Australia Fraser Island

Known by the local Butchulla people as K’gari, meaning “paradise,” the world’s largest sand island more than lives up to its nickname. Emerging from lush rainforests, ancient sand dunes dissolve into turquoise lakes and coral coastlines, making the island a haven for beach-bums, hikers and adventurous sand-surfers alike.

As a camping and eco-tourism destination, development has been purposefully restricted and 4WD car rental is advised for those who want to explore further.

Don’t miss crystal-clear Lake McKenzie and the natural cove of Champagne Pools.
