Why You Should Visit Fraser Island

Fraser Island Tours


As the largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island is home to some spectacular landscapes and an incredible range of views that are both surreal and incredibly beautiful. A Fraser Island tour will take you to all the best spots, but if you need a push in the right direction, here’s why you should definitely visit.

1. Drive a 4WD

Exploring Fraser Island by 4WD is one of the best ways to see everything it has to offer. Because it is predominantly made up of sand, there are numerous sand dunes to ride over which provide a good old adrenalin rush. The island itself is renowned for its sprawling pristine beaches, its ancient rainforests, and lakes, and all of these can easily be discovered with the help of a 4WD.

2. Enjoy the Natural Ocean Jacuzzi

Fancy something a little more laidback? The island’s Champagne Pools are the place to go. These rock pools are formed by sea water crashing against a series of pocked rocks, making the perfect place for a quick dip.

3. Explore Crystal Clear Lakes

Perhaps the biggest draw of Fraser Island is its collection of impossibly clear lakes. Lake McKenzie, the most popular, is a perched lake set at the top of a sand dune — kind of like an oasis. The sand at the lake is made of pure white silica, providing health benefits for the skin and body, while the fresh water means there is no marine life here.

Elsewhere, Eli Creek provides a backdrop of incredible beauty. This is the largest freshwater creek on the east of Fraser Island, and it boasts impossibly blue and green waters that are ideal for swimming in. The flanking plant life almost gives it a tropical jungle feel, while the white sands are perfect for kicking back and relaxing on after a dip.

4. Spot the Wildlife

As well as lakes and natural water spots, Fraser Island is also renowned for its eclectic selection of wildlife. In fact, it is famed for its pack of dingoes that roam the island. In the cooler months, keep your eyes peeled for migrating humpback whales and a dolphin or two, as well. In total, there are over 350 different bird species, 50 mammals, and 80 reptiles that call the sands, rainforests and waters of Fraser Island home.

Fraser Island has so much to offer visitors, whether you’re looking for some fast-paced adventures or simply want to check out some of Australia’s mesmerising wildlife.

Things to Do in Mt Buller

Mt Buller Day Trip from Melbourne


Mount Buller is one of Victoria’s most spectacular winter destinations. Its snowy peaks promise a selection of different ski slopes, pretty villages, and a whole host of fun ways to pass the time. Set in the middle of the stunning Shire of Mansfield, the alpine region really comes to life during the winter months, offering visitors lots of skiing experiences and other adventures to do on a Mount Buller tour.

Here’s how to enjoy your time there.


1. Eat Good Food


Mount Buller may well be a mountain set in the countryside of Victoria, but it still boasts a hearty collection of restaurants that serve every cuisine from doorstop burgers to local Australian fare and Asian delights. Many of the restaurants also boast incredible views across the mountainous landscape so you can enjoy the sights while tucking into your food.

2. Learn About the Local History


Despite its reputation as a winter destination, Mount Buller also has a rich heritage that dates back many years. There are plenty of tours you can take while in the area to learn about its past.

3. Find the Art (and the Gnomes)


As you’re exploring the region, keep your eyes peeled for the smattering of sculptures that are dotted around the mountain. Perhaps one of the quirkier aspects of Mount Buller is the collection of gnomes that are tucked away around the area looking out over the surrounding scenery. They provide a trail for visitors to follow that lead to a Gnome Home that’s set inside an impressive Mountain Ash tree.

4. Ski and Snowboard


In the winter months, visitors flock to Mount Buller for its selection of snow-based adventures. There is a range of different level slopes, from gentle and easy to an adrenalin-pumping black diamond chute. This is a great way to explore the mountain from a unique and fun perspective.

5. Snowshoeing


For something a little more relaxed than skiing or snowboarding, try snowshoeing. This unique way to get around provides a magical and laidback way to learn more about the landscape and its fascinating history.

6. Watch a Film


Going to the cinema halfway up a mountain might seem like an odd choice of activity, but Mount Buller is in fact home to Australia’s highest cinema. So when you’re all snowed out, why not warm up and check out a film?

Mount Buller really is a magical place to explore. And, with so much to see and do, there’s a little something for everyone in this alpine landscape.
