Fraser Island stretches more than 100 miles in length and 20 miles at its widest point and with an area of 184,000 hectares it is the largest sand island in the world. This stunning World Heritage site ranks with Australia's Uluru, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef and is a precious part of Australia's natural and cultural heritage. Today it is protected for all to appreciate and on this two day trip you will be able to see its exceptional beauty. Fraser Island, with its crystal clear lakes, is also the only place in the world where tall rain forests grow on sand dunes.
