Short drives from Hervey Bay are the picturesque villages of Burrum Heads and Toogoom where you can eat fresh local seafood in a cafe, stroll on the unspoiled beaches, or fish from the shore or a tinny.

The townships of Howard and Torbanlea are relics of the bygone coal mining era, filled with old fashioned country charm, historic homes, and a mining museum depicting the olden days.

The calm blue waters of this popular seaside village provide an excellent place to fish from the beach, a boat or from the foreshore. 

The Burrum River’s extensive sand flats, channels and mangrove-lined banks offer the angler great fishing, crabbing and prawning. It is one of Queensland’s best kept barramundi secrets. Along with hard-hitting mangrove jacks, barra can be located around the rock bars littering the lower tidal reaches.
