Fraser Island

Fraser Island Eco Holiday Adventure, located off the coast from Queensland's Hervey Bay, is World Heritage Listed Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world and the only place on the planet where rainforest grows on sand! Over 120 kilometres long and over 30 kilometres across at its widest point.

With its freshwater lakes, coloured sand cliffs, rainforests growing in sand, crystal-clear creeks and long white beaches, Fraser Island is a truly beautiful place. Fraser Island has at least 40 lakes including half of the world's perched dune lakes. Lake Boomanjin, the largest perched lake in the world, is one of the island's most picturesque.

Fraser Island boasts a wealth of natural attractions: pristine fresh water lakes such as McKenzie, Boomanjin, Allom and the spectacular Lake Wabby; crystal clear creeks - Eli Creek being the most well-known; Champagne Pools - wonderful swimming rock-pools; the amazing coloured sands formations known as The Cathedrals and the Central Station camping area and ranger station. On the eastern beach, near Happy Valley you will discover Fraser Island's own shipwreck - The Maheno.

Fraser Island is home to thousands of species of birds and its warm waters attract dugong, dolphins and turtles. The magnificent humpback whales, with their young, pass on the western side of the island between August and November.

Approximately half of Fraser Island is currently national park. The Great Sandy National Park occupies the northern half of the island. The southern half is almost entirely crown land and state forests, proposed for national park, subject to resolution of Aboriginal land interests. Fraser has various centres providing information about the island and Great Sandy National Park. Information Centres can be found at Eurong National Parks and Wildlife Office, Central Station, Dundubara and Waddy Point.

You can visit Fraser Island either by taking a guided tour, as a foot-passenger to the western side, or by self-driving (for four-wheel-drive vehicles only). Access requires crossing the Great Sandy Strait either by barge or charter aircraft.
