Travel in the royal’s wake to Fraser Island

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have two rural locations on their itinerary for October – Fraser Island K’gari and Dubbo. The island is in our backyard – literally 15 minutes from where we live at Rainbow Beach, we can be on the barge.It is an are we are currently auditing to include more campsites accessible to RVs, ready for CAMPS 10. Although I can’t see Harry and Meghan stopping the night at Waddy Point (even though I am sure they would love it), you can bet that that Fraser will be humming with extra campers that
