Fraser Island (with an area of 1,800 km2) is a long island (about 120 km) located on the north-eastern coast of Australia, in front of the coast of Harvey Bay, in the state of Queensland.
Fraser Island is approximately 300 km north of Brisbane.
Fraser Island is said to be the largest sand-island all over the world; it’s listed as a World Heritage Site since 1992.
However, what makes this island unique worldwide, further than its sandy beaches and breath-taking views of the ocean, is the total lack of paved roads : the only highway on the island is actually a long beach, practicable only by 4x4 jeeps.
