K’gari (Fraser Island)

Iconic for being the world’s largest sand island, World Heritage-listed K’gari (Fraser Island) offers unusual – and exhilarating – surprises at every turn. Not only is it the only place on Earth where tall rainforests grow on sand dunes at elevations of more than 200 metres (656 feet), but it also has half the world’s perched lakes (lakes formed when depressions in dunes fill permanently with rainwater). Within minutes of landing on K’gari, you’ll feel its magic. Drive on wide-open beaches with the wind in your hair, marvel at shifting sand blows, swim in iridescent waters and witness playful marine life just metres from shore. Complete with a blend of luxury resorts and back to nature camping, there’s a wilderness adventure for everyone on K’gari.
