Fraser Island & Fraser Coast

The world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island offers a multitude of activities in an idyllic setting. Visitors can enjoy hiking through the lush rainforest and encountering the unique wildlife on the island, whilst a four-wheel drive will enable you to explore the freshwater lakes and colourful sand cliffs of Fraser Island. Whales and other marine life can also be observed in the clear blue waters of the island. With the opportunity to watch the stars whilst camped out under the clear night sky, Fraser Island offers the chance to relax and be at one with nature.

An unmissable stop on the Great Sunshine Way and the Pacific Coast Touring Route, the World Heritage listed Fraser Island is conveniently located just off Queensland’s Fraser Coast, a quick ferry ride from Hervey Bay.
