WE ALREADY knew it was paradise, but Fraser Island's beauty has again been noted after it was awarded the nation's best camping destination.

The island has been named Australia's Best Camping Spot in the Out and About with Kids Best of Family Travel Awards.

Fraser Coast Opportunities' marketing manager Brad Nardi was thrilled with the accolade.

"Fraser Island is an icon with families coming from all over Australia and the world to make memories that last a lifetime," he said.

"We believe there is nowhere better in the world for a camping adventure and it's great to hear Australian families love it as much as we do."

The world's largest sand island was up against finalists including Byron Bay in New South Wales and the Murray River region in Victoria. Publisher of Out and About with Kids Elisa Elwin congratulated Fraser Island on the win.

"With thousands of nominations for beautiful camping spots around the country, Fraser Island was the clear winner with our readers," she said.
