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.

Things to do on Fraser Island

Considered to be the best place in the world for spotting giant humpback whales, the opportunity to cruise next to these magnificent creatures should not be missed. Explore and be captivated by the Aboriginal heritage that gives this stunning island its distinctive charming character which has allowed it to be one of the most popular destinations in Australia.

There's plenty to do and see on a holiday to Fraser Island and our travel designers can you give you lots of recommendations for a trip of a life time. Four wheel drive by the coloured sand cliffs of The Cathedrals, camp under the stars or stay in luxury, bush walk through rainforest and enjoy the marine life and wildlife of the world's largest sand island with Austravel.  You can reach Frazer Island on the Pacific Coast Touring Route or Great Sunshine Way.

Rest a while to float at fast-flowing Eli Creek, which flows straight to the ocean or enjoy a refreshing dip at low tide in the clear sea water of the Champagne Pools.

Take time to visit Lake McKenzie, enjoy a picnic at Lake Allom to see turtles and spot whales from Indian Head. See kangaroos, wallabies and possums on a bushwalk into the interior and in Happy Valley, discover the historic Maheno shipwreck to learn about the formation of the island its fascinating Aboriginal history. You’ll soon see why the Aboriginal owners called Fraser Island ‘K'gari' or paradise.

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.
