Burrum Coast and Great Sandy Strait

The sheltered waters of the Great Sandy Strait between Fraser Island and Hervey Bay, are a natural playground for humpback whales. On land, wildflowers and secluded beaches beckon from Burrum Coast National Park.


Fishing Haven 

Go fishing and hook mackerel straight off the beach at the southern mouth of the Burrum River or canoe through intricate channels and mangrove-lined rivers in search of mud crabs. Launch from Tiaro's Petrie Park into the Mary River to fish for bass, barramundi and catfish, or, reel in buckets full of fish from the sleepy shores of Boonooroo and Tuan.
