I drove to Fraser Island to explore the island by 4x4 and booked myself in for 4 days in a cabin. It was all very pleasant and throughly enjoyable, but I spent more time enjoying the island than I did the resort. What it does have however is a lovely feel to it, the staff are very friendly, and make you feel at home.
For those with a 4x4 wanting to explore the island for the first time I would say it is a good base but come prepared. You are able to get to most parts of the island and return within a day, however I was lucky enough not to get stuck, if I had this may not have been possible.
I would return, particularly if I were with family, but on an adventure I would have it as a stop on my tour of the island.
