Very relaxed atmosphere. Reasonable priced. Food ok. Kids menu. Little games area and pool close by. Not much variety on Fraser Island. Staff very friendly. Easy walk from hotel but also a shuttle service available. Bring mozzie spray!

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, a glass of wine, a fruit and cheese platter and watch the most beautiful sunsets.

Description
Combine The Sand Bar's Bistro casual dining experience with its stunning bush location and you've got a recipe for success. The Sand Bar's spacious decks allow glimpses of the Great Sandy Strait and poolside dining offers a taste of the Aussie lifestyle. The Sand Bar's made-to-order pizza and bistro menu hits the spot after a morning in the great outdoors... and best of all it's only a hop, skip and jump to two of the resort's inviting pools and a short stroll to the beach. Picnic in the trees and soak up the birdsong, down a cool drink in the shady deck or keep the kids amused in The Sand Bar's gaming arcade. The Sand Bar is perfect for a quick meal after a day's fun on the water. The Sand Bar is open seasonally, so in off peak and low occupancy times, it may not be operating.
