MYTH BUSTED!
Fraser Island is the world's largest sand island... but, with the help of our special Guest Presenter, Dr Errol Stock, we're BUSTING the rumour that it has more sand than the Sahara desert.

For thirty years, Geomorphologist, Dr Stock, has been attached to Griffith University where he has taught earth sciences. He has travelled on projects across the globe, but Fraser Island's ever-changing sandscapes, which are sculptured over time by wind and tides, hold a special fascination.

Kingfisher Bay's Ranger team are proud to welcome Errol back to Fraser island as we explore the island's sand frontiers... and uncover some hidden secrets along the way.
