One Of The Only Places On Earth Where Rainforest Grows In Sand At Elevations Of 200m

Imagine towering pines, rainforest trees with three metre girths, rare and ancient giant ferns, eucalypt forests with their characteristic pendulous leaves,lemon-scented swamp vegetation and dwarfed heathland shrubs covered in a profusion of flowers.

Now imagine them all growing on an island of sand.

Two of Fraser Island's unique features are its diversity of vegetation and its ability to sustain this vegetation in sand, a soil that is notoriously low in nutrients essential to plant growth. Plants growing on the dunes can obtain their nutrients (other than nitrogen) from only two sources - rain and sand.

What Our Clients Say

Where to even start...we have such lovely memories! We are two girls in our twenties and we did the two-day tour staying overnight in the Eurong resort. Definitely do the two days, one just isn't enough.

We did the 2 day tour (fiancee and I), and absolutely loved everything. Our guide was amazing; he is incredibly knowledgeable not just of the tour stops, but the flora and fauna as well.

My boyfriend and I took a one day tour on Fraser last February, and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday...our only regret was that we took the one day tour instead of two day tour!

This trip was awesome - mainly because of the absolutely legendary guide, who drove us around the island and did not spare any effort to make this trip an unforgettable experience for all of us.
