Islands - Fraser Island, South Pacific

Back to Map 

Visited: Late Jan / Early Aug

A unique combination of an island made of sand, with lakes and rainforest, preserved almost completely as a national park. There is a surreal diversity of landscapes from rainforests to dry forests to heathlands, with extensive exposed sand patches, and idyllic fresh-water lakes that manage not to soak away into the sand. Although close to the Australian mainland, it still has a definite island feel with one of the longest stretches of ocean on the world to the east of the ocean beaches.
