Fraser Island hugs the coast of Queensland from Cooloola at its southern end to Hervey Bay further north before jutting out into the Pacific Ocean. At 123 kilometres long and 25 kilometres at its widest Fraser is the largest sand island in the world, and with stunning scenery, a huge diversity of flora and fauna, and a continuously evolving landscape its World Heritage status is a comfortable fit.
More than half a million people visit Fraser Island each year. 250 km of glistening beaches, 43 sandblows that are constantly shifting, rainforests and several dune lakes provide plenty for them all to do. The network of sandy roads and the long stretches of beach provide great opportunities for some rough and ready four-wheel driving, while those seeking a more serene activity can explore some of the forty walking tracks and boardwalks on foot.
We’ve just returned from a week’s holiday on this island paradise – I give you the colours of Fraser!
