[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fraser Island is known as the largest sand island of the world. In fact you can hardly find rocks and the sand dunes move - driven by the wind - from east to west. The interior of FRaser island bears subtropical rainforsts, freshwater creeks and lakes - and forests of mighty pine trees up to 80 m high. These trees grow there since many thousands of years and the drifting sand shifts dunes higher than 60 meters across the whole island. Trees and forests are covered by sand and turn to stone during the milleniums. In the eastern areas of Fraser Island wind also unveals parts of trees and forests that layed thousands of years under tons and tons of sand.
This picture shows parts of prehistoric pine trees close to 75 mile beach.
