My family and I have just left Fraser and Eliza Fraser lodge and there were sad faces all round. Nick and Ellen have created a one of a kind experience where truly special family memories are made. From all the day trips with Simon who works with Nick and his guests to the amazing food and evenings spent around the fire - we are looking at just how soon we can return. Thank you Nick, Ellen and Simon for such an awesome time. Oh and the bonus of the night spent at the club watching the State of Origin won’t be forgotten either :)

We had the best stay on Fraser Island. The house is really nice, we loved having drinks around the fire pit. Nick is a great host, really good cook and we had amazing adventures discovering Fraser Island with Simon. Just perfect. Will definitely go back.

I would prefer not to write a review as I really don't want to share this hidden Gem and keep it to myself .... very selfish .... What a fantastic location with the most amazing views. Nothing is too much trouble for Nick. His culinary skills are excellent serving the very best of fresh food. Simon is pretty informative and seems to enjoy driving people to out of the way spots. All in all, a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. Well worst the trip!

Nick was brilliant. A great cook, exceptional guide and not a bad story teller. We (3 Adults and a 5 year old girl) went here for my wife's 40th and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. Nick's day trip partner Simon was also great fun, and really helped us make the most of our time here. Couldn't recommend it more, especially for a family looking for a bit more of an adventurous trip away.

Eliza Fraser Lodge was our base this month for a 4 day experience on Fraser Island, the unique island off Queensland coast, and the largest sand island in the world. A short plane ride from the mainland, this lodge is based at Orchid Beach (general store, small pub and fuel) at the island's northern end. The settlement has its own its own airfield . We however elected instead to drive the length of the beach for 90 kilometres, after arriving on the island by car ferry from Rainbow Beach, in our Lexus LX470, 6 passengers and light luggage. We were met at the end of the beach drive (at Indian Head) by our friendly and engaging host, Nick, who guided us over the trail to the lodge, a beautiful and expansive home built by our host, with northerly views over the trees to the Pacific Ocean. A terrific way to start our stay. With the 6 of us adults, the Lodge bookings were blocked out for our exclusive use. The lodge provides a Toyota Troop Carrier to take guests on day trips and points of interest with our guide/driver, Simon. Great fun. Both Nick and Simon have fantastic local knowledge and experience, and plenty of stories. The bedroom accommodation consisted of 4 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so each of our couples had a bathroom for their use. Living areas (indoor and outdoor) were generous with expansive views. The lodge has a sustainability focus in its operations, but nothing was spared in terms of services. The area is remote in terms of technology, but mobile phone and internet access/reception were available via Telstra. But who needs a phone here anyway! The local seafood and other local produce prepared by Nick were sensational, and the meals first class and entertaining. Wildlife was a feature on our day trips - breaching whales, fish, rays, dingoes, birdlife. Returned back to the mainland (Rainbow Beach) on day 4. A great stay, and a special and personal experience. I'm really glad we chose this destination.

If you are seeking a special holiday and to explore the northern end of Fraser Island through the eyes of a local, look no further than Eliza Fraser Lodge. Nick and Ellen have created a unique experience, and their attention to detail ensures that your stay is perfect in every way. Nick is an amazing cook, host and guide who tailors the holiday to suit his guests. His lifelong connection to the place is incredible, and his knowledge vast. The Lodge is very peaceful amongst a beautiful treed setting with sea views from the upstairs balcony, and you cannot help but feel relaxed from the moment you arrive. Nick is also a fantastic driver in all conditions and he takes you to places tourists rarely see, off the beaten track. Would absolutely recommend!

We had the most amazing stay at Eliza Fraser Lodge. Nick was a fantastic host and really welcomed us in to his home. Eliza Fraser Lodge has great views and is luxury in paradise. Nick took us out in his 4WD and showed us all the local sites and gave us lots of local knowledge too. If you are looking for a luxury escape to Fraser Island visit Nick and stay at Eliza Fraser Lodge Darren Rogers

Set to the north of pristine Fraser Island. Purposeful and comfortable beach lodge. Nick as other reviewers have noted is a really marvellous host and excellent chef. The fire pit set into the lounge area was a highlight. Fantastic venue for our group of 9 men who took out the lodge for 5 days.

We had an amazing stay at Eliza Fraser Lodge. Nick is an excellent host, serving delicious food and he was endlessly kind and patient with our kids. What really makes this place amazing is the tours, either Nick or his guide Simon will take you out to areas of the island you might otherwise not experience. As there is only one group staying at a time he tailors these around the weather that day and what everyone wants to do. We had a magical time sliding down sand dunes, fishing, swimming in creeks and visiting the beautiful little corners of this island. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Eliza Fraser Lodge is situated at the northern end of Fraser Island, very close to Orchid Beach. Luckily at the time of booking Ellen was super helpful and advised that the best way to travel would be by air & recommended Air Fraser .. who fly direct to this very beach. The flight was exhilarating & Air Fraser offered to store some of our surplus luggage for our 3 night stay to help luggage allowance. Eliza Fraser Lodge is run and fully catered by Nick, a charismatic ex-builder from the Gold Coast, full of knowledge & interesting stories of the island which he has known since a youngster. We were blown away by the beauty of the island and the vastness of its beaches... driving down it’s 75 mile beach at 80kph (yes they have speed limits to this effect).. the wildlife is special and surprising, all bathed in that beautiful fresh Fraser Island light. Nick not only proved to be a great host but a good cook too with a series of wonderful meals. Being a veg/pescatarian & gluten free I am aware of how difficult this can be to accommodate but Nick worked around this, even baking gluten free bread - which was delicious! We loved the locally caught fish including Moreton Bay Bugs (prehistoric lobsters to you & I), as well as his veg lasagne.. This is not a place to stay if you want to go to fancy restaurants every night, however it’s a very special experience away from the backpackers. Nick is ably assisted by neighbour & good friend Simon who took us on a tour down to Eli Creek and the Maheno, a 1930s shipwreck. Simon has an eye for unusual wildlife too pulling a large mud crab out of the sand with deft handling! Frankly we couldn’t fault our stay - we had a spacious room which was insect free due to the way it had been constructed.. although you certainly need a good supply of Bushman anti-bite for the evenings. Thanks Nick & Simon we enjoyed a very privileged long weekend.
