We stayed at Cathedrals over the long weekend. The permanent tent was excellent and kept dry all weekend during the rain. No hot water in 2 of the amenities blocks so all guests had to use the 3rd. According to staff this had been a problem for a few weeks and it wasn't their problem! Bad attitude from staff who... More

My husband and I decided to give this a go. We booked 3 nights at Cathedrals and then 3 nights at the Kingfisher Bay Resort. We only dealt with the owner - she was lovely, informative and obviously very passionate about not only their investment, but Fraser Island and its dingo population. We booked one of the tents and were... More

Had a wonderful three day stay at a cabin in cathedrals. The property was neatly maintained. The cabin had everything needed and the girl at the store was always friendly and knowledgable. Would stay again :)

After reading some of the reviews on this site, I was not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised, from the friendly staff too the regularly cleaned bathrooms. Ok- the staff at the desk / shop seem to be backpackers most of the time, so I expect the reception varies depending upon who is there. However the staff which looked after... More

We booked a cabin for 4 person with kitchen inside and restroom outside. It was ok and clean, the restroom was also acceptable clean. We experienced that the owners/staffs were helpful. She lent me a phone because we had some problems with our 4wd rental. I also borrowed it to call our car rental. At the end she grumbled a... More

My husband and I stayed in one of your 3 people cabins, 12 - 15th March. The nightly tariff was somewhere in the vicinity of $180. The cabin had lights that didn't work as well as an exhaust hood that neither worked or lit up. No where to hang clothing, no can opener? in the kitchenette. One double power point... More

Biggest mistake was booking a tent at Cathedrals. The owners would make great housing commission flat designers. They would make heaps of money for the government. They know how to design & plan so people are packed in. In fact, they should move the Australian detention centre from Naru to Cathedral it's set up ready to go. I paid for... More

Don't go. We had Christmas there and booked one of thier already set up permanent tents on a timber deck with a deck. The deck was a step. We arrived to find the Tents were in one big circle facing inwards towards each other and I measured that they were approx. 30 centimetres apart from each other. Beside us was... More
