K’Gari (Fraser Island)
World Heritage Listed Fraser Island - The World's largest sand island!
Just a taste of this World Heritage listed paradise will leave you feeling charmed and captivated. Fraser Island is a unique natural environment - the largest sand island in the world and the only place on the planet where old growth rain-forest grows on sand.
Fraser Island's abundant pristine fresh water lakes and crystal clear creeks are great spots to view unique flora and fauna and also provide a welcome oasis on hot summer days. Scenic four wheel drive circuits and walking tracks take in some of the largest of the lakes, cool and peaceful rain-forests of towering satiny and brush box trees, some over a thousand years old, contrast with swampy wetlands, heath lands full of wild flowers and coastal stands of Pandanus palms.

Heritage at it's best!
Located three hours North of Brisbane, Maryborough was a major immigration port into Australia and a visit to the Wharf Street Precinct retains many reminders of this period.
Much of Maryborough's character has been preserved in classic Queenslander houses, mostly built of local timber in a range of sizes and designs. Gracing the city's broad tree-lined streets, these homes have given Maryborough a reputation as one of the most beautiful historic locations in Queensland.
Enjoy the Maryborough Heritage markets every Thursday morning and meet the Town Crier and Mary Heritage! The Maryborough time cannon, fired every Thursday at 1pm has a rich history & you can find this out and more at the Maryborough Heritage Gateway on Wharf Street.
