Seventy-Five Mile Beach, Fraser Island

(4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
The name says it all at Seventy-Five Mile Beach, where the golden sand stretches for miles along the coast. The beach is wide enough for small charter planes to land and for four-wheel drive vehicles to approach the edge of the water. SUVs, cars, and motorbikes drive along this sandy strip dodging the tides and skidding along the top of the fresh, wet sand. Keep your eyes open for wildlife along the shores: You may see mutton birds or a fox nipping at fish who've gotten too close to the shore.
