The good news is there are plenty of options when it comes to accommodation on K’gari Fraser Island, and they are as diverse as the island itself. From bush camps under the stars to plush resorts, where to stay on K’gari Fraser Island will depend on what kind of a trip you want to have. Every option has its pros and cons but wherever you stay, step outside your front door (or unzip your tent) and you’ll be in paradise. So, you can’t really go wrong. Here are the options.
Camping and Glamping
If you really want to feel like a part of the island, night and day, then camping or glamping could be a great option. There are plenty of campsites on the island, 45 in total, from basic bush camps to well equipped sites with amenities such as showers and toilets. Take your pick from one of the many beachside camp grounds or head more inland and sleep under the trees. Some also have dingo fences for added peace of mind. Book in advance if you’re travelling during peak season.
If you like the idea of getting back to nature but not actually sleeping on the ground, then find yourself a glamping tent. Beachcamp Eco Retreat has 7 large comfortable glamping tents with proper beds and ensuite bathrooms. The canvas walls still mean you get to enjoy the sounds of the island as you settle down to sleep, and its location right on 75 Mile Beach means the sound of the surf is never far away.
Renting your own place
Accommodation on K’gari Fraser Island can also mean having the space and comfort of your very own house. There are a number of rental properties available on the island, some with epic views out to the ocean. Whether you’re travelling alone, with your significant other or a big group, there will be a property for you. Cabins tend to cost less than larger properties, unsurprisingly. Come equipped with everything you might need for your trip as it can be hard to find supplies on the island.
Resorts and hotels
When you really have to have all your home comforts, book in to one of K’gari Fraser Island’s top notch resorts. The best known is the Kingfisher Bay which has accommodation ranging from plush rooms to self contained units, not to mention no less than 4 swimming pools and a kids club. Eurong Beach may be slightly less fancy but still an excellent choice for families or anyone after a K’gari Fraser Island trip where a good night’s sleep is pretty much guaranteed.
Whatever choice you make when deciding on where to stay on K’gari Fraser Island will be a good one. At the end of the day you probably won’t remember where you laid your head at night, but will remember the amazing adventures you had every day on this stunning, one of a kind island.
