Located in the Pacific Ocean off Queensland’s south-central coast, Fraser Island accommodation options range from luxury resorts to luxury beach houses, motels, and campgrounds, providing almost anyone with accommodation that fits on the doorstep of one of the world’s most beautiful areas. With pure white sand and clear blue water, this is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway for two and an adventure for the whole family.
There are many attractions suitable for different visitors. Most people enjoy basking in the tropical sun in Queensland, while others prefer a more active route and take the opportunity to see the historic MAHENO shipwreck that washed ashore during the 1935 cyclone, the dense rainforest, or perhaps the world-famous Great Barrier Reef.

There is also the option of renting a 4WD vehicle to explore the area and explore the beaches at your own pace and time. Whatever your wish, there are Fraser Island tours to suit different budgets and cater to a variety of activities. While the area is a highly desirable vacation destination and a World Heritage Site, the largest industry and perhaps the most attractive card for visitors is the whale watching industry, which attracts nearly 600,000 people from around the world each year.
If you rent a boat with a good reputation, you can be sure to see humpback whales up close during the peak season, which starts in July every year. Other native wildlife abounds in the region, including species such as jabiru, wallabies, dingoes, fruit bats, and echidnas. The enchanting underwater world includes turtles, tortoises, dolphins, and of course whales. The flora is also stunning with 1,000 years of rainforest and wetlands to explore.
