Fraser Island is known to the Kabi Aborigines as Gurri or K’gair, named after a beautiful woman so taken with the earth that she stayed behind after creation.
Possums, dingoes and wallabies inhabit the island and you will find dugongs feeding on sea grass, turtles nesting and humpback whales using Platypus Bay as a playground.
The island is awash with colour; blinding white sand flanks the milky turquoise and inky blue-black lakes, the dense green centre contrasting wonderfully.
Explore the island
Don your walking boots and climb the dramatic sand dunes and take a dip in Eli Creek or amble along Seventy-Five Mile Beach to the eerie ruins of the Maheno shipwreck.
Regular barges sail to the island for those planning on exploring by 4WD, or alternatively a fast ferry or a helicopter will whisk you to the island if you wish to base yourself at the resort.
