FRASER ISLAND

World heritage listed Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world with its own Eco system consisting of some very unique flora and fauna. The island is only a short boat ride from Tin Can Bay but the recommended way to see Fraser Island is either by taking a tour or by four wheel drive. The barges from Inskip point to Fraser Island are running every day and start around 7.am and stop around 5 p.m. and are the only way to get to Fraser for those with 4 wheel drive vehicles.
