Fraser Island – The worlds largest sand island is a paradise of immense beauty and wonder. Lush rainforests, crystal clear lakes, giant trees, enormous sandblows, shipwreck, wildlife, beaches and more…
I was fortunate to have a day of four-wheel driving through this wonderland and discovered an amazing array of contrasting landscapes (eg. forests that surrond huge sandblows). A day will only afford you visits to a small number of attractions (given the size of the island and the slowish pace required to navigate the sand tracks) and entice you back to see more. The Maheno shipwreck was definitely a hightlight as was the rain forest around “Central Station” – originally used as a logging station (what were people thinkin!). Also managed Wabby Lake and Lake mcKenzie (and when “they” say crystal clear – they really mean crystal clear).
This truly is a special place!
