Fraser Island attained its World Heritage Listing in December 1992 in recognition of the island's exceptional sand dune systems, its rainforests on sand and its pristine freshwater lakes and is the tenth World Heritage listed site in Australia. It joins the ranks of the Great Barrier Reef, the Wet Tropics of Queensland, Uluru National Park (formerly Ayers Rock) and Lord Howe Island. The listing recognises Fraser Island's combination of environments as having outstanding universal value.
Fraser Island has emerged from a century of exploitation of its rich resources - timber, sand minerals and fish. Logging and sand mining have ceased after many years of campaigning by environmental groups. The challenge for the island in the future will be in managing the growth in tourism but the responsibility of protecting Fraser Island for future generations belongs to all visitors in respecting the island's environment. Travelling from Noosa, Fraser Island Discovery practices responsible eco tourism.
The unique qualities of Fraser Island make it a destination you must see!
