Maaroom Picnic Ground

Maaroom, Great Sandy Strait, Fraser Coast Area

Maaroom is a small, friendly peaceful fishing village on the waterfront of the Great Sandy Strait looking over to World Heritage-listed 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, watch the children play on the playground, fish from the boat ramp or simply watch the procession of boats come and go. This is truly one of nature's treasurers away from the hustle and bustle of town living.

There are caravan parks and camping spots as well if you feel like spending a few nights.
