Very exciting news as we speak! Troy and Steve are taking pictures of Migaloo ( the only reported entirely white whale in the world) as he migrates north past fantastic Fraser Island. Stay tuned for pictures of this truly unique experience!
Today Wednesday 30/6/2010 Air Fraser Island pilot Tim spotted the first Humpback whales south of Roonies Point off the weatern side of Fraser Island. This is extremely early for these magnificent mammals for their southern leg of their migration to the South Pole. Hopefully this early arrival means an exciting long season for our hundreds of visitors to Hervey Bay to witness the marvel of Hervey Bay Whale watching! Air Fraser will be operating aerial spotting and flights later in July.
Tom, one of Air Fraser Island's prized pilots, this week took some lovely Sunshine Coast people out west to Birdsville, Lake Eyre, William Creek, The Dig Tree ( Burke and Wills final resting place) and Innaminka. This was a charter over 3 days and was enjoyed by ALL! Currently "Big Red" sand dune is "Big Green" after all the flood waters in the Diamontina and associated river systems. Lake Erye is filling up and expected to keep flooding in for months to come. Now is the time to see these once in a life time spectacles! Email or telephone Air Fraser Island now for more info !
On 25th May Air Fraser Island sighted their first magnificent Humpback Whale on their northerly migration from Antartic waters to the warmer ocean in the Whitsundays. From now throught till October/November these fantastic mammals can be seen off the eastern beach of Fraser Island travelling with in their pods and sometimes including their cute ( 5 metre long) calves!
In July this year the Queensland Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, Kate Jones, announced a dingo ‘census’ on Fraser Island so that her department could ‘further fine-tune management strategies for a sustainable dingo population, while ensuring public safety’.
