Fraser Island Holidays

The world heritage listed Fraser Island is located on the south coast of Queensland, stretching over 123 kilometres long and 22 kilometres at its widest point, making it the largest sand island in the world. This area of outstanding natural beauty is surrounded by ferocious waters, which contribute to the numbers of shipwrecks lying off its shores. Discover pristine white beaches, colourful sand cliffs, ancient rainforests and crystal clear creeks.  

On a holiday to Fraser Island it’s essential to embark on a 4WD adventure as the island is recognised as being four wheel drive territory. So hit the sandy highway of Seventy-Five Mile Beach and the hundreds of sand tracks linking the lakes and rainforest. For a bird’s eye view, you can enjoy a scenic flight over Cathedral Beach, Happy Valley and Orchid Beach.

I loved exploring Fraser and bombing down Seventy Five Mile Beach in our four wheel drive. Then in the evening we sat around the fire and had an Aussie BBQ under the stars.
