Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef - Fraser Island & the Fraser Coast (Chapter)
This is the Fraser Island & the Fraser Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef guidebook.
Nature buffs will beeline it to World Heritage–listed Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island; but its seaside community launching pads are also refreshingly unaffected, while Bundaberg, the largest city in the region, overlooks a sea of waving sugar cane and is famous for its fiery, golden rum.
- cruise up the beach ‘highway’, and explore the rainforest on Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island
- beach camp under the stars in the Great Sandy National Park
- restaurants & accommodation
- watch the humpback whales play in Hervey Bay
Coverage includes: Fraser Coast, Gympie, Rainbow Beach, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Childers, Burrum Coast National Park, Bundaberg & around and Fraser Island.
