The World Heritage-listed Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, some 76 miles long and 13 miles wide, located north of Brisbane.
Reached via a ferry from Hervey Bay – or a scenic flight which lands on a beach airstrip – the experiences this island has to offer will truly immerse you in nature.
All tours on the island are taken by four-wheel drive – either with a guide or in your own rented vehicle – taking you on a journey inland and along the beaches and dunes of this epic wildlife wonderland. The star attractions include the 100 freshwater lakes, with the picture-postcard Lake McKenzie the most famous of these and the perfect spot for a refreshing dip after a busy morning’s hiking. Then there’s the Seventy Five Mile Beach and its amazing ‘Instagram-able’ shipwrecks; spotting dingoes in the wild, and whale sightings from August to October.
Take your time and truly experience everything Fraser Island with overnight stays at the eco-hotel Kingfisher Bay Resort, if limited on time day trips are available from Hervey Bay, Noosa and Brisbane.
