75 Mile Beach

Fraser Island, Fraser Coast Area

It is not hard to guess how this location got its name. A bloke measured the beach one day and found out that it was 75 miles long.

Apart from its length, there are many more impressive things about this rugged stretch of sand on the east coast of Fraser Island. It's where you'll find the Maheno shipwreck, the popular swimming spot known as Champagne Pools and the striking volcanic rock formation of Indian Head.

The beach itself is not a safe place to swim due to dangerous currents and a large shark population. It's also a landing strip for light aircraft so be sure to take care when you are cruising along the sand in your four wheel drive.
