Description

Fraser Island Great Walk is located in Fraser Island, Great Sandy National Park. Fraser Island is the world's largest sand island and an area of remarkable natural beauty. It was listed as a World Heritage Area in 1992 in recognition of the island's internationally significant natural features.

The Fraser Island Great Walk winds for 90 kilometres between Dilli Village and Happy Valley. Towering rainforests, crystal-clear lakes, coloured sands and vast sand dunes are just a few of the natural wonders you will discover on the walk. The track passes iconic sites such as Lake McKenzie (Boorangoora), Wanggoolba Creek, Lake Wabby and Central Station.

The walk takes about 6-8 days to complete and is of a generally moderately difficult grade. The walk has many access points where vehicles can pick you up or drop you off and is well-defined and signposted. The track surface is generally stable -firm sand mostly covered with leaf litter. There are some sections of soft sand especially over sandblows and some exposed sections with no shade.

The walk is remote with little or no mobile phone reception. You will need to carry reliable communication and navigation equipment and the Fraser Island Great Walk topographic map.
