Fraser Island invites people to celebrate its World Heritage Listing anniversary


Fraser Island is going to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its World Heritage Listing tomorrow, December 7. The Fraser Coast Tourism and Events invites everyone to visit the island and explore its exclusive features.

Located off Australia’s eastern Queensland coast, Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. It was included in the list of World Heritage sites in 1992. It is famous as an ecotourism destination. It also has nice camping sites with beaches and swimming points at several freshwater pools.

Bradley Nardi, the Marketing and Communications Manager of Fraser Coast Tourism and Events, said that they would like people from around the world visit the island and see its exceptional beauty by themselves. Apart from being a giant sandmass, the island also has freshwater lakes, age-old dune systems, rainforests, and coloured sand cliffs.

The tourist department has released a video on this occasion. Enjoy!

The island was the habitat of the indigenous Butchulla people for minimum 5,000 years. The Federal Court of Australia recognised their non-exclusive rights on the land and water on November 7, 2014.
