Fraser Island (also known as K’gari) is the world’s biggest sand island & Queensland’s largest island located just off the coast of Hervey Bay. Known for its array of beautiful ecosystems, natural habitats & iconic coastal strip known as 75 Mile Beach, Fraser Island also is home to some of the most impressive sandblows that have developed over millions of years! Sandblows form when strong onshore winds break through the vegetation cover, driving sand from the eroding dunes & engulfing forests in their path at a rate of up to 1 metre per year!

On a stormy afternoon, we made our way up to the northern end of the island towards Indian Head where, if you look hard enough, you will find a monumental sand dune known as the Tukkee Sandblow. After hours wandering around this alternate landscape, we were headed back to the car when I found these incredible natural formations in the sand caused by wind & rain. The black lines that are visible seem to guide the sand into artistic formations & are attributed from remnants of iron ore minerals found in these sands. Sand mining was a lucrative industry in earlier times here on Fraser Island & with such vast amounts of mineral rich sands, it’s easy to see why.
