Fraser is an offshore island east of Queensland, 200km north of Brisbane. The island is 123km long, 24km wide, 1840km2 area and is the largest island of Queensland, Australia’s 6th largest.
Fraser Island stretches over 123 km and the largest size measured is 22 km. With an area of 184,000 hectares, Fraser is considered as the largest sand island in the world. Fraser Island is a World Heritage Site of the same rank with Uluru, Kakadu and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Fraser is a valuable part of Australia’s natural and cultural heritage, so the island is always protected and preserved.
Fraser Island is a place of extraordinary beauty, with unbroken white sand beaches, sandy cliffs that stand out to the sea, and over 100 freshwater lakes, of which some Green is green, others are blue, and all are surrounded by white sand beaches. Ancient tropical forests thrive on the sand along the banks of a clear river.
Fraser Island is the only place in the world that can find much rainforest and grow on sand dunes at over 200 meters. The vast sand dunes and colorful sandstone cliffs are part of the world’s longest, longest sand dune system and are still growing today. The tallest sand dunes on the island up to 240 meters above sea level.
The young sand dunes behind the eastern beaches are generally stable but not seasonally altered by spinifex and other coastal plants adapting to the salt and wind conditions. Also within the central part of the island, sand dunes are often very stable and have many nutrients for the development of diverse plant systems.
The sandy beaches on Fraser Island appear north of Eli Creek and consist of about 72 different colors, mostly red and yellow. The colors are caused by the osmosis of the oxides that produce the colors.
Seventy-Five Mile Beach is an excellent beach highway, where all road rules apply. The speed limit is 80 km / h and you have to give way to the plane landing and taking off. . Fishing here is great, but strong waves and possibly large sharks are dangerous so it is best not to swim here.
There are about 40 large and small lakes found on the island. These lakes are formed when organic substances, such as leaves, bark and dead plants, gradually accumulate and harden, plus the wind creates holes. The most famous lake is Wabby with a record depth of 11.4m. There are also other famous lakes such as Lake Mckenzie, with clear blue water and white sand, covering more than 150 hectares and more than five meters deep. This lake is located on a sand dune 100 meters above sea level.
