The Fraser Coast is dominated by Fraser Island. This magnificent region is the largest sand island in the world and tours are available from both Hervey Bay and Rainbow Beach. You can take a day tour, spend a few days at one of the local resorts or take an extended two or three day tour. Camping is also allowed on Fraser Island however you will need a four wheel drive vehicle as there are no made roads on the island. The Island can be accessed via a vehicular barge from either the northern end or the southern end. Rainbow Beach is the main town at the islands southern end and this is a great tourist town in its own right. Activities here include surfing, fishing, golf and horse riding.
