Long beaches, dramatic coloured-sand cliffs, natural sandblows, rocky headlands and pristine freshwater lakes and streams are some of K’gari (Fraser Island’s) spectacular natural features.
Growing on seemingly infertile sands are a great variety of plant communities ranging from coastal heath, mangrove forests and swamps to subtropical rainforest.
The many archaeological remains found on K’gari record thousands of years of culture and tradition, and provide important links to their past for the Butchulla people.
