Waddy Point was worth the drive to the near the top of the island. It was beautiful and a welcome refreshing dip. Plenty of people fishing so must be a good place for fishing.

Another awesome spot on Fraser Island. Beautiful white sands and beautiful Sand dunes to climb and take in the breathtaking views as far as the eye can see. Another spot to try your luck at fishing and four wheel driving.
