So, if the fact that this island is world heritage listed, is the largest sand island in the world and the ONLY sand island in the world with a rainforest, and you’re still not pumped to get here, read on...

There Are Sand Dunes For Days

Meet The Locals

Dingo, Fraser Island

Did you know that there are over 500 Dingo’s roaming the island? During your trip, you’re pretty much guaranteed to come across them at some point, but, remember they are wild animals. You should not approach or feed them.

Drink From The Local Creek

Ok, so tap water is available (and probably the preferred option), but did you know that the crystal clear water found in the famous Eli Creek is actually drinkable! But, if drinking out of a creek isn’t your thing, at least pack a floaty so you can float your way along it!

Go Lake Hopping

We simply cannot get enough of the lakes on this island. The great thing is, there are over 100 freshwater lakes that you can swim in. So, make sure you pack your swimmers and your sunscreen, you’re going to need it!
