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 seagrass, turtles nesting and humpback whales using Platypus Bay as a playground.

The island is awash with color; blinding white sand flanks the milky turquoise and inky blue-black lakes, the dense green center contrasting wonderfully.
