Holidays in Fraser Island
The area and getting around
Come away to an eco paradise like no other on Australia's south eastern Queensland Coast! This remarkable 120 km and 25 km wide island is the largest sand island on planet earth and is renowned for its pristine beaches, unique, azure sand bottom freshwater lakes, rainforest dunes and trails and abundant marine and land wildlife. Separated from the mainland by The Great Sandy Strait visitors arrive on the island from Rainbow Beach, a small tourist town on the Queensland coast where there is a barge crossing to the south of Fraser Island, or via car ferry from Hervey Bay. Hervey Bay is 3.5 hours north of Brisbane by car and a short 1 hour 45 minute flight from Sydney.Freshwater swimming and natural wonders
Fraser Island is a top tourist destination known for its resplendent, wild, raw, off the beaten track natural beauty and unique natural wonders. The island is a world heritage site and is the only place on earth where you can see tall rainforest plants firmly anchored into sand dunes as high as 200 metres as well as being one of the few places to boast the unusual natural phenomenon of dune depressions becoming permanently filled with rainwater to form lakes with crystal clear, naturally filtered water!
Travellers and activities
If you are an animal lover you will have multiple opportunities for close encounters with the remarkable variety of fauna that inhabits the dense vegetation on the island. Spot gorgeous golden dingoes prowling about as well as possums, several species of snake, exquisite sand monitor lizards and flying foxes. More than 345 species of birds can be seen here including king parrots! The ocean waters teem with dolphins, stingrays, tiger sharks and turtles and the island is on a migration route for humpback whales!Fraser Island for hiking enthusiasts
If you are an ardent hiker you may be tempted to try some or all of the fabled 90km Fraser Island Great Walk route that takes about 8 days to complete! Marvel at vast, windswept expanses of desolate beach scenery and pass some of the island's most iconic tourist attractions en route such as the unforgettable Lake MacKenzie, Central Station´s subtropical rainforest and the incredible dunes of Lake Wabby! You can stock up on supplies at the two tiny settlements of Dilli Village and Happy Valley. Try one of the fabulous rainforest hikes at Central Station if you prefer shorter routes and a cool, leafy environment.

Top 5 travel tips in Fraser Island
Imagine swimming in a sparkling tourmaline hued lake where the water is naturally infused with healing tea tree oil and with dazzling white silica sand that feels like silk to the touch! This is Lake McKenzie, one of Fraser Island's most popular destinations for travellers alongside Lake Birrabeen. These have to be amongst the most beautiful swimming spots on Planet Earth and have to be seen to be believed!2. Champagne Pools Swimming
Want a unique, sublime swimming experience that ticks all the boxes including gorgeous photo opportunities? Head to the Champagne Pools located along 75 mile beach on Fraser Island´s east coast between Waddy Point and Indian Head. The water in these natural pools formed by volcanic rock formations is renewed as successive ocean waves crash over the rocky barrier and the fizzing sea foam creates a jacuzzi sensation! This is a stunning, highly sought after, safe swimming spot as dangerous rip tides make swimming in the sea around the island unadvisable.3. Walk the Rainforest Trails
Head into the leafy green coolness of the beautiful Central Station Rainforest Trails where an incredible subtropical rainforest adventure awaits you! Try the fabulous 7 km Wanggoolba Creek Trail where you walk on a boardwalk that follows the bed of a beautiful creek surrounded by lush ferns, piccabeen palms, strangler figs and vines. You can stop to admire the largest fern fronds in the world here before arriving on the stunning shores of Basin Lake!4. Hike up Indian Head
If you are a fan of beautiful ocean views you will love the breathtaking, sweeping panoramic vista of waves crashing on the pale sand shoreline, rolling dunes and lush island scrub vegetation. Hike 20 minutes over soft, dry sand at the northern end of 75 Mile Beach to scale Indian Head. This is a renowned lookout point for spotting spawning bluefish, manta rays, sharks, dolphins, whales and turtles!5. Go on a Hervey Bay whale watching tour
The calm, shallow waters off the coast of Hervey Bay provide an incredible safe haven for humpback whales to shelter and rest after their long migration. It is not unusual for these gentle, inquisitive giants to approach really close to the boat providing you with a thrilling opportunity to see a tail flick or other whale acrobatics in the water! There are at least 10 tour operators in the area offering this wonderful, once in a lifetime, wildlife encounter!
