Fraser Island

Separated from the mainland by a narrow channel, Fraser Island is the largest sand island on Earth and an ecological masterpiece. Vast tracts of sand dunes with deep midnight blue freshwater lakes trapped 700 feet (212 metres) above sea level are balanced with lush rainforest and surrounded by endless white beaches. Native wildlife abounds including dingoes, brumbies (wild horses) echidnas, wallabies, and 206 species of birds: Peregrin Falcons, Kingfishers and Jabirus just to mention a few.

Fraser Island is World heritage listed and almost the entire island is protected National Park. For camping, bush- walking and four wheel driving, the unique contrasts of Fraser Island are a must. Deserted sandy beaches, cool eucalypt forests, with crystal clear streams, and the beach and lake fishing are great. There are shipwrecks and ancient Aboriginal sites to explore or just draw a deep breath and take in the solitude. 200,000 people visit the island each year, but don't be surprised if you think it's deserted.

Many people choose to pitch a tent on the numerous camp sites on the island. Happy Valley and Eurong Resorts cater for fishing guests and will also arrange for four wheel drive hire for those who wish to fly in.

Accommodation ranges from motel units to houses and flats.

Kingfisher Bay, an environmentally conscious resort, is carefully crafted into the forested contours of North White Cliffs on the island's untouched west coast. The resort offers a great beachfront location with every amenity, yet blends beautifully with its surroundings. There's a 38 suite resort hotel, formal restaurant, beachfront brasserie, bistro, bars, shop- ping village and recreational activities, plus 50 residential villas for rent. Access by sea from Urangan Boat Harbour (where you can also go whale watching in season), or by four wheel drive if you're already on the island.

How to get to Fraser Island By Beach. For an unforgettable drive head north from Noosa to Double Island Point along Teewah Beach. Access via Noosa River ferry at Tewantin, then vehicular barge. Or take the highway from Noosa to Maryborough and Urangan Boat Harbour. Access by ferry from Hervey Bay. No domestic animals. Road access on Fraser Island is by four wheel drive only.
