About the neighbourhood
Fraser Island is World Heritage listed and can only be accessed by 4wd vehicles.
75 mile beach on the eastern side of the island is great for fishing (catch whiting, dart, flathead, tailor, jewfish). Tailor season runs from June to November and is a great time to visit if you are a keen fisherman.
Explore the beautiful lakes on the island. Spend the day swimming at beautiful Lake McKenzie.
Another great area to swim and explore is Eli Creek. The formation of the creek changes all the time.
The top end of the island has Indian Head and Champagne Pools (another amazing swimming spot).
Explore Central Station with its magnificent rainforest. Have a picnic lunch at one of the many tables and then take one of the signed walks, that vary in duration so your are sure to find one suitable for you...
