Here the dizzying swirls of colour, life and diversity both above and below the island, is unrivaled anywhere on the reef. It’s a Mecca for underwater life. Coral, fish, manta rays, whales and sharks all congregate here in spectacular abundance. Seabirds too thrive here on the abundant marine life on offer. Lady Elliot is the southern fortress of the entire reef system, the gateway to one of the great natural wonders of the world.

Fraser Island Sep 15, 2017 Just to the south of the Great Barrier Reef and the Tropic of Capricorn, Fraser Island lies like a sprawling lizard. Some 120 kilometers long and up to 25 kilometers wide, Fraser Island is now the largest sand island on Earth. Somehow on this nutrient poor bed of sand life has thrived. Dingoes patrol its forests in search of wallabies while white-bellied sea eagles scour the beaches from above. From the lakes to the forests and its crystal clear streams - Fraser Island is a unique mosaic of unlikely habitats that have earned it World Heritage Status.
