K'GARI, FRASER ISLAND


DISCOVER A

unesco world heritage

WHY K'GARI, FRASER ISLAND? The traditional owners of the land, the Butchulla people, named the island K’gari, which translate to paradise, and the diverse range of breath-taking scenery and landscapes certainly feel that way when you arrive. Fraser Island is an untapped, conference and incentive destination unlike any other. Here, you'll find pristine rainforest surrounding freshwater lakes, vast sand dunes, beaches and sunsets that stretch for miles. Dingoes and an array of other wildlife also call this slice of heaven home.
