K’gari–Fraser Island

Welcome to K’gari-Fraser Island, 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.

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-Fraser Island 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.

Dingoes: Particular caution should be taken with the island’s dingoes. It is an offence to feed, provoke or encourage dingo interactions and very heavy fines apply. Stay close to children and if approached, face the dingo and retreat calmly.

K’gari-Fraser Island Great Walk: Explore Fraser’s exceptional landscape on foot using the 90km of walking tracks between Happy Valley and Dilli Village. Follow the pathways of the island’s original inhabitants and see some of the hidden treasures like the Valley of the Giants. There are many shorter walks along the way.
