Fraser Island is an incredible destination, a stunning and very large sand island home to rainforests full of diverse eco systems, freshwater lakes and awesome ancient formations, plus its own shipwreck. It's located just off the coast of Hervey Bay, south of the Great Barrier Reef's cays.
The island is world heritage-listed and it's easy to see why with the kind of natural wonders that defy belief. The huge, ancient sub tropical rainforest grows out of the sand dunes. With so much breathtaking nature on display, there are no shortage of things to do on the island.
Try a four wheel drive to really explore every area. The 75 mile beach is basically a long scenic highway with incredible views, the ocean pounds alongside. Stop off at Eli Creek for incredible pure water and a chance to swim or tube.
The Maheno Shipwreck is pure history and beauty combined. Once a Trans-Tasman luxury liner and a World War One hospital ship it washed ashore in 1935.
Stop for sunset at Indian Head for panoramic views and a chance to spot whales. Close by you will find popular swimming spot, Champagne pools (so called for their clear, bubbling sea water). Lake Mackenzie is said to hold the key to youth! See for yourself with a dip in these crystal clear waters
There is so much beauty on the island to take in with wild dingo spotting, sunsets, beach fishing, swimming and boat and small plane tours.
Whale watching season, for an unbeatable chance to see migrating whales breaching in the ocean, runs from mid July to mid November.
