Being 123 klms. long, Fraser is the largest sand island in the world. Visitors to the area should pay a visit to The Historical Village and Museum for a really interesting couple of hours. Urangan has a couple of interesting attractions. Vic Heslop's Great White Shark Show is on The Esplanade, and Neptunes Reef World is close by. Well South of The Tropic of Capricorn the climate is ideal for family holidays all year round.
