Boonooroo

Boonooroo and neighbouring Tuan on Queensland's Fraser Coast are not your typical sleepy fishing hamlet - they also boast spectacular views across the Great Sandy Strait to Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island.

With a caravan park, bowls club, golf course, tennis court, and bike and boat hire, Boonooroo is the perfect place for a holiday filled with great fishing and relaxation.

Boonooroo is one of a handful of charming seaside hamlets doted along the spectacular shoreline of the Great Sandy Strait - a cluster of small islands and sand bars in the waterway between the Fraser Island, and the Fraser Coast mainland.

Follow the Great Sandy Strait Discovery Drive to experience these coastal villages, surrounding national parks, coloured sands and sand blows, incredible birdlife, fishing and boating.

From Boonooroo sail, canoe or cruise the strait's protected waterways which rival the beauty and diversity of the Whitsunday Passage.

At nearby Poona National Park discover wallum heath and a unique collection of Australian flora and fauna including tea trees, kangaroos, eucalypts, galahs, bottle brush and sea eagles.

The area is also the second largest protection area in Queensland for the dugong.
