Photos and Description of this Fraser Island holiday cottage

Step back in time into this fabulous piece of history on amazing Fraser Island...

The Southern Hut is the second oldest building on Fraser Island. It boasts the amazing original Maheno shipwreck flooring and exudes the true history of Fraser Island. This Cottage is 60 years old, cosy and rustic and is perfect for fishing groups.


Our elevated location location offers spectacular views over 75 Mile Beach and out across the Pacific Ocean. Located approximately halfway up the Island, the Maheno Cottages provide the perfect base to explore the World’s largest sand Island - from from freshwater lakes, rainforests, the infamous Maheno Shipwreck, Indian Head, Champagne Pools…the list goes on…

This rustic 2 bedroom,1 bathroom cottage is fully furnished and self-contained.

The Hut sleeps up to 8 people. The bedding configurations are as follows:

Bedroom 1:

1 x queen bed

The Cottages run on a 24hr solar power system, with a back-up generator. We do ask guests not to bring electrical equipment (mobile phone/laptop charges are permitted), as they can rapidly deplete the solar battery stores and risk overloading the system.

Linen can be hired (in advance) at extra cost - please let us know at time of booking

You will need a reliable, high clearance 4WD and a vehicle access permit to reach Happy Valley. 4WD vehicles can be hired from Hervey Bay or Rainbow Beach.

Happy Valley is only 1km away and offers all the services and facilities you need to enjoy your stay on Fraser Island. Facilities include drinking water, toilets, ATM, fuel, Australia Post mailbox (cleared twice weekly), public phone, and an Ambulance service.
