Parc national de Great Sandy

Le parc national Great Sandy est un parc national côtier et englobe à la fois une partie du Queensland et de l'île Fraser, la plus grande île de sable du monde.

Sur le continent. la rivière s'étend de Rainbow Beach à Noosa Heads, sa frontière est une longue plage tropicale paradisiaque ininterrompue. Noosa Heads dans le sud est une destination de vacances populaire pour les Australiens et les hôtels sont occupés pendant la haute saison. À l'intérieur des terres, si vous recherchez des vacances plus axées sur la nature, le Cooloola Wilderness Trail offre des possibilités de véritable camping dans la brousse aux points d'eau de Neebs et de Wandi.

La section de l'île Fraser est séparée du continent par un récif de sable peu profond qui peut être traversé par barge. L'île possède une incroyable étendue de plage blanche qui s'étend ininterrompue le long de sa côte est tandis que l'intérieur abrite des forêts tropicales improbables, de sublimes lacs d'eau douce et des dunes remarquables.

The basics

Both sections of the park offer ways to explore in a number of unique ways. The Cooloola Section is home to ancient coastal cliffs and pristine forests. You can hike along coastal paths, canoe through the Noosa River, or drive a 4WD along the beach. The Fraser Island section is separated from the mainland by a shallow sand reef which can be crossed by barge. The island has an incredible stretch of white beach running unbroken down its eastern coast while the interior is home to rainforests, sublime freshwater lakes where you can swim, and remarkable sand dunes.

As Fraser Island has no sealed roads, part of the challenge (and fun) of visiting is driving on the sand. For this reason, many visitors opt for an organized tour from the mainland.

When to get there

You can visit all year-round but, to avoid the biggest crowds and highest temperatures, spring (from September to November) and fall (March through May) are possibly the most comfortable seasons. Campgrounds typically fill up during school holidays.
