Experience the variety - from coal to coastal havens! Stretching from Toogoom and Torbanlea to Burrum Heads and Howard, the Burrum Coast takes its name from the Burrum River, where coal was discovered in 1863.
The township of Toogoom, a short 17km drive along the coast from Hervey Bay, boasts incredible fishing and boating. It’s also a terrific place for an adventure, like riding the Toogoom Mountain Bike Trails and it has a great restaurant located right on the water. Many visit to just relax on the beach.
A further 18 km further along the coast is the fishing village of Burrum Heads, where the Burrum River meets the ocean. Here fishing boats pepper the sea, providing a beautiful backdrop for spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It is also worth keeping an eye out for the turtles and dugongs that make appearances in the area.
