About Seventy-five Mile Beach, Fraser Island
Well, everything you need to know is in the uncomplicated name. It’s a beach. It’s 75 kilometres long. It’s beautiful, especially on balmy days when you can walk and walk and walk and never reach anywhere. There’s a lot to see though – ancient dunes in many colors, little streams bubbling their way to the ocean, tropical wildlife, an immeasurable number of birds. You’ll also spot:
- The Maheno Shipwreck.
- The champagne pools, where the swimming is excellent.
- The Indian Head, which is a formation of volcanic rocks at the southern end of the beach. It’s very popular with photographers. It’s also a great place for spotting marine life (sharks, rays, turtles and dolphins, Humpback whales).
The beach is mainly a long walking driving track.
