World heritage listed Fraser Island in Australia is famous as a tour destination both for its natural beauty and for its rich Aboriginal and European history and the exciting tale of how the island was named after a shipwreck survivor Eliza Fraser. According to the Archaeological research, Fraser Island was initially occupied by the aboriginal Australian tribes some 5000 years ago before it was discovered by Captain James Cook and later by Matthew Flinders. The native Butchulla people had named the island K’gari which means paradise when you translate it to English. Only when you visit this sand island which happens to be the largest in the world then only you will realize how apt this ancient name was and after so many years how it still remains a natural paradise and is undoubtedly one of the most sought after tour destinations in the world.

This beautiful island is made up of sand that has been accumulating for almost 750,000 years and its unique bio diversity is what makes it such an interesting place. Fresh water bodies, rainforests growing on sand dunes, pristine beaches and a huge variety of plants and animal life both on land and under the sea has made it a perfect tour destination for the domestic as well as foreign tourists.
