K’gari (Formerly Fraser Island)

Welcome to K’gari, the world’s largest sand island. Translated to paradise by the Traditional Owners of the land, the Butchulla people, K’gari is a World Heritage-listed wonder of diverse landscapes and unique wildlife experiences.

K’gari (pronounced ‘GAH-ree’) Formerly Fraser Island is located just 360 km north of Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane, and just a short 40-minute ferry ride from the mainland here in Hervey Bay.

Established over hundreds of thousands of years, beyond the world heritage listed K’gari, ancient sand dunes and long stretches of beautiful beaches boasts crystal clear freshwater lakes and creeks (did someone say Lake McKenzie?), lush rainforests and an abundance of native flora and fauna to explore.

K’gari offers camping, cabin and resort-style accommodation to suit all types of holiday makers. Eco-adventures on the island include cruises discovering the untouched beauty of the remote western side, a 90km Great Walk adventure and guided or self-drive tours.
