In front of the east coast of Queensland in Australia is the home of the island that is 120 km long, 24 km wide with 360 inhabitants, long referred to as a lost paradise and the largest sand island in the world. It is the one with the highest concentration of lakes in Australia after Tasmania; this is the Identity Card of Fraser Island which has been UNESCO-protected for 20 years.
It has a beautiful natural scenery, where it passes by high sand dunes, in rain forests, dotted with crystal lakes (over 100 lakes), whose waters are among the cleanest in the world. Among these, Lake McKenzie (see the last two pictures of the gallery), one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, covers an area of 150 hectares and is just over 5 feet deep and its beach is composed of silica, almost the pure state. Not to mention the gardens, plants and animals, including the Dingo. So, in many, if not heaven, you will be able to approach them.
The island is now a nature park, following a series of rules and restrictions, placed to protect its conservation. You can get there by ferry departing from River Heads, or by a charter aircraft that depart from Sunshine Coast Airport.
