Fraser Island is located in the state of Queensland, Australia. It was made a World Heritage site in 1992 and is actually the largest sand island in the world. Although it has incredible mangrove and eucalyptus forests and epic sand dunes, a lunar rainbow on its shores might be the rarest find of them all.

Also called a “moonbow”, lunar rainbows are incredibly rare and usually only occur when the moon is full and bright enough to create colors visible to the human eye.

    I’ve been here and it’s amazing. I broke one of those cars because I claimed I could drive stick, but I really couldn’t very well. It got stuck in second gear and the rest of the people with me were pissed! Afterward, sitting around a bonfire drinking Bundaberg rum and camping on the beach under the stars relaxed everyone into being very forgiving…

    Note to self. Don’t let Mary drive my car to Tahoe.
