Location & Things to do
Fraser Island is located off Australia’s eastern Queensland coast. Not only is it the world's largest sand island - stretching over 120km - but it's the only place on Earth where tall rain forests grow on sand dunes at elevations of more than 200 metres (656 feet). Home to the most pure strain of dingoes remaining in eastern Australia, and one of the best places to see baby humpback whales and their mothers, Fraser Island also has superb scenery, with massive shifting sand blows, sensational swimming spots and thrilling 4WD tracks. Panoramic viewpoints include Indian Head, a rocky outcrop on the island's easternmost tip, and the Cathedrals, a cliff famous for sculpted ribbons of coloured sand. It's a camping and ecotourism destination, with beaches and swimming sites at Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby and other freshwater pools. A World Heritage-listed wilderness with lots of resort-style comforts, Fraser is the perfect place to go wild!
THINGS TO DO:
World Heritage-listed Fraser Island has the absolute best that one island can offer! Plan a day or two before or after the conference to experience this incredible island: explore the rain forest and swim in a rainwater lake; wave to a whale on a whale watching cruise or drive the length of famous 75 Mile Beach. These and much more expects you on Fraser Island!
