Introducing Fraser Coast
The Fraser Coast is one of the few places you can experience three of the world’s most incredible natural experiences back to back, as well as enjoying a captivating mix of stunning beaches, historic streetscapes and hinterland adventures.
Stare into the eyes of massive humpback whales as mother and calf play in the calm waters around you. Be dwarfed by ancient, gravity defying trees growing out of only sand as you explore the freshwater lakes and coloured sand dunes of Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world.
Visit Lady Elliot Island, just a short plane ride from Hervey Bay to swim with manta rays and turtles. Snorkel in the southern most point of the Great Barrier Reef to discover a colourful and lively underwater world.
Walk the streets of Maryborough, one of Queensland’s oldest cities. Filled with a sometimes dark, but mostly colourful history, Maryborough’s past is full of tales of love and loss to be discovered on professional tours or self-guided walks and drives.
Hervey Bay is part of a coastline of sheltered waterways and stunning esplanades. This water lover’s paradise is perfect for swimming, fishing, water sports and beach activities, no matter what the season. Along the esplanade, alfresco cafes, restaurants, shops, parklands, picnic areas, playgrounds, piers and a vibrant marina – all with views of the Great Sandy Strait and Fraser Island.
