The ‘Snap Up Some Paradise’ photo competition celebrates the 25th anniversary of Fraser Island’s (K’gari) inscription on the World Heritage List.

The island is known as ‘K’gari’ by the Traditional Owners, the Butchulla people, which means ‘paradise’. Today, the Butchulla people continue to use their knowledge of K’gari to make invaluable contributions to protecting the island’s environmental and cultural features.

Visitors to K’gari are reminded that one of the most important Butchulla Lores is ‘do not take or touch anything that is not yours’, and to respect ‘wanya nyin yangu, wanai djinang djaa’ where ever you go, leave only footprints.

For more info, please check out the Department of the Environment and Science website.  The competition runs until Sunday 5 August 2018.
