K'gari, Whales and fun on the Fraser Coast

A short 3 hour drive north of Brisbane, Hervey Bay is the main gateway for K'gari (Fraser Island) the largest sand island in the world. Due to its historic and geographical significance K'gari is World Heritage listed as it meets a specific set of criteria that are of outstanding universal value. Boasting over 100 freshwater lakes, the Maheno Shipwreck, monstrous sand blows and an impressive 120km highway that is 75 mile beach on the eastern side of K'gari.

On the western side of the island enjoy the fresh water creeks, pristine waters that make Awinya and Wathumba Creek, Moon Point and the extensive Sea Grass meadows that our resident Dugong and Sea Turtles love to feed on.

Just as unique as K'gari, are the Humpback Whales who come to rest and play on their annual migration to have their young.  It is here you will see the most incredible display of acrobatic abilities that these enormous mammals perform.

For the adventurous, there's always sky diving, aqua sports and so much more.
