Central Station is a scenic boardwalk through the rainforest along the banks of Wanggoolba creek.

The information centre shows some of the history of the island when it was logged, as well as flora, fauna and animals which live on Fraser Island.
Located around Central Station is superb open rainforest and the home to the massive Angiopteris ferns, this species has the largest fern fronds in the world.
Central Station has plantation of a variety of pine trees to which gave the camping ground much of its appeal and makes the ideal camping site during the holiday season.
Massive Satinay trees can be found in the upper catchment area of Wanggoolba Creek amid palms and rainforest. The trees are regarded as one of Fraser Island’s biological marvels as the sand they grow in has almost no natural mineral fertility
