Fraser Island, just north of the Sunshine Coast, is the world's largest sand island, over 70 miles long and an average of 10 miles wide. Apart from a surf beach that stretches for about 50 miles, there are rainforests waiting to be explored, crystal clear freshwater lakes and wild life. Whale watching gets you close to the big humpbacks during the migration seasons (between August and October).

Wild Life
Fraser Island boasts around 230 species of birds and 25 species of mammals including wallabies, possums, flying foxes, echidnas and Eastern Australia's purest breed of dingo. The warm waters surrounding the Island attract dugong, dolphins and turtles.

Lake McKenzie
There are several lakes on Fraser Island each with its own individual character - from lakes stained red with tannin to others with pure white sand and crystal clear water. One such lake is Lake McKenzie. Although it is not the island's biggest lake,it is the best known. Its beach is considered by some to rank amongst the world's ten best beaches.

Flora in Abundance
An exceptional range of flora is found on Fraser Island. Cool and peaceful rainforests of towering Satinay and Brush Box trees, some over 1,000 years old, contrast with swampy wetlands, heathlands full of wild flowers and coastal strands of Pandanus palms.

Whale Watching
Between August and October each year, Hervey Bay becomes Australia's whale watching capital! The Bay's calm waters provide shelter for humpback whales and their calves as they frolic in Hervey Bay on their migration to Antarctica after giving birth in the waters of northern Queensland.
