TOP TIPS

Travel time from the Great Sandy Strait Marina to Moon Point is approximately 2 hours.

Make sure you watch out for all those sandbars on the way into Moon Point. As always, keep in contact with the team at Fraser Island Boat Charters and keep an eye on your water depth when anchoring.

OVERVIEW

Located only an hour or two sail (or motor) from the Great Sandy Straits Marina in Hervey Bay, Moon Point on Fraser Island (K’gari) is a local favourite anchorage and you will often find a number of yachties settling in this alcove for the night.

Moon Point is also the halfway mark of Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, which stretches for a massive 124 kilometers. This spot is also very sacred to the local indigenous land owners, the Butchulla people, as it was believed to be where women gave birth to their children many years ago.

If you’re embarking on a 3 night bareboat adventure, Moon Point is the perfect base for you or can be just one of your anchorages over a longer stint out on the water. This anchorage provides epic views of Fraser, will show off hidden sand banks at low tide and give you the opportunity to keep an eye out for local wildlife including the pure bred dingoes of Fraser Island.

Because Moon Point stretches around into an alcove it provides the perfect protection during less than perfect weather conditions on your sailing holiday. It’s also a regular spot for our skippered day and overnight yacht trips.
