Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. Spanning 120 kilometres long and 24 kilometres wide,  Fraser Island is filled with challenging inland four wheel drive tracks and beautiful stretches of pristine beaches. Fraser Island has many different landscapes ranging from eucalyptus woodlands to sand dunes and rainforests. There are an abundance of fresh and salt water lakes to spend your days relaxing, or for the more active explorer, the varying terrain will challenge even the most experienced four wheel driver. There really is no shortage of adventure when visiting Fraser Island
