Fraser Island Travel Guide
Some 200 km (125 mi) north of Brisbane, Fraser Island, at 1,014 square km (391 square mi), is the largest of Queensland's islands and the most unusual. Originally known as K'gari to the local Butchulla Aboriginal people, the island was later named after Eliza Fraser, who in 1836 was shipwrecked here and lived with local Aborigines for several weeks.
