TV VET Chris Brown's Fraser Island travel photography segment will screen nationally on Friday night on Channel 10's The Living Room at 7.30pm.

The TV personality and his crew toured the island in March, visiting the likes of 75-Mile Beach, Lake Wabby and Pile Valley, and the segment is due to air on Friday.

Kingfisher Bay Resort group communications manager Jodi Clark said next week the resort would host a 10-member crew from China's Beijing TV, whose shows reached a staggering 800 million people.

She said currently a National Geographic crew was on the island filming a shifting sands documentary on both Fraser and Lady Elliot islands. 

Ms Clark said their whirlwind visit coincided with a series of school holiday guest presentations at Kingfisher Bay Resort with Griffith University geomorphologist Errol Stock.

Also, six journalists from Hong Kong and China media outlets including China's Southern Metropolis Daily had been staying at the resort and taking in the sights on a beauty spots tour.

She said Kingfisher Bay Resort was also hosting media from Taiwan's Discovery Channel.

And to round it off, Eurong Beach Resort had hosted journalists from travel website What's Up Down Under on a two-day tour.

"Fraser Island, by its very nature, attracts visitors from all over the world and we are working very hard on fresh story angles and ideas which showcase our wonderful island backyard in full glory on the world's stage," Ms Clark said.
