Located approximately 3 and a half hours north of Brisbane, Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. Easily accessible by barge, the island adds to its 'worldly' achievements as a significant part of Australia's natural and cultural heritage, protected by a World Heritage listing along with its close neighbour the Great Barrier Reef. Home to a unique natural environment, Fraser Island boasts lush rainforests - the only place in the world where it grows from sand. A rare and mysterious gem off Queensland's coastline, Fraser is rich in Aboriginal heritage and European history.
As one of Australia's most sought after holiday destinations, Fraser Island is dotted with a range of accommodation to suit every taste and budget. Families, couples and groups are all well catered for on the island with Kingfisher Bay Resort one of the more popular places to stay. With a list of facilities longer than the island itself, guests can enjoy access to a swimming pool and spa, beauty therapy and massage treatments, a tennis court, child minding services, a range of restaurants and bars as well as a number of general stores and boutiques.
