FRASER Island's Butchulla community and a boat named after Queensland's most famous whale have hosted a special ceremony protesting Japanese whaling and dolphin killing.

Migaloo 2 skipper Dean Jeffreys and a group of Fraser Coast Kgariwakkabirri dancers hosted the ceremony from the yacht on Sunday.

The event was part of an annual global protest that calls for action against the Japanese dolphin hunting season, which traditionally begins on September 1.

More than 15,000 people were registered to take part in similar ceremonies across the world.
