Burrum Coast Discovery Trail

Multiple Locations

To discover some of the most peaceful and picturesque seaside villages the Fraser Coast has to offer, set off on the Burrum Coast Discovery Trail. It begins just a short drive from Hervey Bay, with the fishing hamlets of Toogoom and Burrum Heads. Here you'll be able to enjoy pristine beaches, cute cafes, nature walks and plenty of wildlife. There are a number of mangrove-lined rivers and creeks that are great places to go fishing, crabbing or kayaking.

Next stop on the trail is the historic township of Howard, 37 kilometres west of Hervey Bay - best known as the former home of Andrew Fisher, the first Labour Prime Minister of Australia. You can then head to the rural village of Torbanlea which has a proud history of more than 100 years of coal mining.

Toogoom to Burrum Heads

Return to the Burrum Heads Road to reach Burrum Heads.

This friendly fishing village is nestled in the mouth of the Burrum River, about 36 kilometres north of Hervey Bay. From the Esplanade you can look across to Hervey Bay and on most days see the top end of Fraser Island.

Take a stroll along the miles of soft, sandy beaches, collect fascinating shells, explore or fish rivers and creeks by boat or canoe or just sit and watch the pelicans and some of the other 90 species of birds that inhabit the area.

Covering 23,1000 hectares, Burrum Coast National Park has mangrove-lined riverbanks, wallum heath with spectacular wildflowers and tea tree-dominated swamps. The southern section of the park, the Burrum River Section, is located on both sides of the Burrum Heads Road, just before Burrum Heads township.
(The central section of Woodgate National Park can be reached from Woodgate Board, 38 kilometres from Childers).

Hervey Bay to Dundowran Beach

Departing from the Hervey Bay Visitor Information Centre turn left onto Pialba-Burrum Heads Road and follow the road until you get to the base of the hill. Turn right on to Ansons Road and follow the road to Dundowran Beach.

This quiet, dog friendly beach with gentle waves at high tide also offers a relaxing sandy haven out of the horizon at low tide. Off Sempfs Road you will find the Ted and Maud Montgomery Vine Forest Reserve - the last littoral vine forest remaining in Hervey Bay. Access the walking tracks at Cissus or Ebony Courts only.

Head up the road to Panorama Drive and discover the valuable self-sustaining ecosystem at the beautiful Arkarra Lagoons; a haven for turtles, eels fish, ducks, pelicans, waterbirds, insects and many more species. Have a drink or tee-off up the road at Craignish Gold and Country Club located on the left off the Pialba-Burrum Heads Road.
