About Fraser Island

Life's a beach on the world's largest sand island.

White sandy beaches ring the jewel-like freshwater lakes of McKenzie, Birrabeen, Wabby and Boomanjin which come in colours of sapphire blue, emerald green and oxide red.

Famous Seventy-Five Mile Beach forms a highway that runs up the surf side of the island. Fraser Island is strictly four-wheel driving territory and the beach doubles as a landing strip for planes making joy flights.

See mighty sand blows, cliffs of coloured sands, the wreck of the cruise ship Maheno rusting on the beach and the kaleidoscopic colours of nature as the sun rises out of the sea.

Climb off the beach at Indian Head to see dolphins, sharks and rays swimming below and fantastic 360 degree views of the island and the Pacific Ocean. Watch humpback whales off the beach from May until October.

Swim in the Champagne Pools as the sea crashes over the rocks. Float down the fast-flowing waters of Eli Creek to the beach. It is the largest creek on the beach and more fun than a water slide.

Follow walking tracks off the beach to climb desert-like sand blows and find Lake Wabby, Red Canyon and Rainbow Gorge where there is even a waterfall in the sand.

World Heritage Fraser Island, an Australian icon, has endless beaches and endless possibilities for swimming in the lakes, walking, playing, climbing, fishing, fourwheel driving and just relaxing in the sun.
