Fraser IslandRenee will arrange for a private tour of the Australia Zoo on your way north from Brisbane to Fraser Island. While the Australia Zoo offers the opportunity to view some of the country’s famous crocodiles, from a safe distance, the wildlife of Fraser Island is less intimidating. Dugongs, turtles, and thousands of shorebirds are among the residents of the world’s largest sand island. Its diverse fauna has helped earn it a place on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites alongside Kakadu National Park and the Great Barrier Reef. The Kingfisher Resort, your home on Fraser Island, is designed to blend seamlessly with its setting, but you won’t have to give up any comforts at this property that’s been named the Best Beach Resort in Australia by the Discovery Channel.
