The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service says a massive job is underway to restore Fraser Island, off the state's south-east, after the recent floods.
Hundreds of tourists were evacuated at the height of the wild weather and an 18-kilometre stretch of Sandy Hook Road was extensively damaged.
Area manager Ross Belcher says diversions will be in place so the road can be fixed.
"This area is close to a bit of a low-lying swamp area and it got a bit of flooding and rain from the swamp," he said.
"We'll be carting clean gravel onto Fraser Island and making that section of the inland track much more trafficable.
"I'm sure the commercial tour operators and other people are going to be quite happy about that."
