Fraser Island - Australia

Some weeks ago i've arranged a swap with Joanna from Poland. As i was looking for unesco cards, she offered 5 different one from 3 different countries. This one is from Fraser Island in Australia.

"Fraser Island, is an island located along the southern coast of Queensland, Australia, approximately 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Brisbane. Its length is about 120 kilometres (75 mi). It was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1992. The island is considered to be the largest sand island in the world at 1840 km². Its resident human population was 360 at the census of 2006, of whom 11 were Indigenous Australians." - in: wikipedia
On the card there's the Cathedral Beach, a 24 km's beach of high coloured sand cliffs, providing the best coloured sand formations on the east coast.
