As the largest sand island in the world with a veritable mosaic of landscapes including endless beaches, tall rainforests, sand blows and dune lakes, the World Heritage Listed site of K’gari (Fraser Island) packs every kind of adventurers’ punch.

The other-worldly, azure beauty of Lake McKenzie is perhaps the most Instagrammed lake in Australia. The dramatic change between pockets of the rainforest with crystal clear streams to eucalypt forests and scrubby woodlands, all within a few hundred metres, is almost inconceivable. The sheer volume of water cascading out of the pristine and freshwater Eli Creek straight across the sand and out to the ocean will delight you.

Just an hour’s trip (tide dependent) along the Great Ocean Drive through the Great Sandy National Park and its beautifully coloured beaches of Teewah and Double Island Point, K’gari is accessible as a day trip with The Booking Box.
