K'gari (Fraser Island)
K'GARI (FRASER ISLAND)
Stunning K’gari (formerly Fraser Island) is the world's largest sand island off the east coast of Queensland, around three and a half hours drive north of Brisbane. World Heritage-listed in recognition of its magnificent sand dunes, rainforests, beaches and freshwater lakes. K’gari offers visitors a range of activities for a relaxing or adventure-filled getaway. A literal translation of the name, K’gari, given to the island by the Butchulla people, is paradise and we agree.
The island’s freshwater lakes, bushwalking trails, four-wheel driving tracks, along with its importance in the annual Humpback Whale migration and as home to the purest breed of dingo in Australia makes K’gari a unique experience for visitors of all ages. Swimming in freshwater lakes and basking on pure white sand, feeling the freedom when driving Seventy-five Mile Beach or exploring the inland rainforest tracks are just some of the memories you will make on K’gari. And if you like fishing, there’s plenty of that too!
