In 2016, Pacific Aria (P&O Australia) was the first cruise ship to call on Fraser Island - followed by her fleetmate Pacific Eden. The island's location is along Queensland's southern coast- some 200 km (120 ml) north of Brisbane. This is a World Heritage-listed location and also the largest sand island in the world (length 120 km (75 ml), width 24 km (15 ml).
The Pacific Aria's scheduled visit to Fraser Island Queensland was on April 3, 2016 - part of a 4-day Brisbane round-trip itinerary. The Great Sandy Strait is a 70 km (~ 43 ml) sand passage estuary (tidal strait consisting of bays and sand flats) that separates mainland Queensland from Fraser Island. On April 3, at high tide Pacific Aria entered and navigated through the strait, assisted by an experienced local pilot (a former Captain). At about 7 am the ship anchored off the Kingfisher Bay Resort.
Among the special P&O Australia cruise excursion deals on Fraser Island is the Kingfisher Bay Resort, offering 4WD tours along the island's beaches and some 1500 km / 930 ml of tracks.
