Blog 5 Top Reasons To Choose Glamping On Fraser Island


Glamping on K’gari, more commonly known as Fraser Island, is the largest sand island in the world and delivers to every guest a completely unique experience. Situated North of Brisbane, off the Queensland Coast it is accessible from Rainbow Beach and Hervey Bay. You cannot fight the elements but no matter the weather we promise you a perfect stay! There are numerous accommodation options from basic camping to busy resorts but we guarantee to deliver something different at The Beachcamp Retreat on K’gari. Read up on our top 5 reasons on why you should choose the glamping option when staying on K’gari.


  1. Meet and Greet

Sensitively designed The Beachcamp Retreat delivers the most perfect atmosphere for you to spend time with family and friends, and make new ones throughout your stay. Our large open communal kitchen and lounge space with long dining tables and a comfortable chill out area enables your whole group to socialise whether cooking, playing board games or eating dinner. On occasions you may even bump into our cheeky resident goanna, don’t be worried; our friendly team is always on hand to shy him away! We welcome families and friends, couples and travellers, and often find that many of our guests leave having made great new companions at the end of their stay.


  1. Dine

With a fully equipped kitchen area including 2 large barbeques, gas hobs, heaps of cutlery, plates and of course cups, for those all important beverages, you can rest assured that all you have to bring is drink and grub. We highly recommend that you plan to shop before getting on the island as prices are on the high side over here. But that said if you forget to pick up any of the basics there is a grocery store just 200m away in the small township of Eurong.


  1. Explore and Adventure

Now hopefully you’ve headed to K’gari for some exploration and adventure! And quite honestly we believe there is no better place for it! With the combination of 4wdriving on the beach and inland tracks, jumping into pristine lakes, cool creeks and the Champagne Pools in addition to wonderful sand dunes, beautiful wildlife and stunning rainforest prepare to be in awe of this certain paradise! There is so much to see and do and as we’ve lived here for many years we can assist you in planning the perfect itinerary to make the most of your stay!


  1. Unwind

Situated just 100m from the beach and with the most stunning sea views our garden is a large space perfect for unwinding at the end of the day. Bring dinner out to the lawn, read a book in a hammock and let the kids play behind the safety of the dingo fence. We are also lucky enough to be able to offer evenings by our campfire, chopped wood ready for you to enjoy some chatter, toasting of marshmallows and star gazing! And if you are lucky you may even bump into co-owner Mark who can treat you to the sounds of the traditional didgeridoo!
