About Fraser Island

World Heritage listed Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world and one of the most unique ecological masterpieces of Australia. With over 120 kilometres of beaches, pure fresh water lakes and ancient rainforests with a multitude of wildlife, there is so much to explore and see. Fraser Island’s traditional owners, the Butchella people, call this place 'K'Gari', which appropriately means paradise.


The island was named by Europeans; after Eliza Fraser in remembrance of her dramatic shipwreck.

Fraser Island's abundant pristine freshwater lakes and crystal clear creeks are great spots to view the unique flora and fauna. There are over 325 species of birds and several species of wallaby alone! You can also see Australia’s purest population of dingo and a unique species of tortoise can be found in some of the freshwater lakes.


Access to Fraser Island is by guided tour, chartered aircraft or 4x4 vehicle from Hervey Bay. There are no bridges connecting the Island to the mainland you’ll have to catch the car ferry or an aircraft to get to this remote paradise.
