Located 125 mi/200 km north of Brisbane and named for shipwrecked Englishwoman Eliza Fraser, this island north of Noosa Heads is the largest coastal dune system in the world. A paradise of beaches, coves and wildlife (such as the Australian dingo), Fraser Island also has lush forests and clear lakes that contrast dramatically with its wind-sculpted sand. http://www.fraserisland.net.
Fraser Island is best negotiated by four-wheel-drive vehicles driven onto barges at Inskip Point. Tour operators will rent the vehicles as well as pick you up at Hervey Bay airport or from accommodations on the mainland and on the island.
