Glamping Fraser Island

Glamping on Fraser Island is the Perfect Opportunity to Relax and Unwind

Cathedrals On Fraser is home to one of the most pristine places for you to enjoy glamping on Fraser Island. If you’re unfamiliar with the term glamping, the easiest way to explain it is that it’s a combination of the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’.

Benefits of Glamping on Fraser Island

Fraser Island is a UNESCO World Heritage site for many good reasons – hundreds of kilometres of pristine sandy beaches and exquisite rainforests are just a couple. When you make a reservation with us to enjoy glamping on Fraser Island, we can almost guarantee you won’t want to leave. There are so many things for you to look forward to:

  • For those of you who are glamping for the first time, this will be a novel experience. Glamping, Fraser Island means you’ll enjoy the fresh air and plenty of natural beauty. Whether you’d prefer to stroll along one of the beautiful sandy beaches or take a walk through the rain forest, you will never be without something to do.
  • You can take advantage of your surroundings to learn more about the environment you’re staying in and spend quality time with your travelling companion. We have no doubt that you’ll welcome the change of pace.
  • The combination of fresh air and a little exercise is sure to help restore a healthier sleep schedule. In addition, spending time outdoors helps get rid of the stress that you take on in your daily life.

There is so much more that we could add to this list, but the best way for you to see is to come and experience it for yourself.

Tips for Planning Glamping on Fraser Island

You have a selection of accommodation to choose from when you stay with us at Cathedrals on Fraser. Our first recommendation would be that you investigate what kind of accommodation would be most suited to your needs.

  • You should remember to keep things simple. The whole point of glamping is that you can still connect easily with the great outdoors, without having to worry about setting up your own tented accommodation.
  • Make sure that you pack wisely. Summers are great but don’t forget to pack some warmer items in case the nights are cooler. One of the advantages of glamping on Fraser Island is that you’ll have more space available to pack a variety of clothing instead of having to fit items like sleeping bags and tents.
  • Do the maths and budget carefully. Glamping will cost more than regular DIY camping, but you can save money on other parts of your holiday to make up for this.

Fun Facts about Glamping Fraser Island

As with any accommodation, you’ll find various levels of glamping accommodation. You can start with a basic tent that has been set up for you, with basic beds and linen and work your way right up to luxury permanent tents or yurts with air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.

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.

In an emergency, dial 000.  If you don’t have mobile reception try 112. Help can be hours away, so carry a well-stocked first aid kit and medical supplies.
