Dangers

- Sharks

 Additional Information

There are heaps of waves on the island, there are also heaps of big sharks. If you stand on one of the headlands you will just about always see some. In days gone by a mate would sit on the headland with a rifle to try and shoot at sharks if they got too close.

Atmosphere

Probibly the last uncrowded fronteer. If you are in the water you are glad to see some one else. There are two main right hand points-Indian Head and Waddy point. Both classic rights plus unknown numbers of other breaks.

General

4wd only.no roads, drive on the beach. Heaps of tourists but very few people in the water. Fishermans heaven- catching big fish bitten in half is common. 200 miles of beach. 150 miles north of the Sunny Coast and gets a lot of swell.

Fraser Island
Por herwig
8 nov 2007
No Chance - No way to get a wave at Fraser this day. The whole coastline was a misty curtain and the closeouts breaking 500m out told me: stay out! So we went inside the rain forest and viewed around the beauty of nature. Overnighting at Fraser was not planned

Viaje: OZ East Coast 2007

De 28 oct 2007 a 30 nov 2007
OZ East Coast       When arriving at Sydney with the van after 3000kms criss-cross along the east coast the question was: Has it been worth all the expense and struggle doing a trip half around the plan

party tricks - a good giggle when having a cold one or two around the camp fire....wait till the first one of ya mates, switches off and starts sleeping in the sand. step 2..grab any left over barby meat, preferabbly sousages for photo value. step 3....place the food on passed out persons crotch...step 4...wait for the dingos to hone in on the free meat served on your mates crotch. step 5...snap some kodak moment fotos to show him later on...step 6...try to explain why you used his groin as a baiting point for feral wild dogs for the sake of a foto....priceless drunken humour.

Sharks - I wonder how good the sharp repelent devices are. Seems a pity to leave all the surf to the sharks

- I surfed there a bit as a kid and got some good waves but these days I don't even bother to take my boards. Be careful fishing of Indian Head, there's a plaque there that bares my uncle and his mate's name. They never found the bodies
