Hi you will find all the info here Site Link
No. Campfires are prohibited on Fraser Island
This fire prohibition was implemented to:
prevent burn injuries
prevent escaped camp fires becoming wildfires
reduce rubbish, debris and environmental scars left by camp fire sites
reduce the risk of introduced pests
and diseases being brought in with fire wood
prevent impacts of firewood gathering upon local ecology.
The only exception to this prohibition is in the communal fire rings provided by Queensland
Parks and Wildlife Service at Dundubara and Waddy Point
campgrounds. Campers wishing to use these fire rings must supply their own clean, untreated milled timber for firewood and firelighters for ignition. It is an offence to collect living or dead plant materials in the national park.
