Before heading off into the unknown why not read our guide on what creatures you should keep an eye out for when adventuring about?
Fraser Island is renowned for its Dingoes, known for being the purest dingos in Australia. There are around 25 to 30 families of Dingoes on the island, with each having up to 12 dingoes per pack. They are truly a sight to see, seen roaming about the sandy beaches and within the lush bushland of the island. However, safety precautions are needed for these animals, as they can be aggressive to tourists with food or young children.
The majestic Humpback Whales migrate to the warm waters of Australia to breed and birth their calves every year, swimming past shores of Fraser Island to rest along the way. Visitors can spot these incredible creatures roaming the sapphire waters from July to November, either choosing to see them from the coastal beaches or up closer in the local tourist boats.
The Bottlenose Dolphin are locals at Fraser Island, always seen roaming about the shallow waters of the beachfront. Another common dolphin species found here are the Humpback Dolphins, found at Tin Can Bay frolicking in the tidal creek areas. Visitors can even join in on the dolphin feeding available here, wading into the shallow water where the dolphins swim right up and say hello. This has been a long tradition for 30 years, starting when a dolphin nicknamed Scarry arrived in the bay, bringing along his pod.
