Island Fishing

Many local fishermen flock to our island annually to become one with nature while relaxing by the ocean with lines dipped into the water, success only a bite away.

  • We have the perfect location on the eastern side of the island. The geographical layout of the eastern side of Fraser Island turned it into a favourable spot for fishing as the surf gutters there form a great shelter for many schools of fish.
  • The best fishing spots are located right in front of our camping grounds. It is the most convenient location when you want to be off to the waters at dawn. The best times of the day to wet your lines with tremendous success is during dawn and dusk, although you are bound to be busy reeling in the lines during the entire day under these perfect conditions.

Fishing isn’t limited to a particular season. You can pitch your tent on our grounds any time of the year and expect to have a very rewarding fishing trip.

General safety information

Safe Driving on Fraser Island

Aim to travel two hours either side of low tide wherever possible. Ensure you are not driving on the beach two hours either side of high tide.

It is recommended that you reduce tyre pressure before you get to Fraser Island. This is even more important if you are towing (don’t forget to reduce your trailer/caravan tyre pressures too!) If you are an inexperienced driver or towing a trailer or caravan, we recommend taking the Mantaray barge out of Rainbow Beach to avoid the need to take an inland track. Generally, the eastern beach route will be a smoother journey. During dry weather the sand at Inskip Point can become very soft and vehicles can easily get bogged getting on and off the barge.
