Customer Travel Tip: Just stay for one night and then go to Fraser Island on a camping tag along tour.

Liked: I imagine if the weather is nice the beach and rainbow cliffs are beautiful.

Disliked: There is nothing to do. Particularly if the weather is bad. It's just a stop off for Fraser Island and probably not the best one because there is nothing on the bottom half of the island. Go to Hervey Bay instead.
