The History of Fraser Island
Queensland’s largest island, Fraser Island was once a massive logging settlement. Logging began in the 1860s and continued until 1991 when environmental concerns ended the trade. In the 1950s, sand mining began. The island is rich in deposits of zircon, monazite, rutile, and ilmenite, but mining ceased when all leases ceased. One of the major landmarks that you can visit while touring the island is the S.S. Maheno. The Scottish ocean liner shipwrecked on the east coast of Fraser Island in 1935. The remains are still there today. Today, tourism is the biggest industry and to see what the island has to offer you can hire a car and explore.
