Fraser Island, Great Sandy National Park
Unforgettable island adventure
By foot or by 4WD, on your own or with a professional tour guide, World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, in Great Sandy National Park, is a place of incredible natural beauty that will surprise you with its diversity. One minute you are walking beside a crystal-clear freshwater stream; the next, overlooking a huge sandblow or driving your 4WD on long sweeping beaches; then later you are exploring subtropical rainforest growing on seemingly infertile sand! The world’s largest sand island is rich in cultural significance to the Butchulla people, who know this natural wonderland as ‘K’Gari’.
