On a trip last week to Fraser Island we had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful lakes and the peacefulness of the island..until we got to Lake Birrabeen.

On arrival we found a big family group had their portable stereo turned up soooo loud you could hear it from down at the water all the way from their spot trampling the trees. What made me cranky was that that they were not even listening to it, but down in the water. The whole of the beach could hear it.
Plus they could have played something better than PINK as well for the whole 2 hours we were there !

Can people not consider others and have their music just a bit quieter - or how about just enjoying the lovely sounds of nature( maybe plus the occasional bleating of our two children )

Yep, don't ya just love them, go all the way into the bush or remote location, set up camp, and on and up goes the stereo. Why bother going there if you need that sort of decibelic association with suburbia?

I categorise them as the same as the idiots who also travel to remote areas, take their food etc in packaging, but for some obscure reason carn't take the packaging back home or to a proper disposal site.

Don't want to Hijack your post but did you go up to Waddy Point at all? We are heading up there this coming weekend for 7 days and I read on the report that there's huge deep water holes on the beach side?

Boobook2 , thats when you have a legitimate reason to complain , NOT when you are the intruder. Can not for the life of me figure out why it is necessary for people to set up camp right ontop of each other , you dont like whats going on at a site when you arrive ,move on.

Problem is that often the noise starts after you have set up.

Eg, this weekend we set up on Friday Morning at a flat near Walhalla. A Large camp ground with 3 other groups already there. All good.

Then at about 5PM one group had more arrivals. About 4 trailer loads of trail bikes. Mostly unregistered with 15-18YO's. They spent the whole weekend riding around the camp site and had obviously fixed the exhausts to make em sound "better". Then they had loud music till 4AM. Didn't give a stuff about the other groups who all moved on Saturday morning to a site about a km away. Problem was we could still hear them all wekeend.

A loveley spot and weekend completely ruined. Just wish I had reception to call DSE.

Allot c/t When they have a stereo turned right up in the quiet of the bush,you would have to camp hundreds of metres away and even then you would still hear them.

In most camp sites this is just not feasible and you dont have a right to disturb or annoy everyone else just because you were the 1st ones there.
Nor does being the 2nd one to the campsite make you an" intruder"

Ross m , if you cant find a spot on the eastern beach of Fraser island to get away from others your not looking hard enough , its beach for crying out loud , and as the original poster stated the noise was there before him , not everyone goes to the bush or the beach to meditate their navel or to hear the pounding surf. If you dont like what is there on arrival at 1 particular spot move on.

Gday,
Im with Alloy c/t .
Obviously there is a limit to how loud, how late and what type of music you play in some areas but sometimes people just whinge because others aren't acting exactly how they would like. In that case move.
Not everyone one goes out bush for them same reason..... who said camping is for tree hugging and bird watching.......I reckon that's boring.
Each to there own reckon......I don't complain about about bush nerds so they shouldn't complain about my music????

It takes all types.......
Cheers

Did anybody ask them nicely to consider others and turn it down?

Sometimes, some people just don't realise they are affecting others.

Playing portable stereos up loud is no good. Far too much distortion. You need pretty serious gear to play good music to a whole beach and lots of power to run it.

Playing poor music on poor equipment up loud as simply noise pollution and inconsiderate noise pollution at that when inflicted on others.

Good time to run generators, compressors, angle grinders, chainsaws and to test the range of the air horns (I wish). If you can't beat em join em I say.
