The Fraser Island Association is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed in 1991 by a handful of passionate locals; one of which is still on the committee today. Committed to helping protect the interests of Residents, Rate Payers, Business Operators and regular visitors, the Fraser Island Association, has since continued to be dedicated to the protection and conservation of the fragile ecosystem that makes the World Heritage Listed Fraser Island so unique.

The Association seeks a balance between concern for the environment and the commercial and recreational use of the island. It is important to us that businesses thrive, residents are heard and visitors to the island are guided to be responsible tourists.

Our objectives are:

  • Protection of the rights of all businesses, residents and users of Fraser Island.

  • Management, protection, and conservation of the environment of Fraser Island for future generations.

  • Consultation with government and local authorities prior to any decisions relating to the future of Fraser Island.

  • And, representation on any administrative body established to manage Fraser Island.

The Fraser Island Association pursues its objectives through representation on these bodies and demonstrates a willingness to consult, negotiate and debate in a respectful and diplomatic manner. We act as a conduit, communicating with relevant stakeholders and liaising with managing agencies, including Queensland Parks and Wildlife, the Fraser Coast Regional Council, Queensland Transport, Emergency Services, and the community.
