WORLD HERITAGE

Fraser Island

Inscribed 1992

"Stretching over 120 kilometres along the southern coast of Queensland, Fraser Island (184 000 hectares) is the largest sand island in the world. It was inscribed on the World Heritage List in recognition of its outstanding natural universal values:

as an outstanding example representing significant ongoing ecological and biological processes; and

as an example of superlative natural phenomena.

The island is a place of exceptional beauty, with its long uninterrupted white beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, its majestic tall rainforests and numerous freshwater lakes of crystal clear waters.

The massive sand deposits that make up the island are a continuous record of climatic and sea level changes over the past 700 000 years.

Fraser Island features complex dune systems that are still evolving, and an array of dune lakes that is exceptional in its number, diversity and age.

The highest dunes on the island reach up to 240 metres above sea level. Forty perched dune lakes, half the number of such lakes in the world, can be found on the island. These lakes are formed when organic matter, such as leaves, bark and dead plants, gradually build up and harden in depressions created by the wind.

The island also has several barrage lakes, formed when moving sand dunes block a watercourse, and 'window' lakes, formed when a depression exposes part of the regional water table.

A surprising variety of vegetation types grow on the island, ranging from coastal heath to subtropical rainforests. It is the only place in the world where tall rainforests are found growing on sand dunes at elevations of over 200 metres.

The low 'wallum' heaths on the island are of particular evolutionary and ecological significance, providing magnificent wildflower displays in spring and summer.

Birds are the most abundant form of animal life on the island with over 350 species being recorded. It is a particularly important site for migratory wading birds which use the area as a resting place during their long flights between southern Australia and their breeding grounds in Siberia.

A species of particular interest is the endangered ground parrot, which is found in the wallum heathlands.

Few mammal species are present on the island. The most common are bats, particularly flying foxes. The dingo population on the island is regarded as the most pure strain of dingoes remaining in eastern Australia.

The lakes on Fraser Island are poor habitats for fish and other aquatic species because of the purity, acidity and low nutrient levels of the water. Some frog species are adapted to survive in this difficult environment. Appropriately called 'acid frogs', they tolerate the acidic condition characteristic of the Fraser Island lakes and swamps

Called K'gari by its Aboriginal inhabitants, the island reveals Aboriginal

occupation of at least 5 000 years, although it is possible that further

archaeological work may indicate earlier occupation. Early European

reports suggested that Fraser Island was heavily populated by Aboriginal people, but subsequent research indicates that there was a small permanent population of 400-600 that swelled seasonally to perhaps in the winter months when seafood resources were particularly abundant. Fraser Island contains many sites of archaeological, social and spiritual significance. Middens, artefact scatters, fish traps, scarred trees and campsites bear witness to the lives of the original inhabitants. European contact, initiated by Matthew Flinders in 1802, was sporadic and limited to explorers, escaped convicts and shipwreck survivors."

Excellent place to stay on Fraser Island

  • 5 of 5

Have just spent 6 nights at Sandjunes and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our first time to Fraser so Happy Valley was a good choice of place to base ourselves. Sandjunes was an extremely clean, well equipped little house and dealing with Bree was easy from start to finish. Beds were comfortable, all appliances worked, the kitchen was well equipped with good quality cookware and we had no issues with anything including hot water for showers. Nice big fridge, and an extra chest freezer was handy. Very quiet area and only a 5 minute walk to the pub for meals, which was excellent (we went twice for dinner). We also rented Dingo's Den and our group of 6 enjoyed being so close to each other. Would highly recommend staying here, and would do so again when we return to Fraser Island.

Central to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sandjunes. Centrally located and easy to get to all parts of the island from Happy Valley. Nice relaxing house to stay in, bright and airy with a great view of the ocean from the deck. Great place to have your morning coffee. Bree was very helpfull with her advice on what to do on the island. Will stay again for sure.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Sandjunes was am excellent choice to stay while visiting Fraser Island, it was a home away from home great view of the beach from the verandah and plenty of room inside. Sandjunes was clean and comfortable with everything you need. Bree is lovely and ensures you are comfortable throughout your stay. I will definitely be back on our next visit. Located at Happy Valley it is in a prime position with the shop, bar and restaurant only meters away.

Lovely individual home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 7 nights stay at Sandjunes. The spacious cabin style house with its warm timbers made us feel relaxed and at home. We spend hours on the back of the wrap around verandah admiring the beautiful view to the sea with indeginous trees and palm suroundings. We appreciated plenty of high quality cooking gear and crockery as well as full sized oven large fridge and freezer as we enjoy cooking by ourselves

(and of course eating at the large sturdy table!). We also enjoyed a couple of BBQ provided on the verandah. We slept well on the compfy bed too. The house was very clean and Bree was was welcoming and helpful in every aspect. All in all an enjoyable memorable stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandjunes! The balcony has a lovely view overlooking Happy Valley and the layout of the house allows a nice breeze to flow through.

The property was kept immaculate and was perfect for our group of friends to enjoy our time at Fraser.

Perfect for a place to stay to enjoy what Fraser has to offer.
