It's often easy to overlook the gems right on our doorstep.
For those of us who live in Brisbane or nearby, there's so much to choose from that you forget there are amazing destinations that attract visitors from the other side of the world.
One place I'm guilty of not paying enough attention to is Fraser Island, which is a World Heritage wonder and the biggest sand island on earth.
Visitors travel from all over the world to see Fraser Island's beautiful beaches, sand dunes and cliffs. During whale-watching season, Fraser Island and nearby Hervey Bay are the places to be.
