Top 8 Stayz Accommodations In Fraser Island, Australia

Contributing Writer
| 5 min read

Located just off the southeastern Queensland coast of Australia, Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island that has an area of approximately 1,840 square kilometers (184000 hectares). As nature would have it, the sand has accumulated over thousands of year and also contains a form of fungi that can be absorbed as nutrients by plants. This has led to the growth of lush rainforests, mangrove swamps and eucalyptus woodland. In turn, this has allowed animal life to flourish on the island. It is no small wonder that Fraser Island was listed as a World Heritage site in 1992. If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful island, take a look at our list of homely and comfortable Stayz accommodations in Fraser Island, Australia, that you can relax in.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on March 13, 2023.

it is nice to be able to use the facilities at kingfisher bay although the pool was too cold to use due to it being a winter stay

the only suggestion forvtines like this that would have been helpful to us would be a dryer as was hard to get anything dry being so wet but probably unusual weather circumstances
the only thing i will say as a negative we're the many many rules / instructions in the arrival email, house guide at the property and the many laminated signs everywhere
regards sandra
we were 3 families staying and had ample room to spread out in the house
the verandah is a very nice area to sit and socialise
