There are different options for camping on Fraser island:
QPWS camping permits ($6.55 per person per night) are required for all camping on Fraser Island except in private campgrounds.
Formal campgrounds with toilets, showers and fenced camping areas are Dundubara on the eastern beach and Central Station in the rainforest. There is also a small fenced campground at lake Boomanjin. Beach camping areas on the easter Beach are divided in zones and have no facilities. All campsites require pre-booking through Fraser Magic, the QLD National Parks website or call 13 13 04. Waddy point campground and camping zones 8-9 are out of bounds as the most northern point for hire vehicle access is Champagne Pools.
