Located on the north of Brisbane in the Wide Bay Burnett region Fraser Island in Australia is not just a normal tour attraction, it is a World Heritage Listed site and covering an area of 1,840 square kilometres it happens to be the largest sand island in the world. This beautiful sand island goes beyond the normal notion of an ordinary sand island as it is filled with fresh water bodies, lush green rainforests home to a large variety of birds and smaller mammals, desert type area complete with sand dunes and a marine park filled with colourful corals, reef fishes and other marine life forms. The history of the island is equally fascinating and goes 5000 years back when the native Butchulla tribe used to live here and had named the island K’gari that in English means paradise. Later it was discovered by Captain James Cook and Matthew Flinders who landed near the northern point of the island in1802. The island which was then known as the Great Sandy Island was later renamed after a shipwreck survivor Mrs Eliza Fraser and thus the new name came up. The beauty of the island along with its unique bio diversity has been the reason why millions of tourists come here and why this island is on the top of the wish list of both domestic as well as foreign tourists. Even though there are lots and lots of tour agencies and travel companies operating in this area, it is Sunset Safaris which is the most recognised and the most trusted name in Fraser Island tourism. They operate from Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and offer excellent tour packages to show you the best of this amazing sand island. With all adventure and eco tours there is free room upgradation and a free tour of the famous Cooloola National Park. On top of it there is an awesome price match guarantee for those tourists who have done their own booking through the official website of Sunset Safaris and not through any agency.
The excitement starts from the journey itself as you travel on the beach road instead of taking the normal route and in Sunset Safaris’ super luxurious 4WD coaches you can really sit and enjoy the passing landscapes as you travel. The visit to Cooloola can be on your way to or while coming back from your destination but either way you will enjoy the main attractions of this national park which will include the colourful Rainbow Beach, Teewah Beach, Red Canyon, Double Island Point and Noosa north shore. Fraser Island Tour can be a highly enriching experience as you will be seeing a lot of beautiful sites, learn about dune movements, ecology along with its history and can spot a wide range of flora and fauna both on land and under water. The tour will take you for a 4WD along the 75 mile beach, see the majestic Cathedrals (huge sand dunes), Rainbow Gorge, Yiddney Dripping Rock and Indian Head from where you can spot marine animals like sharks, turtles, dolphins and manta rays swimming close to the beach. Swimming in the perched lakes, jumping in to the champagne pools, floating downstream on the fast flowing Eli’s Creek can be both fun filled and adventurous.
The visitors are taken to the Maheno shipwreck site for snorkelling and here they have the most glorious time exploring the beautiful water world. Night kayaking in the same site can be the high point of your Fraser Island 2 Day Tour as you get to see the underwater activity from the glow of the LED lights. The tour guides will take you for a hike in the rainforests and along the Hammer stone sand blows where you will know about the dune movements and will enjoy the rush of adrenaline as you race down from the sand dunes on top of a sand board as a speed that may vary between 50 to 70 kilometres per hour. The happening night life, eco glamping and the beauty of the place coupled up with the way Sunset Safaris tour guides look after all your requirements can make your time spent on Fraser Island a truly memorable one.
