Originally home to the Badtjala people for about 5,000 years, the island's Aboriginal name is K'gari (pronounced "gurri") and although the native population was relocated due to European settlement, there are still about 500 archaeological sites all over the island.
From driving up and down the beach as if it's a major highway to swimming in the crystal clear Lake Mackenzie, Fraser Island is a spot which illustrates the harmony of ecological beauty and adventure travel for which Australia is famous. With a strong push for eco-tourism, the Kingfisher Bay Resort offers plenty of activities to learn more about the environment and experience everything the island has to offer, including fishing, camping and trekking.
Wish you were here!
We traveled to Fraser Island as a guest of Kingfisher Bay Resort, but all of our opinions and photos are completely our own.
