Visiting Fraser Island can be quite hectic during peak times & often popular sites can be year round! Understandable given the beauty of the island! We camped at waddy point for 2 nights. There are 2 options 'beach' on the lower section & upper. We opted for beach. There were approx 3 other campers so 2 - 5 spare sites... More

Very good starting base to the northern point of Fraser Island. If staying in a group in camper trailers the sites are separated by approximately 30m with no communal area. Showers are good and cost $1, a good shower cost $2. Nice and shady for most of the day. Close access to the beach and a Bbq area. Dingo fenced... More

Another awesome spot on Fraser Island. Beautiful white sands and beautiful Sand dunes to climb and take in the breathtaking views as far as the eye can see. Another spot to try your luck at fishing and four wheel driving.

Fraser island is something different. From some great hikes to some fun 4x4 driving on the beaches. It is just a bit different from anywhere else. We got to see quite a lot of different wild life and there is even a shop about 2km up the beach. And a pub! with locals and everything. Your not suppose to swim... More

Waddy Point is quiet and pretty. The drive beyond Indian Head isn't too far and worth it if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. There is a walk/path you can do that goes up over the point to some pretty dramatic scenery. From talking to some local fishermen on my trip, it appears that Waddy Point... More

Such a cool place to see some amazing rock formations and the views are stunning. The swimming was nice as the waves weren't that big.

Waddy point has a great camping ground. Fishing here is great. Because a lot of people are fishing, Waddy and surrounds are your best chance to see a Dingo wandering the beach.

Waddy Point is a wonderful day out and the best thing is that the backpacker 4wd groups are not allowed past Champagne Pools so it keeps it that little bit less crowded.

We spent a week on Fraser Island with 3 kids (6,9,11). Camped the whole week at Waddy Point top campground. A fully fenced campground with great facilities. The showers ($1 per 3 minutes) were hot and strong. We felt safe due to other people around but were secluded enough to relaxed. The drive into waddy point is fun. The beach... More
