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.
