Tannum Sands

On a stunning part of the Gladstone Region Coastline, you will find the twin towns of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands.

Year round swimming due to pretty consistent temps make this a water-sports paradise with stand up paddle-boarding, jet-skis, wind surfers, paragliders and more dotting the shoreline.

The landscaped and lush green of the foreshore and esplanade makes this a very family friendly area with barbecues, playground and fitness station areas dotted along nearly 20 kilometres of Turtleway Bikeway connecting all the major facilities of both Boyne Island and Tannum Sands.

Excellent fishing is not too far away at the famed Lake Awoonga stocked with the elusive and big Barra and Mangrove Jack and access to offshore reefs is also near at hand.

Where the forest meets the sea, you can set up for a day under the shade of the trees dotted along the shore and make the most of the great South East in this gem only 20 minutes from Gladstone.
