WORLD HERITAGE

K'gari/Fraser Island

Inscribed 1992

"Stretching over 120 kilometres along the southern coast of Queensland, K'gari (184 000 hectares) is the largest sand island in the world. It was inscribed on the World Heritage List in recognition of its outstanding natural universal values:

as an outstanding example representing significant ongoing ecological and biological processes; and as an example of superlative natural phenomena.

The island is a place of exceptional beauty, with its long uninterrupted white beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, its majestic tall rainforests and numerous freshwater lakes of crystal clear waters.

The massive sand deposits that make up the island are a continuous record of climatic and sea level changes over the past 700 000 years.

K'gari features complex dune systems that are still evolving, and an array of dune lakes that is exceptional in its number, diversity and age.

The highest dunes on the island reach up to 240 metres above sea level. Forty perched dune lakes, half the number of such lakes in the world, can be found on the island. These lakes are formed when organic matter, such as leaves, bark and dead plants, gradually build up and harden in depressions created by the wind.

The island also has several barrage lakes, formed when moving sand dunes block a watercourse, and 'window' lakes, formed when a depression exposes part of the regional water table.

A surprising variety of vegetation types grow on the island, ranging from coastal heath to subtropical rainforests. It is the only place in the world where tall rainforests are found growing on sand dunes at elevations of over 200 metres.

The low 'wallum' heaths on the island are of particular evolutionary and ecological significance, providing magnificent wildflower displays in spring and summer.

Birds are the most abundant form of animal life on the island with over 350 species being recorded. It is a particularly important site for migratory wading birds which use the area as a resting place during their long flights between southern Australia and their breeding grounds in Siberia.

A species of particular interest is the endangered ground parrot, which is found in the wallum heathlands.

Few mammal species are present on the island. The most common are bats, particularly flying foxes. The dingo population on the island is regarded as the most pure strain of dingoes remaining in eastern Australia.

The lakes on K'gari are poor habitats for fish and other aquatic species because of the purity, acidity and low nutrient levels of the water. Some frog species are adapted to survive in this difficult environment. Appropriately called 'acid frogs', they tolerate the acidic condition characteristic of the K'gari lakes and swamps

Called K'gari by its Aboriginal inhabitants, the island reveals Aboriginal
occupation of at least 5 000 years, although it is possible that further
archaeological work may indicate earlier occupation. Early European
reports suggested that Fraser Island was heavily populated by Aboriginal people, but subsequent research indicates that there was a small permanent population of 400-600 that swelled seasonally to perhaps in the winter months when seafood resources were particularly abundant. K'gari contains many sites of archaeological, social and spiritual significance. Middens, artefact scatters, fish traps, scarred trees and campsites bear witness to the lives of the original inhabitants. European contact, initiated by Matthew Flinders in 1802, was sporadic and limited to explorers, escaped convicts and shipwreck survivors."

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Make sure you read the terms and conditions to avoid little surprises, like no toilet paper, cold showers and no onsite parking.You may have to wait longer then 2pm to check in, and the fridge and freezer is shared with the property manager.I'd say basic is an understatement for the price.
Stayed 4 nights in Mar 2021

5/5 Excellent

Nice clean house with a great view
Perfect place to relax after a big day exploring the island. Great view of the ocean. Facilities of the house are adequate and everything works. Bree was very pleasant and easy to deal with. Our stay for the week was hassle free

5/5 Excellent

Sand Dunes
The property has the best view out of all the houses in Happy Valley. Being up high allowed for cool breezes to flow through the house. Very comfortable Great offer when compared to pricing.

1/5 Terrible

Not great
Most the reviews say basic accommodation. I would say below basic , no fans at all and not much of a breeze made for sleepless nights. No toaster had to light a gas grill which was also broken. Just some of the issues. Not a particularly nice property to stay in. There is definitely better places within happy valley.

4/5 Good
