“a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a hidden gem amongst the beauty spots of the island. the lakes are spectacular and one could miss this area but it's really worth a visit. There is a large display about the logging days (thankfully over) and an amazingly beautiful rainforest stream. A must for photographers and it is so peaceful there.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Driving through this rainforest is "like being in Avatar" according to my children! The sounds of the birds and the smell of the beautiful fresh ocean air is truly uplifting. The track was very rugged but we had fun bouncing around in the car and managed not to get bogged! Absolutely sensational place!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The beautiful rainforest of fraser island is so unique. We did two walkes wround central station one took us there and took around 45 minutes and one that took us back out where we walked for another 30 minutes. At central station we got to try some of the beautiful sweet creek water. So fresh and beautiful!

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is truly one of the really special places on earth with its towering trees and easy access to the lakes and other attractions such as walks on the Island. After a number of day tour visits this was the first time I spent overnight in the campground. Some sensitively developed accommodation in this area would have to be a massively popular option to experience the peace and grandeur of nature.

You can see and smell the real nature. You can learn a lot about the rainforest. You will find many ancient ferns and old trees.
