Great Sandy is a coastal national park and suburb in Queensland, Australia. The park features untouched beaches, large sand dunes, heathlands, rainforests, swamps, creeks, freshwater lakes and mangrove forests. Great Sandy National Park is divided into two sections. The Cooloola section is situated on the coast between Noosa Heads in the south and Rainbow Beach in the north and covers 184,00 ha. The Fraser Island section encompasses almost all of the World's largest sand island, Fraser Island, situated north of Rainbow Beach, covering 56,000 ha.
The land within the park is classified by BirdLife International as the Cooloola and Fraser Coast Important Bird Area because it supports a large population of Black-breasted Button-quails as well as many Bush and Beach Stone-curlews, Green Catbirds, Regent Bowerbirds, Mangrove Honeyeaters and Pale-yellow Robins. Cooloola is also home to the Eastern Ground Parrot and has one of the last coastal populations of the Emu. The Cooloola section contains the Cooloola Great Walk, a five-day hiking trail. Boat tours and canoeing along the Noosa River are popular visitor activities. On Fraser Island is the 90 km long Fraser Island Great Walk.
