FRASER Island is the world's largest sand island - with adventures that come in bucketloads.

It has to be the easiest trek to a World Heritage-listed island - so accessible, a mere 50-minute ferry ride from Hervey Bay, near Brisbane. Yet upon arrival, a natural wonderland amid the world's largest sand island unfolds.

It's the ultimate stress-free holiday zone, full of contrasts - endless beaches and giant sand dunes backed by unspoilt ancient rainforest wilderness, freshwater streams and lakes and an array of flora and fauna.

Worlds away from the everyday, Fraser Island makes the perfect venue for aquatic adventures as well as exploration of the giant sand dunes and rainforests via four-wheel drive vehicles. Take to the sand tracks in your own 4WD or hire one from Hervey Bay or the renowned Kingfisher Bay Resort on the western side of the island.

Eurong Beach Resort, close to stunning 75 Mile Beach, offers a casually laid-back atmosphere while Kingfisher Bay Resort makes the ideal base for exploring the World Heritage wilderness, with ranger-guided tours and spectacular vistas. Many opt for a relaxed beach holiday, including fishing from the jetty or stand-up paddle boarding and canoeing. Kingfisher Bay Resort provides acclaimed accommodation for family and friends with seasonal deals on offer.

Fraser Island is all about adventure, beauty and Nature - an island of contrasts and the ideal family escape.
