Fraser Island Attractions
The island is positioned nicely on the southern end of Queensland, Australia. And unlike most sand dunes, there is an overflow of plant life, some growing at elevations over 200 meters. On this island you’ll find several scarce or endangered species such as ant-blue butterflies and dugongs. Driving here requires an access permit, so if you’d prefer to let someone else do the driving, there are day tours and 2-day tours available, and the tours will guide you to many sites, including Lake McKenzie.
