Welcome to the Fraser Coast

About the Fraser Coast

The Fraser Coast region is known as the whale-watching capital of the world, with thousands of humpbacks migrating past each year. It is also known as one of Australia’s top fishing destinations.

The town of Hervey Bay is a bustling holiday hub known for its family-friendly beaches. Stroll through the heritage-rich streets of Maryborough to uncover some of the fascinating stories, including the birthplace of Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers and the distinguished military history which shaped one of Queensland’s oldest cities. Just offshore, you’ll find the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island, a place of sparkling lakes and 4WD adventure.
