Visit Fraser Island
Fraser Island is truly spectacular, and while you will often see the untouched beauty of the remote western side on our charters, it is well worth doing a 4WD tour of the island to get a full appreciation of the island.
With spectacular sand formations, natural beauty and exceptional eco-experiences, World Heritage listed Fraser Island is unmatched anywhere in the world.
Gravity defying, ancient rainforests growing out of only sand, over 100 freshwater lakes and spectacular sand transformations are all part of the wonders of the world’s largest sand island.
Built up by over 800,000 years of tidal action – the world’s largest and oldest dune building sequence has a rich history. Named K’gari, meaning paradise, Fraser Island was home to the Butchulla people who lived on the island for over 5,000 years.
On 75 Mile Beach, one of the only sand highways in the world, discover the history behind the Maheno shipwreck or swim in the bubbling waters of the champagne pools.
Nature is thriving with more than 325 bird species plus possums, turtles, flying foxes, echidnas and the famous Fraser Island dingo. Along 75 Mile Beach, keep your eye on the water for dolphins, turtles, manta rays, sharks and dugongs or get an aerial view of the water and what lies below.
Lying off the coast of Hervey Bay and just south of the last of the Great Barrier Reef’s coral cays, Fraser Island stretches for 123km and spans 166,000 hectares. If you’d like an unforgettable four wheel drive eco-adventure to discover the island’s iconic places, check out this website:
