World Heritage Fraser Island is located 189 miles north of Brisbane. The gateway to the island is Hervey Bay in central
Queensland. The claim to fame for Fraser is that it is the biggest sand island in the world (405,000 acres). It has a 75-mile long beach and is known for its eucalyptus woodlands,
sand dunes, ancient rain forest and dingoes. The island has no roads so it is a favorite place for people in 4WD vehicles. It is also a great place for fishing.
The ancient rainforest.
There are no roads and the only way to get around is in a 4WD vehicle.
The Pinnacles have been sculpted by the winds and the colors come from the iron oxides in the sands of Fraser Island.
