Fraser Is­land

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks with Kids - - Queensland - www.vis­it­fraser­coast.com

Mak­ing its name as the largest sand is­land in the world, Fraser Is­land is 123 kilo­me­tres of pris­tine beaches and unique rain­for­est land­scape... all just a four-hour drive north of Bris­bane. But what makes it even more spe­cial is that it’s all only ac­ces­si­ble by 4WD... or boat.

Camp­sites are scat­tered through­out the is­land which you can book up to six months in ad­vance. When trav­el­ling with chil­dren un­der 14 years old, for their safety it’s best stay in des­ig­nated camp­grounds that are guarded with dingo- de­ter­rent fences for pro­tec­tion. All the of­fi­cial camp­grounds on Fraser in­clude gas bar­be­cues, sinks for wash­ing dishes and coin- op­er­ated show­ers (some with hot wa­ter).

While on the is­land en­joy the serene sur­rounds... per­haps with a spot of 4WDing, as the is­land has plenty of tracks to keep your fam­ily oc­cu­pied. Un­for­tu­nately, swim­ming on the is­land’s beaches isn’t al­ways rec­om­mended due to sharks and the lack of life­guards, how­ever, there’s Lake Wabby which makes a per­fect spot for a fam­ily dip or the ex­tremely pop­u­lar and stun­ning Lake McKen­zie.
