Heads-up: Double Island Point a carpark of tourists

DOUBLE Island Point has turned into a carpark with thousands of holiday makers flocking to the tourist hotspot.

Drone photography taken by Mikey Pee has shown the extent of the Christmas-New Year rush.

Earlier this week it saw the Tewantin Ferry slammed, with more than 30 minute waiting times.

The camp itself has a capacity of 2200.
