Fraser Island question - again!!

Postby mawilkinson » Mon Sep 10, 2007 7:53 pm

Hi All

Myself and three mates want to do fraser for 4 days. a very short trip but it is all we could get at the same time. Could you suggest a camping area/place to base ourselves?
None of us have been there before. Probably just take 1 truck and minimal gear. Just want to do a bit of exploring and fishing. Any suggestions?

Are you self sufficient or do you need facilities like shower and toilet.

If it was me I would go to Dundaburra. It's a fair way up and you are within easy reach of Indian Head. The campground is quite good and does have showers albeit you need a few 20 cent coins. Below is a link to a map as well as the Fraser Island EPA Website

We have stayed at Dundabarra, good facilities, also camped on beach no facilities, but you can easily walk to beach and fish.

If you're only going for 4 days then what on earth do you need a shower for?

We camped recently at Dundaburra, brilliant facilities - although you need $1 coins now!
We went with little kids so wanted a dingo proof campsite.
Dundaburra is central to great tourist areas.
