Fraser Island | Queensland’s 5 World Heritage Sites



800,000 years in the making (which is still baby status when you’re a world heritage site), Fraser island is the largest sand island in the world – 122 km long. Not only that, but it’s got rainforest growing and thriving on sand! It’s got lots of other world-class facts about it too like it contains half of the world’s perched freshwater dune lakes and it has the largest unconfined aquifer on a sand island. While those tongue-twisters might impress a scientist, Fraser Island is pretty great for anyone because on the one island you can hike, swim in crystal blue freshwater lakes, visit a shipwreck, spot whales and dingos, 4×4, camp, salt-water fish, or go on a great walk. A few interesting facts about why Fraser Island is one of Queensland’s world heritage sites:

• There are over 325 species of birds on Fraser Island.
• You can see Australia’s purest population of dingos and a unique species of tortoise, which can be found in some of the freshwater lakes.
• Fraser Island has over 100 freshwater lakes within its 1,820 square kilometres.

In Australia many sheep and cattle farmers have working dogs. These guys have a natural instinct, enhanced through precise breeding and training to work with animals in a low-stress way. When farmers have to move their livestock, having dog can often make that task easier for both the farmer and the animals.

Pretty Shady: Farshun in the Sun



We reached out to a handful of our favourite Australian brands and hit the water on a rather inclement day – the exact type of day you wouldn’t expect to get sunburnt. TVG’s resident model Nick, along with Tom, donned a selection of looks, with pieces from Venroy, Mocha Salt, Barney Cools and OBLYK, before climbing aboard Hayden Shapes’ finest for a unique Summer photoshoot.

Why is young Australia still so terrible at sun care?
