The Many Textures Of Fraser Island

As an designer/artist I’m often attracted to textures and things that other travellers may not notice. So when I visited Australia’s Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island located just off of the coast of eastern Queensland, I was overwhelmed by the amount of different textures that were present in this diverse natural landscape. Below are some of my favourite Fraser Island textures:

From the beaches, to the lakes, to the rainforests, it’s hard not be inspired when you visit Fraser Island. I will be posting more on Fraser Island in the coming weeks, so keep checking back!

  4. Nice! I like the Scribbly Moths. I love different textures as well. I’ve noticed these little crabs on the beaches of Taiwan that make different patterns with little clumps of sand they dig out. I wish I had taken a picture!
