Cruises from Fraser Island
Fraser Island, off Australia’s eastern Queensland coast, is the world's largest sand island, stretching over 120km, and visited only by 4-wheel drive vehicles. Panoramic viewpoints include Indian Head, a rocky outcrop on the island's easternmost tip, and the Cathedrals, a cliff famous for sculpted ribbons of coloured sand. It's a destination with popular beaches and swimming sites at Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby, and other freshwater pools. Fraser Island is the only place in the world where tall rainforests are found growing on sand dunes at elevations of over 200 metres. Read more
