The largest sand island in the world, Fraser island is a small piece of heaven off the east coast of Australia. The local Aborigines even call the island K’GAri, meaning paradise – giving guests a true picture of the natural beauty they can expect to find here. Its surrounding waters are home to various wildlife: dugong, dolphins, manta rays, sharks and migrating humpback whales and measuring just 76 miles long by 14 miles wide, it has half of the world’s perched lakes making up its landscapes. And if these elements weren’t amazing enough, Fraser Island is the only discovered place in the world where rainforests are found growing from the sand.

With plenty of natural discoveries to make, Fraser Island is a short journey from Brisbane and many itineraries that will intrinsically appeal to born-adventurers. Depending on the length of time guests have available in their travel plans, we’ve selected three of the best ways to explore the island, ranging from two to five day trips.
