The World Heritage listed island is the largest sand island in the world, 123km long and 22km wide. Named after Captain James Fraser, who was ship wrecked in 1836 at Swain’s Reef, north of Fraser Island. Captain James Cook first discovered the island in 1770 and thought it was a peninsula of the main land. The island is home to one of the most amazing rainforests in the world, it has evolved to grow in very low nutrient sand.
