Nothing special here, the logging industry ripped into Fraser Island, stole the timber from the indigenous people, kicked them out, just like what's happen ended in many other parts of the world and is still happening in places like S America and the Far East. I can't see the attraction status in the few old building that still survive, some... More

Taking your own 4WD to fraser island on the kingfisher bay barge can be a disaster. We took our 2015 jeep grand cherokee across last week and had the worst holiday experience ever. There had been no significant rain for months and the tracks were like talcum powder and downright dangerous. We were not told how bad the roads were... More

nice walk through the rainforest. area to have lunch - tables and chairs under the shade available lots of information provided via sign boards during the walk. Does not require physical exertion - can be easily walked at any pace. Walk via raised boardwalk to protect the creek and plants

This is the place that brings the history of Fraser Island to life. It is the original base for the loggers who exploited the great forest that was on Fraser Island. It even had a school there at one point. It now mainly consists of a few buildings with displays about the island's history and wildlife. It adjoins a sacred... More

We visited this on our 1 day Fraser Island tour, what a beautiful place! Our tour guide Steve was amazing he had so much knowledge of this place and the different types of trees that grow here!

This is a good experience and as the name suggests - it rains A LOT. It wont necessarily be raining on the beach/coast but it sure will be inland. it comes down in torrents, and is usually not cold. Very picturesque.

Our walk was not too long. Around 30 minutes. But there are som nice spots and a very exotic river running thru it. Wanted to see some more wilderness and animals. But none.

Excellent family camping area, hot showers are available for $2 rainforest is beautiful. Take bug spray and do not rely on solar power the rainforest blocks most of the sun out.

The rainforest walk is a beautiful path next to a crystal clear creek. You can do just small walk or go for a longer one to reach Lake MacKenzie for example. This is the only place in the world where rainforest grows on a sand island.

We stopped at a rainy day and we were the only people there, but usually it's bustling. Most people will end up passing through and it's a nice place for lunch. There's a beautiful creek and rainforest walk with a creek that has water so impossibly clear it looks like it's empty.
