Review on Fraser Island

Fraser Island stretches over 123 kilometres in length and 22 kilometres at its widest point. With an area of 184 000 hectares it is the largest sand island in the world.

From Frasers rich history it holds to its beauty, no wonder why it is one of the most popular holidaying places in Australia if not the world.

There are plenty of things to see and do on the island such as the crystal clear waters of Champagne pools, to pure white sands of lake Mackenzie. There is also Eli Creek which is the largest creek on the eastern beach and pours up to 4 million Liters of clear fresh water into the ocean every hour. Eli creek is every popular with the tourists and offers a great place to swim or relax. Other great places  to visit on the island are Maheno wreck, The Pinnacles, The Cathedrals, Indian head and middle rocks just to name a few.

When Planing your trip to Fraser it is important to consider a lot of things, and it is also very important to do as much research as possible.
