Description: The largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island, reaching a length of 122 km, sits just off the eastern coast of Australia. Inland from the beach Fraser Island features tall sand-growing rainforests as well as freshwater dune lakes, which make up half of the world's known sources. This exceptional site has a myriad of shifting sand dunes, tropical rainforest and lakes. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
