Fraser Island has a number of camping positions available around the island.
There are a large number of well established camping zones which offer facilities such as showers and toilets. These more established camping zones are mostly on the interior of the island at key features such as Lake Boomajin and Central Station.
If you plan to use these camping zones it is advisable to have a supply of gold cent coins on hand if you intend taking advantage of the hot water supply for the showers in some locations.
It is also recommended that you keep in mind that during busy periods such as Christmas, Easter and school holidays that these camping zones can become full very quickly. It’s always best not to leave finding such a zone till the last minute.
