Police caution visitors to Fraser Island to drive safely

FRASER Island police have issued a warning to visitors to obey the law during what will be a busy Easter period for the island.

Sgt Roger Williams from the Fraser Island station said visitors should obey rules and take care when travelling around the island.

"We'd like to remind the public that all road rules apply on the island and police will be out in force," he said.

Despite the great conditions police have reminded people to take care while four-wheel driving around the island. Motorists should drive on the harder sand between the waterline and the high tide mark for the firmest surface. Drivers should select low gears for soft, dry sand and avoid sharp turns and sudden braking.

To avoid becoming lost and damaging the environment use well-established tracks to reach the beach.
