The permanent tents are old and very ran down, the beds inside them are uncomfortable the springs are practically come through the mattress would be more comfortable sleeping on the floor! The amenties are pretty dirty and again ran down, the woman who I spoke with about my concerns was very rude and abrupt. Would expect more for the price... More

Arrived home this afternoon from Cathedrals on Fraser. The "glamping tent" is there empty if anybody wants it ..... we left a day early, so put out by the experience that we simply came home. Firstly, I must say the staff were lovely. No problems there. However, the place is simply disgusting. The facilities are old and broken down, in... More

This was our first visit to Fraser Island. We camped at a few places but the highlight of our camping was Cathedrals. It is well situated more or less in the middle of the long eastern beach. Access is from the beach and pretty good. The camping sites are beautiful!. They are large and shady with lots of shade. The... More

I booked to stay here. The night before I left my elderly mother fell and badly injured herself. I understand the company has a refund/cancellation policy but I am unsure how I give them 14 days notice that an accident is going to occur in 13 days time. I was more than willing to accept a credit for another time... More

If anybody is thinking of booking and staying in any of Cathedrals permanent tents judged on the website pictures, "DON'T". My wife and I did much to our sorrow, arrived at 2.30pm and were directed to our tent. What a disgusting, stinking mess it was, nothing like as portrayed in the pictures,we took one look at each other and jumped... More

Brilliant family holiday in an Australian wonderland. All facilities provided from cabins to tented sited to powered sites and then non powered. After 3 great trips we have booked for the next 2 years. In addition to what you would expect the camp ground has great community cooking facilities including fridges and freezes which you need when taking all food... More

My family and I spent 2 weeks in our camper trailer here on a powered site. Excellent service from all staff plus their shop has everything at fair prices. Excellent location and central to all of Fraser's icons. We're already planning to come back!

What a great location - our first stay on Fraser was an outstanding adventure - starting a little rough when we arrived on time and expecting an immediate check in, we discovered that our site was still occupied - with the inhabitants nowhere to be found Peter and Cathy went to extraordinary lengths to find us another spot in the...
