Fraser Coast

Big moments in nature

The national and marine parks of the Fraser Coast offer amazing natural adventures which will surprise, delight and inspire even the most experienced traveller. Set yourself free on the world’s largest sand island, where ribbons of coloured sands trail into white beaches and where crystal-clear lakes and streams glitter amid towering rainforest. Marvel at giant sandblows, relax at an award-winning eco-lodge or enjoy an adventurous 4WD journey along a wide ocean beach. Head out on the water for an experience of a lifetime—getting up close and personal with some of the largest creatures alive, humpback whales, as they take a break on their journey between warm tropical waters and the Antarctic. A close encounter with a whale is a powerful and humbling gift that will leave you with a lasting impression of the importance of nature and renew your spirit for life and adventure.
