This Easter, he’s back and he’s armed with plenty of tips for having a top Easter on Fraser Island (with pics by Eurong Beach's very own Zoe R).

So whether you’re staying on the sunset side of Fraser (at Kingfisher Bay Resort); tackling the surf side with a stay at Eurong Beach Resort or just heading across with Fraser Island Barges for a camping adventure with the family, you won’t want to miss these top tips from a Fraser Coast local.

If you are heading up Fraser's famous 75-Mile Beach, you may just want to chill out and wait until low tide (you really should, it's better for you, your car and the island). Those coming across from Wanggoolba Creek or Kingfisher Bay will have a different set of challenges – fun challenges - if the weatherman is wrong and we don't get a little rain this week.

Further north of Eurong Beach there are a couple of lesser known lakes that are well worth a visit. Lake Garawongera, out behind Happy Valley, is a gem and the road from it to Poyungan Valley is worth a drive for the more adventurous. Likewise, finding your way to Lake Allom (and its famous Fraser Island Short-necked Turtles - pictured above) is a rewarding experience.
3. Keep Cool And Keep Your Cool.
But you know what? Some just don't, or won't.
There is no driving environment more dynamic than the beach… so slow down, be aware, take a deep breath and drive to care for your precious cargo... despite what others are doing…. After all, you’re on holidays in one of the most beautiful spots in Queensland
4. Where Are Your Kids?

Kingfisher Bay's latest Ranger blog also talks about what behaviour to expect from Fraser's most famous locals in Autumn....
Dave reckons the Eurong Beach Resort Bakery’s Chocolate Croissants are in a class of their own… but at this time of year, you might want to add our freshly-baked hot crossed buns to your shopping list – it’s the best Easter treat you’ll get for 75 long miles.
Whatever you're up to this Easter, stay safe and stay happy.
