Deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fraser Island is not only the largest sand island in the world, but also the only place where tall rainforests are found growing on sand dunes. Also perched on the dunes are the island’s blue freshwater lakes that are perfect for cooling down on a hot, Queensland day. It is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and a refreshing change from the bustle of mainland Australia and the resort islands of Queensland’s north. The island’s untamed wilderness and rugged, natural charm entices adventurers with opportunities for outdoor excitement, as sun worshippers who prefer a relaxing atmosphere at the eco-friendly Kingfisher Bay Resort.
