This is Fraser Island. A World Heritage site and so large that it contains rainforests, over 100 freshwater lakes and its own registered highway on a beach 75 miles long. Oh, and a pretty cool shipwreck.


Because there are a good few things to do on this island, I have split this post into parts. This post shows you Lake Wabby, reachable after a long uphill walk through forests. The walk is a good one however, the incline only gradual over a distance.IMG_7784IMG_7785IMG_7786IMG_7788

The walk to the lake itself is a fairly long one too, especially over sand. It is reachable with a walk (or fall) down a very steep dune, which can be pretty tiring when trying to get back up.


Have you ever visited this island? Hopefully my upcoming posts from here will convince you to!!

There is plenty to be found here with a little exploration…

Stay tuned.

    1. It’s really quiet so there isn’t any litter, which is great. It is pretty unique I guess for such a large island to have such a small population πŸ™‚

  1. Wow it looks beautiful!! Is it really as quiet and uninhabited as your pictures make it seem? Not overrun with tourists?

    1. It’s exactly what it is like in the pictures! Because it is an island and you either need a coach or a 4×4, it isn’t busy at all. According to Wikipedia the population is 194. There are a few campsites and one resort but that’s it πŸ™‚

    1. It must be one of the longest! It depends what you are looking for really, if you’re looking for palm trees this isn’t the place, but if you like to stumble upon a shipwreck then it definitely is πŸ™‚

    1. It was inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1992. I’ve just looked at the list, there is so many in so many countries!

      1. Exciting! No worries, feel free to ask questions and I will also have blog posts specifically on Australia in my Travel Diary section πŸ™‚
