The largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island is made up of sand that has accumulated over a time of over 750,000 years on volcanic bedrock which acted as the foundation and catchment for the sand. Naturally occurring mycorrhizal fungi present in the sand, release nutrients in a form that can be absorbed by the plants, which allowed plant life to thrive on the island in otherwise inhospitable and unfertile conditions.
There is a delicate ecological balance that exists here and to protect the island from harm, Fraser Island was declared a World Heritage site in 1992.
