“The largest sand island in the world!”

Visit Fraser Island to be dwarfed by the ancient, gravity defying rainforests growing out of only sand and to explore the freshwater lakes and spectacularsand formations of one of the most incredible islands on earth.

World Heritage-listed Fraser Island has the absolute best that one island can offer – cool towering rainforests to walk through; over 100 freshwater lakes to swim including the iconic Lake McKenzie and Lake Wabby, huge sand blows to climb, and an amazing 120km beach highway, complete with the Maheno shipwreck and cliffs of stunning coloured sands.

Lying off the coast of Hervey Bay and just south of the last of the Great Barrier Reef’s coral cays, Fraser is the world’s largest sand island and stretches for 123km and spans 166,000 hectares.

Unforgettable island eco-adventures include cruises to discover the untouched beauty of the remote western side and guided or self-drive tours.

Though surrounded by untamed wilderness and rugged terrain, Fraser Island boasts luxurious, relaxing and natural accommodation experiences.

Fraser Island offers some of the best beach fishing experiences in the world, and provides options for young novice anglers and seasoned fishing professionals.

Be it fishing off 75 Mile Beach on the eastern side of Fraser Island, at Sandy Cape, Indian Head or off the Kingfisher Bay Resort jetty, Fraser Island offers a diverse range of fish species that are available all year. Whiting, dart, tailor and jewfish are all common catches off the beaches and jetties.

Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world and a very cool experience. I went on a 3-day tour with a big group, a lot of Europeans in their early 20s doing gap years and lots of sloppy drinking, but I'm sure there are other tour operators that cater to different demographics. They make groups of 8, each group has their own SUV and camping equipment / food. We were there during the Australian winter which was a bit of a shame as it made swimming pretty frigid, if you can go during the fall I think that'd be the best time as it won't be incredibly hot but the water will be warmer.

This is an amazing trip though, cooking over a fire, scenic rivers, crystal clear coves, mountains nestled in the middle of a rainforest that's grown on top of sand dunes. I don't think I've ever seen as many stars as I did those nights.

Don't be so scared of the dingoes, definitely don't feed them but kept pretty well away from us.
