waddy point camping

We are heading to fraser in march next year. We have a 100 series landcruiser and are going to tow a jayco campervan. We are thinking about staying at waddy point but can't find any info about the facilities there and if we need to book. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've got to be honest with you, I don't think I'd attempt to tow a campervan to Waddy Point. The Indian Head bypass and the road from Middle Rocks to Waddy Point are generally very soft sand.

The Indian Head Bypass, which is your only option around the headland from Eastern Beach, has steep sections. While there are wooden slats to assist with traction, we have had the displeasure of being stuck on that road for a couple of hours when someone else attempted to get over while towing a boat. They got over eventually but it required the assistance of numerous people to do so. You should have seen the queue of 4WDs stuck behind them!

If you must take a campervan then I would strongly recommend finding a camping area along Eastern Beach. Unhitch then go off and explore in your 4WD.

Check the EPA website for information on camping and making bookings: …qld.gov.au/parks_and_forests/…

Condition reports are also updated on this site regularly. It's definitely wise to check the reports closer to the time of your trip.
