If you are touring anywhere north of Brisbane on the coast of Queensland, a visit to Fraser Island is an absolute must. Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, stretching over 120km. Fraser Island is another one of Australia’s World Heritage listed locations. It’s right up there with Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef.
Fraser Island is located about 4 hours drive north of Brisbane or 1.5 hours drive from Bundaberg. Flights are available from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney direct to Hervey Bay. Getting across to Fraser Island is as easy as catching a passenger ferry or boarding a barge for vehicles.
If you are planning to drive on to Fraser Island, you need to know this is pure 4WDing country. The beach is actually the highway that runs up the surf side of the beach. Vehicle permits are required. 75-Mile beach is known for some of the best fishing in the world, and that’s all year round. Whiting and Bream are ample during the summer while Swallowtail are fished for all year round. The fishing season really heats up in winter when anglers head for Tailor season.
