Fraser Island: Fraser Island is deceptively large, and if you are driving yourself, you will probably need to stay out on the Island. If timing is short, suggest taking one of the day tours or booking a 2 day, 1 night tour.

How do plants live in the Sand?: Plants will not usually grow very well in ocean sand. Fraser Island has a special kind of fungus that grows in the sand. It releases enough nutrients into the sand to allow natural vegetation to take hold.

Dingoes and Wildlife: One of the largest wild dingo packs in Australia call Fraser Island home. Care should be taken approaching them. Remember they are still wild animals, living in the wild.
