Police spot 'Hollywood star' relaxing on Fraser Island

FRASER Island police found a Hollywood star trying to sneak away for a quick holiday and avoid the excitement of the Oscars.

Wilson, star of 2000 movie Castaway alongside Tom Hanks, was found by an off-duty officer catching some sun in the dunes of the region's number one tourist destination.

It is the second time the pale and rotund star has been found on the island by police.

He was spotted in 2014 looking a little worse for wear.

The Chronicle is happy to report Wilson looks like he has a new lease on life.

The police office managed to find what appeared a castaway raft on the island.

Perhaps they chose the Fraser Coast for a cast reunion?

Winds on the Fraser Coast has pushed up a large amount of debris on the island and police are urging people to plan ahead.

Those visiting Fraser Island should plan ahead, check the tide times and beach conditions and make sure they are equipped to handle the drive.

Motorists are urged to remember the beach can change with each tide.

For move information on driving on the island visit the Department of Transport and Main Roads or National Parks and Wildlife.
