The Aboriginals call this Island K’gari (meaning paradise) because there’s something undoubtedly special about Fraser Island. Its bountiful forests, picture-perfect beaches, azure seas and freshwater lakes have all earned it World Heritage-listed status. The Fraser Island Great Walk is undoubtedly the best way to experience all of this.
Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island. It consists purely of sand and yet it supports large stands of lush tropical rainforest. On this Fraser Island trip, you’ll see an extraordinary array of buttress-rooted trees, strangler figs, rare primitive cycads and huge satinays. Some of the massive trees are more than 6 metres wide and over 1000 years old. The sands also support more than forty crystal-clear freshwater lakes. Our favourite, Lake McKenzie, is rightfully known as the jewel of Fraser Island. Don’t forget to pack the swimming gear.
Your journey on foot on the Fraser Island Great Walk encompasses an amazing variety of landscapes. Much of the walking is remote, enabling you to immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of this unblemished natural environment entirely away from the busy tourist routes. The island also abounds with wildlife, whales, wallabies, dolphins and dugongs frolic and roam freely. It’s also a bird lover’s paradise with over 240 species recorded in the area.
