16 Jul Enjoy a Fraser Island Day Trip
While you are enjoying your visit to Coolum Beach, take the opportunity to investigate all that Fraser Island has to offer.
This heritage-listed island is located along the southern coast of Queensland. Measuring over 123 kilometres in length and 25 kilometres at its widest point, Fraser Island is the largest of the world’s sand islands. It is home to over 100 freshwater lakes; some are filled by the ocean and are a beautiful champagne color, and some are crystal clear. Visitors can also enjoy exploring Fraser Island’s ancient rainforests that grow along the clear, beautiful creeks.
Fraser Island is known for its beauty and its complex dune formations. These dunes are among the longest dune systems in the world. They offer insight into the age sequence of coastal dune systems, and they are continuing to evolve today. Fraser Island is an intricate part of Australia’s heritage, and is protected so that it can continue to be enjoyed by all.
Fraser Island is most famous for its population of dingoes, who are believed to be Eastern Australia’s last remaining pure dingoes. Because wild dingoes are an essential part of Fraser Island’s ecosystem, visitors are prohibited from feeding or interacting with them. Fraser Island is also home to a number of other small mammals and a variety of birds and amphibians, including freshwater crocodiles.
Though there are no roads on Fraser Island, there are numerous 4wd and walking tracks. Organised day tours are available, and guests staying at Club Coolum Beach Resort can conveniently book them onsite. While you are visiting Fraser Island, take the opportunity to Central Station, an old logging station that closed in the 1960’s.
