Orchid Beach Trading Post & Driftwood Bar

A Fraser Island Destination & Queensland Icon

The Orchid Beach Trading Post and Driftwood Bar is a family run pub situated at beautiful Orchid Beach Fraser Island. It is the place for locals and anyone passing through. Our relaxed old style pub is the perfect place to sit with friends and enjoy a laid back atmosphere, fantastic view and the island’s coldest beer on tap.

Trading Post

We are the one stop shop for fuel, gas, ice, groceries along with a bottle shop. We offer a well stocked range of general grocery items and souvenirs. We also stock basic lines of fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, bread and eggs and have a selection of frozen meats which we source locally from Rainbow Beach.

The Driftwood Bar

Under our corrugated tin roof you’ll find our heart, The Driftwood Bar. Boasting the island’s coldest beer on tap along with the only pub on Fraser which offers beautiful ocean views. Time moves differently up here, so pull up a barstool overlooking the airstrip and ocean, watch the whales, planes land or the regular larrikin getting bogged while enjoying a cold beverage.
