A holiday tour of the World Heritage Listed Fraser Island is a wish come true for most of the tourists all around the globe. Covering an area of 184000 hectares, this beautiful sandy island stretches for almost 123 km in length and is around 22 kilometre at its widest point. Located along the southern coast of Queensland, Fraser Island happens to be the largest sand island in the World and along with Moreton Island it becomes the largest sand structure to be found anywhere across the World. Going to this island and spending some exciting yet relaxing time can make you realize how astute the natives of the island were.
The Butuchullas who inhabited the island some thousands of years back had named it K'gari which when translated into English means paradise. Being part of the Great Sandy National Park, it has maintained its natural beauty and has preserved its bio diversity. So every year thousands of people visit Fraser Island enticed by its soft golden beaches, lush green rainforests, fresh water lakes, lagoons, creeks, sand dunes and sand blows ideal for sand tobogganing, perched lakes and a variety of flora and fauna both on land and under water. Before visiting the area, it's a great idea to read about its aboriginal and European history, so that you can relate to it while visiting the island. Many educational institutions conduct excursion trips for the children, where they can study about its unique biodiversity, study the dune movements and explore the magical water world.
