House rules

Cleaning/ Damage Fee

Cleaning costs on the island are very high.  We have not increased our rental rates by adding cleaning costs onto our rental rate.  We have damage & cleaning fee of $500 which allows you the choice to keep the overall rental cost down.  Various items of cleaning equipment can be found in the laundry and kitchen (in the cabinets below the bench).  A vacuum cleaner, sweeping brushes and dustpan are located in the laundry for your use.  When you have gone, the premises will be inspected and, if satisfactory, the damage & cleaning fee will be fully returned to your nominated account or the cost of excessive cleaning will be deducted from the damage & cleaning fee if this service is required upon inspection after your departure.  Please leave the house as you found it, we are proud of our house and are pleased to share it with others who enjoy and respect wonderful properties like Driftwood.

Breakages and Damage

Accidents happen, so it’s inevitable that minor items like plates and glasses will get broken.  Please notify the caretakers of any breakages and damage so that the next people who stay at Driftwood benefit from all of the facilities that you have enjoyed. Minor accidents we accept – however, careless damage costs will apply for wilful and destructive damages and will be taken out of your damage/cleaning fee.

Rubbish

Fraser Island is a World Heritage site and needs to be respected as such.  There is no rubbish collection service at Orchid Beach so we ask you to please remove all rubbish from the house and empty and wash all bins when you leave. Please deposit all rubbish in the bins provided at the Rubbish Transfer Station located south of the township. Remember that cans are better than bottles – they travel better in a 4WD and are lighter as rubbish.  Dingoes and goannas are the biggest problem scavengers with rubbish not placed correctly in bins with lids locked down securely.  Heavy fines are enforced by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, not only to campers but to residents in the housing sector of Fraser Island also.  Please secure all rubbish correctly or your holiday may cost more than you intended. Dingoes frequent the surrounds of the property and rubbish left lying about only encourages them more!

Fish Cleaning Facilities

Commercial kitchen stainless steel fish cleaning table, sink and cutting board are provided in the car port of the boat shed.  Please use this facility and do not clean or fillet fish inside the house.  It is your responsibility to dispose of fish remains as directed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service which states - “Stow fish remains in sealed container until burying. When burying fish offal and unused bait dig a deep hole just below high tide mark and cover waste with at least 50cm (20ins) of sand. Dispose of used bait bags and unwanted fishing line in bins. Fish cleaning and offal disposal is prohibited in all campgrounds, camping areas, and along sections of the eastern beach, where signposted. NOTE - All freshwater fish are protected on Fraser Island.”  Heavy penalties and on the spot fines apply to those failing to follow these instructions.    

Smoking

A hard-wired smoke alarm system is fitted to comply with regulations.  You are therefore reminded that smoking is not allowed inside the house.  Please smoke outside the house or on the decks and use the butt bins attached to the poles on each deck area.

Fire

No fires are to be lit in the grounds of the house. Fires are prohibited in the Fraser Island Recreation Area. High penalties apply.

Fire Crackers  

Due to the heavy fuel level, around Orchid Beach Fire Crackers are prohibited in the village.  Heavy fines apply.

Pets 

Animals (including domestic pets) are not permitted within the national park. Dogs and other domestic animals can destroy ecosystems and kill wildlife. Be warned! Dogs and other domestic animals are not permitted on Fraser Island or north of the township of Teewah in the Cooloola Recreation Area. Penalties apply, even if your dog is travelling in the vehicle.
