An alluring mixture of breathtaking beaches, ancient rainforests, lustrous lakes, enormous sand dunes, devine weather, and wildlife including the purest lineage of Dingos - the Fraser Coast is full of natural wonders.
Fraser Coast accommodation ranges from the World Heritage listed Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, to the coastal community of Hervey Bay, to the north of which lies Bundaberg where you will find a rum-guzzling polar bear, and finally to the south you have the striking Rainbow Beach.
To the local Aboriginals Fraser Island is ‘K’Gari’, which very appropriately translates to paradise. Sand from all down the eastern coast is said to eventually land at Fraser Island to contribute to its 120 kilometre by 15 kilometre mass built over 800 000 years of longshore drift. The island is famed for its enigmatic beauty which can be appreciated from atop the dunes or ‘sandblows’ that reach up to 224 metres in height. From this vantage point whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles, passing ships and boats and even a few of the 40 odd lakes peppered across the island can be admired. Local knowledge is important when visiting Fraser Island, so it is best to consult an expert – speak to Discover Queensland on 1300 788 553 to book your Fraser Coast accommodation.
