K'gari (Fraser Island), Great Sandy National Park
What it's all about
The fun, the excitement
More than a million years in the making, World Heritage-listed K'gari (Fraser Island), in the Great Sandy National Park, is a place of incredible natural beauty.
Drive and walk through fragrant open woodlands, lush towering rainforests and colourful wallum banksia heathlands. Discover magical perched and mirror lakes nestled in the dunes, climb creeping sandblows, relax in picturesque picnic areas and spend hours on long golden beaches flanking the Great Sandy Marine Park.
The island's rich forests, heaths and woodlands are a haven for wildlife, including the world-renowned Fraser Island dingoes. Possibly the purest dingo population in Australia, their conservation and continued welfare is of national significance.
Explore K'gari’s shoreline by boat, and slip your canoe or kayak into the calm waters of Pelican and Marloo bays. Try your hand at reeling in a fish for dinner—delicious table fish like whiting, bream, salmon, mangrove jack and flathead are yours for the taking.
The Butchulla (Badtjala) Aboriginal people have ancient connections with K’gari (Fraser Island) and continue to walk in the footsteps of their ancestors.
