World Heritage listed K’gari (Fraser Island) is the largest sand island in the world.
It features complex dune systems that are still enduring and have an array of rare and unique features, including dune lakes and tall rainforests.
K’gari was inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1992 in recognition of its outstanding natural universal values.
It is characterised by long uninterrupted white beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, majestic tall rainforests and numerous freshwater lakes of crystal clear water.
Stretching over 120km along the Southern coast of Queensland and covering 1840 sq km, it is the largest sand island in the world.
Growing on seemingly infertile sands are a great variety of plant communities ranging from coastal heath, mangrove forests and swamps to subtropical rainforest.
The many archaeological remains found on K’gari record thousands of years of culture and tradition, and provide important links to their past for the Butchulla people.
