Frazer Island - Nature and Beauty

Frazer Island

There is no doubt that Fraser Island ranks as one of the true wonders of Australia. It is the largest sand island in the world and has such a range of attractions and activities that it is a 'must' for anyone travelling along the Queensland coast. It is on Fraser Island that the visitor can see extraordinary freshwater sand dune lakes, beautiful quiet streams, cliffs with remarkable coloured sand horizons and rugged headlands.

Located just off the coast from Hervey Bay (which is 300 km north of Brisbane and 37 km east of Maryborough) Fraser Island is 123 km long and varies from 7 km to 22 km wide. It covers an area of 184 000 sq. km and has sand dunes which rise to a height of 240 m. It is estimated that the sands which make up Fraser Island reach over 600 m below the sea

Pros and Cons

    Fantastic island! I have to go there to see and swim in Lake Mc.Kenzie, to see the rainforest growing on the sand, to try surfing and first of all to play Tarzan :-)

    Very good page. I do not think I spent enough time on Fraser Island. What little I saw of it was quite interesting.
