Fraser Island Accommodation
Resorts and retreats on the Great Sandy Island
Fraser Island accommodation is scattered across the 120-kilometre sand island, ranging from the budget-friendly Cathedral campgrounds to eco-chic Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village. The 4-star Kingfisher Resort has all the mod-cons that stand out against this rustic natural paradise, including pools, restaurants, Jacuzzis, tennis courts and shops.
Also on the ocean side of the island, Eurong Beach Resort is a comfortable 3-star stay and a perfect base for outdoor exploits like four-wheel driving and freshwater fishing. The spacious self-contained apartments are ideal for families or groups who have their esky fully stocked, while at Eliza Palms (a fellow 3-star establishment) you can BBQ the catch of the day for lunch before a dip in the naturally bubbling Champagne Pools, 15 minutes down the road.
The infinite, ancient dunes of Seventy Five Mile Beach where most accommodation is based offer unbeatable privacy, while the skirting Coral Sea bobs with dolphins, whales, dugongs, turtles and more. The uninterrupted white stretches of sand are flanked by sand-blown cliffs, wetlands, sparkling freshwater lakes and rainforest, boosting Fraser's World Heritage status and creating a diverse atmosphere for island adventures.
