world’s largest sand island
123 km long by 15 km wide. It was World Heritage Listed in 1992 after a bitter struggle between conservationists, sand mining and logging interests. It is composed almost entirely of vegetation covered sand, with over 40 freshwater lakes and dense rainforest. Our tours take you into the best areas of this environmentally sensitive region and discover its precious eco-systems, abundant wildlife and natural beauty.
Throughout the day you will touch on and appreciate nature’s magnificent paradox. Seemingly endless golden beaches encompass towering hardwood forests, barren heathland, pristine rainforests, huge creeping sandblow deserts, crystal clear freshwater lakes, gurgling blood red streams, prehistoric ferns, mosaic coloured sands.
