Fraser Island

Visit Fraser Island to be dwarfed by ancient rainforests growing out of only sand and to explore the freshwater lakes and spectacular sand formations of one of the most incredible islands on earth.

World Heritage-listed Fraser Island has the absolute best that one island can offer - cool towering rainforests to walk through; over 100 freshwater lakes to swim including the iconic Lake McKenzie, huge sand blows to climb, and an amazing 120 kilometre beach highway, complete with the Maheno shipwreck and cliffs of stunning coloured sands.

Lying off the coast of Hervey Bay and just south of the last of the Great Barrier Reef's coral cays, Fraser is the world's largest sand island and stretches for 123 kilometres.

Unforgettable island eco-adventures include cruises to discover the untouched beauty of the remote western side and guided or self-drive tours.

Though surrounded by untamed wilderness and rugged terrain, Fraser Island boasts luxurious, relaxing and natural accommodation experiences.

Fraser Island also offers some of the best beach fishing experiences in the world, and provides options for young novice anglers and seasoned fishing professionals.

Whatever adventure you are looking for, Fraser Island has you covered.
