Fraser Island is one of the world’s most unusual islands. Not only is it the largest sand island in the world – 123 kilometers (76 miles) long and 22 kilometers (14 miles) wide – but it’s the only place on Earth where tall rainforests grow on sand dunes at elevations of more than 200 meters (656 feet). It also has half the world’s perched lakes – lakes formed when depressions in dunes fill permanently with rainwater.

Highlights Cairns to Fraser Island Adventure Tour

Home to the most pure strain of dingoes remaining in eastern Australia, and one of the best places to see baby humpback whales and their mothers, Fraser Island also has superb scenery, with massive shifting sand blows, sensational swimming spots and thrilling 4WD tracks. A World Heritage-listed wilderness with lots of resort-style comforts, Fraser is the perfect place to go wild.

Get Wet

There are so many different ways to get wet on Fraser Island. No visit to the island is complete without a long leisurely float in the beautiful blue waters of lake McKenzie , a perched lake fed only by rainwater, encircled by pure white sand. Lake Wabby, at the edge of the Hammerstone Sandblow, is the deepest lake on the island and when the sun shines it’s hard to resist plunging into its cool, emerald depths.  Eli Creek is a clear freshwater creek – you can walk along its boardwalk then float with the current all the way to the beach. 

Champagne Pools

Champagne Pools, where the surf crashes over a series of rock walls into a calm but bubbly rock pool below the headland on the northern tip of the island, is another top spot to cool off. See them all on a self-guided 4WD adventure, or join a Beauty Spots Tour, which also includes the rainforest.

Fraser Island Great Walk

The Fraser Island Great walk is a 90-kilometre (56-mile) track that winds between Dilli Village and Happy Valley, passing most of the island’s notable sites, such as Lake McKenzie, Wanggoolba Creek, Lake Wabby and the towering rainforest trees in the Valley of the Giants. 

All Roads are 4WD 

All roads on Fraser Island, which are made of soft sand, are 4WD only. A number of  tours are available, or you can hire your own set of wheels on the island or in Hervey Bay. If you haven’t driven on sand before, the friendly folk at Aussie Trax 4WD Hire at Kingfisher Village will give you a quick lesson before you set out. Most people head straight to the vast sandy highway otherwise known as 75 Mile Beach on the eastern side of the island, but also worth doing is the inland Central Lakes scenic drive (allow about two hours), highlights of which include Pile Valley’s impressive stand of tall, straight satinay trees, Lake McKenzie, and Lake Wabby lookout for a view of Lake Wabby and Stonetool Sandblow.

Night life

Wild nightlife takes on a whole new meaning on Fraser Island, where many of the natives come out to play once the sun goes down. Join a ranger on a guided night walk, shining a spotlight on the trees and into the bushes to see sugar gliders leaping through the treetops, rare frogs at the lake edges and other wild animals as they rustle through the scrub.

Accommodation

Fraser Island has accommodation to suit every budget. Some of the best places to stay on Fraser Island are campgrounds – you can hire camping equipment when you hire your 4WD – and if you really want to get back to nature you can camp behind the dunes on Eastern or Western Beach. Kingfisher Bay Resort has a four-star hotel, self-contained villas and beach houses. If you’re backpacking, accommodation is all part of the deal when you join a Cool Dingo tour

Whales

Ever wondered where whales go on their holidays? Each year thousands of whales migrate from the cold Antarctic waters to the warmer tropical seas along Australia’s east coast to give birth, and on the way back many stop to rest in the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay before returning south. Between August and late October, this is one of the best places in the country to see humpbacks with their calves as sightings are almost guaranteed. If you’re really lucky you might even be on a boat that gets “mugged” by the whales when they come right in close. Half-day  operate August through October.
