“Waddy Point Top Campground - Brilliant Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is a dingo-fenced Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QWPS) managed camp-ground located back from the main beach (2-3 minutes walk).

Well laid out, spotlessly clean facilities (toilets and showers) and one of the now few places you can have an open fire (in the provided fire pits) on Fraser Island.

Tips
Bring plenty of AUD$1 coins for the HOT showers. Bring your own firewood (no firewood from Fraser Island is allowed to be burnt).

There is phone/3G coverage in the campground from the nearby Orchid Beach village, and the Orchid Beach Store/Pub has hot pies, cold beer and other basic suppliers including fuel.

The beach at Waddy Point - SENSATIONAL!

One of the best 'bush' campgrounds we stayed at in Queensland on a recent trip...

“Fraser Island . The place to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Waddy Point is approx 1 km north of Indian Head which is a great fishing spot. To get there you four wheel drive along pristine beach front with rolling waves. You need experience to transverse the many gutters alond the beach

“Fishing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Excellent fishing here. Surf casting, boat rod or even a hand line will guarantee you a great catch for your dinner.
