Embrace nature on World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, a short ferry ride from Hervey Bay on Queensland's Fraser Coast. On the world's largest sand island, you can 4WD next to coloured sand cliffs, hike through rainforest, meet native wildlife, whale-watch and swim in freshwater lakes ringed with gold. Get here on the Pacific Coast Touring Route or Great Sunshine Way.
Enjoy Four wheel driving next to the coloured sand cliffs of The Cathedrals or planes making joy flights on Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Bushwalk through rainforest growing from the sand and heathlands full of wild flowers and swim in mirrored lakes ringed with gold. Visit Lake McKenzie, picnic next to turtles at Lake Allom and spot whales from Indian Head. Discover the historic Maheno shipwreck in Happy Valley and see kangaroos, wallabies and possums on a bushwalk into the interior. Learn how the island was formed, and about its fascinating Aboriginal and pioneering history. It's easy to see why the Aboriginal owners called Fraser Island ‘K'gari' or paradise.
