Central Station


Considered the historic heart of Fraser Island, this former forestry camp used to be home to the loggers between the 1920s and the 1950s. Around 30 houses and a school for the loggers’ children were also on this site. These days it’s a stunning rainforest area which explains the development of the island and its myriad flora and fauna.

A highlight here is the boardwalk around Wanggoolba Creek through the rainforest. Wanggoolba holds special significance as it was the area used exclusively by local Butchulla women including as a birthing place. Today you’ll find a peaceful picnic area and mature Kauri and Bunya pines, as well as Satinays and Flooded Gums which were planted 95 years ago and form a beautiful botanic garden.
