Sanctuary Lakes is a great stopping off point for Fraser Island. The cabins are located in a very idyllic setting and are spacious and well equipped. The site is extremely peaceful except for the rather noisy wildlife, from dusk onwards - but that is part of its appeal! Rod and Deb were very accommodating, especially as I had an unplanned return visit the following evening!
