Fraser Coast

Whether you've got serious sea legs or prefer to keep your feet on dry sand, the Fraser Coast offers the best of both worlds. Reel in a fresh fish for dinner on Fraser Island, or head out on the water to watch whales play just off Hervey Bay

There's no need to rush, the only pace required is laid-back and relaxed. 

Island life

Whether you’re a rugged camping type or prefer barefoot luxury in a resort, a stint on World Heritage Listed Fraser Island will steal a piece of your heart.

  • Swim in crystal-clear Lake McKenzie surrounded by 1000-year-old native trees and the call of kookaburras.
  • Drive up the sandy highway of 75 Mile Beach and spot rare native dingoes.
  • Explore the bush heart of the island and stop for a selfie at the Maheno Wreck.

The whale watching capital

Nowhere else in the world can you have such close encounters of the humpback kind. You may have heard of whale watching, but here, the whales go people watching.

  • Hop aboard a whale watching tour during the season from July to November each year for guaranteed sightings of the gentle giants at play.
  • Learn how to speak whale (among other things) at the Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere and join in the annual Whale Festival.

Famous neighbours

From heritage houses to deserted beaches and fields of macadamia nut trees, the Fraser Coast has a few surprises over the back fence. 

  • Celebrate Mary Poppins’ author P.L. Travers in her hometown of Maryborough every year when the Mary Poppins Festival rolls (or should that be flies?) into town.
  • Hand feed wild dolphins in Tin Can Bay.
  • See the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach on the Great Cooloola Walk.
  • Visit Lady Elliot Island and the start of the Great Barrier Reef, only a 40 minute scenic flight from Hervey Bay.
