Driving conditions vary with weather and tides. Speed limits are 35kmh on inland roads and 80kmh on the Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Normal road rules apply. Carry essential spares as well as a towrope, spade, water and first aid kit.

On the beach drive around the low tide times. Indicate when overtaking, turning or passing and pass on the left. Slow down for pedestrians, wildlife, vehicles and aircraft and beware of humps and creek washouts on the beach.

Inland stay on formed tracks. Most tracks are narrow and two-way so keep a look out for passing bays. Give way to buses and downhill traffic.

Camping Permits are also required in advance for camping. Permits may be obtained from River Head Barge landing, at Kingfisher Bay Resort - Fraser Island reception and at Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service offices including Brisbane, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Bundaberg and Rainbow Beach.
