CAMPING ON FRASER ISLAND

Fraser Island Beach Camping There are different options for camping on Fraser island:

EPA camping permits are required for all camping on Fraser Island except in private campgrounds. The 'open permit' allows the use of beach camping areas (except One Tree Rocks) which have no facilities and the small campground at lake Boomanjin (fenced, toilets).

You will need to bring a stove (campfires are not permitted on Fraser Island), food, water (not available in Beach Campsites), cooking equipment etc. Camping gear can be hired as a package with the vehicle (see below).

Formal campgrounds with toilets, showers, barbecues and fenced camping areas are Dundubara on the eastern beach and Central Station in the rainforest require pre-booking through the QLD National Parks website or call 13 13 04. One Tree Rocks (no facilities) also requires pre-booking. Waddy point campground is out of bounds as the most northern point for hire vehicle access is Champagne Pools.

If you are staying in the beach camping areas you can use the facilities in the formal campgrounds during the day - bring $1 coins for the shower.

As an alternative private campgrounds are available (pre-booking recommended).

When booking campsites you need to keep in mind the tides and have a rough idea of your itinerary. In general beach driving is not possible two hours before and after high tide. Depending on the day and the weather these times might need to be extended. Please contact us for further information.

 For families with young children fenced campsites are recommended.
