K’gari (Fraser Island)

K’gari (Fraser Island) is the largest sand island in the world. It stretches over 123 kilometres in length and 22 kilometres at its widest point. Its World Heritage listing ranks it with Australia’s Uluru, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef.

It is the only place in the world where tall rainforests grow on sand dunes and is home to many dingos – the native Australian dog – and the magnificent Lake McKenzie with pristine blue waters and white sandy shores.

It is an island of exceptional natural beauty and has over 250km of sandy beaches with long uninterrupted sweeps of ocean beach, more than 40km of strikingly coloured sand cliffs, spectacular dune blowouts, tall rainforests, perched dune lakes, banksia woodlands, heath and mangrove areas in a spectacular mosaic landscape.
