Fraser Coast Amazing Fishing Trails

Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

Whether you are seeking the adrenalin rush of reeling in a marlin on a game fishing boat - or that relaxed feeling of having your line in the river as you drink a beer at sunset, the Fraser Coast is the ultimate fishing destination. There are several north facing beaches that are protected by prevailing winds between Burrum Heads to Poona where you can try your luck. Fraser Island is considered the holy grail of beach fishing and the island flats are popular with fly fishers. The deep gutters and channels of the Great Sandy Strait and the mangrove-lined creeks found throughout the region make the Fraser Coast a breeding ground for a vast array of fish species including coral trout, bream, whiting, flathead, mackerel, tailor and mangrove jack, along with sand and mud crabs. Another popular spot for fishing enthusiasts is Lenthalls Dam, stocked with bass, barramundi, yellow-belly and silver perch.

World Heritage Fraser Island

Recreational fishers describe the ocean side of Fraser Island as the 'holy grail' of beach fishing with catches of whiting, dart, golden trevally, flathead and jewfish and dozens more species. Particularly good sport are the huge schools of tailor that pass by on their annual migration north between July and October.

Fly fishers come from all over the world to cast on the flat, sandy shallows near the island for mild fish and the chance to snag the highly sought golden trevally. In the sheltered waters on the western side of the island the target fish are barramundi, garfish red emperor, mangrove jack, bream and sand whiting.

Marlin Fishing is becoming increasingly popular to the north of Fraser Island. They are plentiful, and are tagged and released for future sports fishermen to enjoy. Gradually many more international visitors are being attracted to these waters for big game fishing.

Access Permits must be attached to affixed to left hand side of windscreen.

For your safety please obey all road signs.

The Great Sandy Strait

The Great Sandy Strait is a 70 kilometre sand passage estuary situated between the mainland and Fraser Island and is part of the Great Sandy Marine Park. A complex landscape of mangroves, sandbanks, intertidal, sand mud islands, salt marshes and seagrass meadows, the Strait is an important habitat for breeding fish, crustaceans, dugongs, dolphins and marine turtles.

The Great Sandy Strait is a diverse mix of marine and coastal wetlands, crystal clear turquoise blue water, long stretches of white sandy beaches, native woodlands, dense rainforests and mangrove meccas. The Mary River enters the strait at River Heads.

Sail in idyllic conditions and enjoy stunning scenery; the sheltered bays, sand flats, beaches and mangrove lined creeks are perfect for all types of fishing. See more than 45,000 shorebirds from as far as Siberia as they use the strait as their summer breeding ground. Watch dolphins play off shore, dugong graze on the sea grass and turtles and stingrays glide in this declared sanctuary.

Teeming with schools of fish such as coral trout, sweet-lip, barramundi, mangrove jack, bream, whiting, and flathead - throw in a line, you wont be disappointed.

Hervey Bay Beach Fishing Experiences

Hervey Bay has long been known as one of the world's best destinations for fishing enthusiasts to come and enjoy clean, crystal waters to fish in. Hervey Bay is surrounded by many islands, including the closest island, Round Island. A short distance away is Woody Island and a little further, the magnificent Fraser Island, which shelters Hervey Bay waters from the Pacific Ocean swells. The climate is perfect for securing a decent catch of fish all year round so it is no wonder visitors flock here to recreational fish or join in the many fishing competitions which take place.

Put your boat in at Urangan Harbour and set out for the deep water to catch marlin and other large species, or cast a line from the sandy foreshore where you may score a feed of summer or winter whiting or flathead. The Urangan Pier is also a favourite fishing spot for young and old alike and is always buzzing with activity no matter the tide. You can also charter a fishing vessel and be taken directly to some of the best fishing spots around the place.

Gataker's Bay is also a popular fishing spot with boat ramp.

Maaroom, Boonaroo and Tuan Fishing Villages

Maaroom is a small, friendly, peaceful fishing village on the waterfront of the Great Sandy Straits with view to Fraser Island. Situated just 20 kilometres south of Maryborough, off the Cooloola Coast Highway and 50 kilometres from Hervey Bay. At the water's edge there is a pleasant spot to have a picnic which a sheltered gazebo and playground. There's an all weather boat ramp with tidal access for fishing.

Boonooroo is a typical sleepy little fishing hamlet, with a bowls club, golf course, tennis court, caravan park and bike and boat hire. This is a wallum swamp area, home to unique collection of Australian flora and fauna including tea trees, kangaroos, eucalypts, galahs, bottle brush and sea eagles. It is also the second largest protection area in Queensland for the dugong.

Tuan is a low-key tourism destination for people who love boating and fishing. The village of Tuan is close to Boonooroo and has maintained its old fishing village character. With barbecue facilities along the shoreline and a great public boat ramp, Tuan is the ideal place for people wanting to take pleasure in the Great Sandy Strait. This area is renowned for its wildflower displays and birdwatching.

Poona and Tinnanbar Fishing Hamlets

Poona is located 35 kilometres from Maryborough and is popular with holiday makers who enjoy peaceful surroundings, plenty of space and good fishing from boats or the beach. Poona offers a great place for children to play and swim safely, with dolphins playing just off the beach. When the tide goes out, explore the tidal pools pump for yabbies or chase soldier crabs.

Tinnanbar's white sandy beach and clear turquoise water make it one of the best along the Queensland coast, attracting sea turtles and dugongs. It is suitable for swimming and sailing at all tides. There are a number of nearby creeks and good access to offshore fishing grounds. There is a short cut to Tinnanbar through Bauple using the forestry road.

River Heads, Where the Rivers Meet

River Heads is a small town 18 kilometres south of the city of Hervey Bay. The town is built on a narrow peninsula surrounded by the Great Sandy Strait (to the east), the mouth of the Mary River (south) and the mouth of the Susan River (a tributary of the Mary) to the west.

Vehicular ferries link the mainland with Wanggoolba Creek and Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island.

Urangan Pier and Harbour Rock Wall

Urangan Pier is a historic pier in Urangan, Hervey Bay. It is a former deep water, cargo-handling facility originally built to facilitate the export of sugar timber and coal. The pier, serviced by the extension of the railway line from Pialba, was used for the transfer of cargo between rail and ships. It was built between 1913 and 1917, originally to a length of 1,107 metres. The pier was closed in 1985 and 239 metres was demolished, however due to public outcry, 868 metres of the pier was left and the land handed to the Hervey Bay City Council.

The pier is today an iconic fishing spot, where young and old congregate. It is a popular photography spot with magnificent sunsets and sunrises. The rock wall at Urangan Harbour and the groynes are extremely popular with local and visiting anglers. This is a relaxing spot to fish while watching the activities on the Great Sandy Straits Marina.

Nearby is a great beach for walking or fishing from. It is close to the Boat Club which provides entertainment and food. There is a kiosk and fuel on the marina. Close by is five star accommodation or caravan and camping parks.

Mary River Maryborough and Tiaro

The Mary River is a major river system in Queensland starting in the Sunshine Coast hinterland and emptying into the Great Sandy Strait near the town of River Heads, south of Hervey Bay. Famous for the Mary River Cod, a large fish which is critically endangered a along with other species such as the Mary River Turtle and the Queensland Lungfish. There are also many frog, butterfly and parrot species which are endangered.

Tiaro is a small town on the Mary River, situated on the Bruce Highway 27 kilometres south of Maryborough and 227 kilometres north of Brisbane and is a great stop off for visitors wishing to take a break as there is food, public amenities, pubs and history to absorb.

Fishing spots and boat ramps are plentiful along the Mary River. At Tiaro, on the northern outskirts, turn off to Petrie Park where you can camp overnight, fish or just simply picnic while enjoying the picturesque river views. Check the regulations for camping as there are restrictions and make sure you have the necessary permits.

The luxury bungalow tent island retreat of Svendsens Beach Great Keppel Island offers guests the perfect eco friendly island holiday with a 'glamping' experience. At their reasonable prices anyone can afford a week on the pristine side of Great Keppel Island. Walk the many bushwalks (up to five hour tracks), snorkel on their lovely coral reefs or just relax. They meet you at the island ferry and transport you over to share their small, friendly, ecologically gentle island way of life, where their power comes from wind generators and solar panels. Whales migrate past the island in Winter (July-September) and turtles nest in Summer (November-February). The accommodation is for adults only. Svendsens Beach can accommodate a maximum of 10 adults in the two luxury tent-bungalows, the newly appointed studio and the rental house. The tents and studio form one small cluster, where up to three couples can share, whereas the house is completely separate and self-contained.
