Visit Fraser Island to be dwarfed by the ancient, gravity defying rainforests growing out of only sand and explore the freshwater lakes and formations of one of the most incredible islands on earth. World Heritage-listed Fraser Island has the absolute best that one island can offer – cool towering rainforests to walk through; over 100 freshwater lakes to swim including the iconic Lake McKenzie and Lake Wabby, huge sand blows to climb, and an amazing 120km beach highway, complete with the Maheno shipwreck and cliffs of stunning coloured sands. Just south of the last of the Great Barrier Reef’s coral cays, Fraser is the world’s largest sand island and stretches for 123km and spans 166,000 hectares.
Fraser Island offers some of the best beach fishing experiences in the world, and provides options for young novice anglers and seasoned fishing professionals. Be it fishing off 75 Mile Beach on the eastern side of Fraser Island, at Sandy Cape or Indian Head, Fraser Island offers a diverse range of fish species including whiting, dart, tailor and jewfish.
Platypus Bay is also one the favourite stops for humpback whales during their 5,000km migration back to Antarctica. Cruise the sheltered waters of Platypus Bay and enjoy breathtaking sights as you travel past the beautiful white sandy beaches of Fraser Island and venture into the whales playground.
