Set up camp with ocean views of Double Island Point, or seek out a more sheltered patch among the red ash and sheoaks. From here you can fish, walk and drive in the surrounding recreation area and marine park.

When you wander down the track to the beach, stop to consider the fate of the SS Dorrigo’s crew. The steamship sank several kilometres off Double Island Point on 2 April 1926. The captain and his son were rescued, and the body of the boatswain floated up on Fraser Island, but no trace was ever found of the remaining 21 crew members.
