Tiaro & Hinterland

The hidden gem of Tiaro and its surrounding hinterland includes ranges, quiet waterways, rock pools and back roads of sugarcane fields, creating a landscape of contrasts.

Fed by an intricate pattern of creeks and waterholes, the mighty Mary River dominates the Fraser Coast’s southern hinterland. The river, first used to open the country for sheep grazing, provides great opportunities for fishing, swimming, and birdwatching.

Often in quiet solitude, visitors have the option of fishing or paddling the river, hiking Mt Walsh near Biggenden, or walking the bush track to Utopia Rocks Pools west of Maryborough, feeding their hunger at historic country pubs, taking a step back in time at museums in Howard, Brooweena and Bauple and researching the regions’ ancient lungfish and bottom-breathing Mary River Turtle.
