Hey Everyone,
My Partner and I are thinking of taking the kids up to Fraser for a day trip on the last weekend of the Easter Holidays , he is a little unsure though of going over alone, we have plenty of experience beach and off road driving so I don't see a problem and I expect that there will be a large number of people there, just the same I'd like to know if anyone else also thinks that this should be done with a group or we are fine to go alone.
Thanks in Advance..

You'll be perfectly fine. The majority of Fraser is easy beach driving. A doddle for someone with experience.

But yes it will be busy; VERY, VERY busy! Make sure you get back to the barge in plenty of time as there will be a very,very long queue..

Everything about Fraser is a bit of a mystery right now... I was supposed to be over there tomorrow and Friday, but the Island is closed. (rescheduled for a fortnight's time).

You may find that the beach has been flattened and rocks become exposed, that won't neccesarily stop you, but will limit your beach travel times.

As for going on your own... you certainly won't be on your own, not over the Easter period.

Lower your tyre pressures (correctly), drive to the conditions (you said that you have experience), and enjoy yourselves...

Cheers

Dave

Thats right , who knows how fraser will end up after this . My hope is that the trees will be washed from double island/ rainbow beach and i can once again travel from tewantin to fraser along the beach . I suspect though that there wont be much of a beach anywhere after this .

and whatever you do, don't leave Fraser on Easter Monday to go home at least toward Brisbane, you could walk the whole way faster.

may be a good idea to check DPI first,as easter is only a few weeks away & i did hear today that Frazer is closed to public for the following month due to "Hamish".
just remember,no fires,no food left unattended,no feeding dingos,no food on lake McKenzie,no drinks on lake McKenzie,no parking in "tour bus" area,no walking or kids having fun on sand dunes,& most of all NO FUN have a nice trip !!!!!
but really,no prob's for you on the beach or tracks
