Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island. Although it consists of 95% sand it features a dense rainforest offering a healthy diet to dingos, swamp wallabies, turtles, snakes, birds and the like.
Fraser Island What to Do
Attractions include sand tracks to the golden sands of Seventy Five-Mile Beach
Fresh water creeks like Eli Creek
Rusting shipwrecks such as the Maheno’s hulk on 75-Mile Beach
The coloured sands of the The Pinnacles
The former logging site Central Station. From there streches an easy 40 minutes hike along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk in the sub-tropical rainforest.
Lake McKenzie offers safe swimming in clear waters and walking on sandy shorelines. The sand can serve as peeling cream, it’s that soft.
A 45 minutes ferry transfer takes guests from River Heads near Hervey Bay to the Kingfisher Bay. Unfortunately we had a rainy day on our one-day tour…
The Kingfisher Bay Resort offers eco tourism, three restaurants and ranger-guided walks for a nature based experience.
