Coloured Sands on Fraser Island


One cannot write about Fraser Island and not mention the sand. To most people the Fraser Island is instantly associated with the 75km long, pristine beach on the Eastern side of the island. In fact lets not forget Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world. However, there is more to the sand than just the beach.

Erosion, and endless layers of varied coloured sand have created spectacular sand formations in many places along the beach. Best known of these are Pinnacles and Cathedrals. The Pinnacles, expose rich textures and shapes resulting from nature’s sculpting elements: wind and water and are truly one of Fraser Islands natural wonders. more
