Fraser Island

Fraser Island is one of Queensland's most sought after holiday destinations. Located approximately three and a half hours’ drive north of Brisbane and easily accessible by barge, Fraser is the largest sand island in the world and is a World Heritage listed natural beauty. Fraser Island also has an abundance of experiences to offer, from whale watching in Hervey Bay to exploring the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Hervey Bay is known as the gateway to Fraser Island and, together with major regional tourist attractions, is a world renowned holiday destination for couples, families and backpackers. The whale watching industry has grown to a level where approximately 75,000 visitors per annum depart from Hervey Bay on daily basis, from August to mid-November, weather permitting. In total, approximately 600,000 visitors come to Fraser Island each year.

Fraser Island’s breathtaking beauty and natural attractions make it one of the most sought after destinations on the Fraser coast. It is a unique natural environment and the only place on the planet where rainforest grows from sand. Rich Aboriginal heritage and a colourful European history are integral to Fraser Island. This combination makes Fraser one of the most rare and mysterious features of Queensland's coastline.

Fraser Island stretches across 144 km coast line, with an abundance of native animal species and a vast range of plant life. There are a number of lakes on the island each with their own individual character. From lakes stained red with tannin to others with pure white sand and crystal clear water, swimming in these lakes is a memorable experience. Of course the natural environment of Fraser Island is one of its biggest drawcards. From the ancient, gravity defying rainforest to the MAHENO shipwreck, spectacular sand dunes and unique Champagne Pools, Fraser is a nature lovers delight.

Fraser Island also features a wide range of wildlife including its famous dingo population, small mammals, wallabies, snakes, turtles, 230 bird species and majestic Humpback Whales. A precious part of the natural and cultural heritage of Queensland, the unique geological and biological processes of Fraser and its ageing yet dynamic sand dunes make it a natural wonder that must be protected and respected for all future generations to enjoy.
