Fraser Coast

From whale watching at Hervey Bay to peeling back the layers of Queensland's rich history and country charms at Maryborough, The Fraser Coast Region is one of Australia's premier nature destinations and is also the gateway to the world largest sand island, Fraser Island. Home also to the ecologically rich natural marine habitat of the Great Sandy Straits Marine Park, this region has forged its reputation through its synergy with the sea, and visitors will be spoilt for choice when it comes to fishing, diving, boating and sailing. Featuring the meeting of two World Heritage listed areas of Fraser Island and the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef the region is blessed with long sandy swimming beaches, sheltered harbors, island retreats, unique marine life and pristine national parks.

Bordered by 40 kilometres of stunning coastline, Hervey Bay offers access to Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, and Lady Elliot Island the most southern coral cay of the Great Barrier Reef. Hervey Bay Australia is also the best destination to experience whale watching season.
