Fraser Coast | Things to do

Get ready for an adventure on the Fraser Coast. Swim alongside humpbacks in the whale-watching capital of the world, Hervey Bay, spot wild dingoes on the world’s largest sand island and buckle up for four-wheel driving along the beach.

Fraser Island

The world’s largest sand island is bursting with family-friendly activities. Swim in sparklingly clear freshwater lakes and creeks, like Lake McKenzie and Eli Creek, or go sand dune hiking around Lake Wabby. Go four-wheel driving through rugged bush tracks or along the beach, then pitch your tent and camp right on the sand. Swim in the fizzing waters of the Champagne rock pools, spot wild dingoes and inspect the rusting hulk of the 80-year-old Maheno shipwreck.

Whale watching

In Hervey Bay, you can cruise alongside migrating humpbacks as they make their way from Antarctica. Hear their clicks, whistles and pulsed calls with the help of special microphones and witness spectacular displays of breaching and tail flipping. For a truly unforgettable experience, find a tour where you can jump in the water and swim with them.

Start Exploring

Fishing

Track trevally in the flats of the Sandy Straits, fish on artificial reefs created by shipwrecks or tackle the open ocean with a deep-sea fishing charter. Show me more fishing options.

History

Step back in time and into the birthplace of a literary classic. Maryborough dates back to the mid-1800s and was the birthplace of P.L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins. The town hosts an annual festival dedicated to the beloved nanny each June/July.
