Nowhere else has the ocean & highway at the bottom of the steps!! Homely units with most of the comforts of home but a much better view. Waking up to the sea each morning was bliss. The opportunity to catch fish or pipi every day to strolling with a dingo stick or just watching the 'tagalong' trekkers over a wine... More

I have stayed here a number of times & love it! It is virtually one of only s hand full of properties on Fraser that offer water views. The majority of accommodation is tucked in behind the dunes, this sits atop the dunes/rocky outcrop. Clean & comfortable with ample equipment to make your stay enjoyable.

Yidney rocks units are not the place to be if you want comfort! The best part of these units was the kitchen. Although, bigger pots and pans would have been awesome it's nothing major. The lounges were comfy and the view is amazing. This place definitely has the best piece of real estate on Fraser island. The units were cleaned... More

We stayed at Yidney Rocks Apartments early in 2015. I have to say i was quite disappointed. The onsite manager was rude when we arrived and when it was time to leave, everyone was packing the cars. The manager asked if the "ladies" could strip the beds so she could start washing the sheets. This was at 7.30am. She also... More

Yidney Rocks Beachfront units are in the perfect location for a seaside holiday. An easy drive along the beach from the ferry and close to Happy Valley, Eli Creek, Central Station and Lake Mackenzie to name a few. These are elevated beachfront units looking straight over the ocean. Sunrise photos and sunset drinks on the front lawn are a must... More

We stayed at Yidney Rocks for a week and although the weather was a bit inclement, we loved it. The fishing is amazing, it's almost as the fish want you to catch them ...
