Description

Fraser Island, Great Sandy National Park is a wonderland which can take days to explore. Fraser Island, a World Heritage area, features huge dunes, wide ocean beaches and mighty rainforests growing on sand. Explore the rich cultural history of the Butchulla people and early pioneers. Walk the 90 kilometre Fraser Island Great Walk - or one of many shorter walks. View the landscape by plane or from many island lookouts. Relax beside a freshwater lake 'perched' among the dunes. Fish from the ocean beach, wander through tall rainforests or marvel at the crystal-clear water in Wanggoolba Creek. Because Fraser Island is all sand, you will need a four wheel drive vehicle with high clearance to enjoy driving the inland tracks or the beach at low tide. Purchase vehicle and camping permits in advance.
