“If you are a bit adventurous then this trip even though a few hours away is worth a look. Follow in the footsteps of the royals and visit Fraser Island to be dwarfed by the ancient, gravity defying rainforests growing out of only sand and to explore the freshwater lakes and spectacularsand formations of one of the most incredible islands on earth. World Heritage-listed Fraser Island has the absolute best that one island can offer – cool towering rainforests to walk through; over 100 freshwater lakes to swim including the iconic Lake McKenzie and Lake Wabby, huge sand blows to climb, and an amazing 120km beach highway, complete with the Maheno shipwreck and cliffs of stunning coloured sands. Lying off the coast of Hervey Bay and just south of the last of the Great Barrier Reef’s coral cays, Fraser is the world’s largest sand island and stretches for 123km and spans 166,000 hectares. Unforgettable island eco-adventures include cruises to discover the untouched beauty of the remote western side and guided or self-drive tours.
