The Great Barrier Reef is Australia's most famous iconic landscape but what the Great Barrier Reef is to the reefs of the world Fraser Island is to the sand masses, the granddaddy of them all. This massive sand island supports so many different diverse habitats. It's an adventurer's playground but it is also home to some of Australia’s last remaining wild dogs. The dingo is one of the world's oldest dogs and here on Fraser Island is one of the last pockets of pure dingoes left in Australia.
Geologists say Fraser Island has been around for 800,000 years and its dunes have the longest and most complete age sequence of coastal dunes anywhere in the world it has now also become a world heritage area but what does world heritage protecting do for the dingoes that are a crucial part of Australia’s ecology.
Lin joins with conservationist Bob Irwin to explore Fraser Island, visit a dingo sanctuary and spend time with the indigenous Aborigines who have been on Fraser Island for thousands of years who believe dingoes are a large part of their lives and should be respected for their place on Fraser Island.
This is a journey of adventure, beauty with a little heartache for the dingo “an Aussie icon” who is struggling with the influx of tourism.
