Great Sandy Strait

Welcome to calm, clear turquoise waters and a boat-lovers dream on the Great Sandy Strait. Belonging to the UNESCO Great Sandy Biosphere, these waters are sheltered by Fraser Island and Hervey Bay, and rival the Whitsundays for unique sailing conditions and stunning scenery.

Whales aren't the only incredible marinelife you'll find around here. On any given day you can come across dugongs, turtles and rare Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins. Make sure you grab the boat because you can sail this marine sanctuary and explore the remote western side of Fraser Island, explore many fishing hot spots or explore Woody Island, home to a number of heritage-listed lighthouses.

Don't forget! When exploring this marine mecca, a stopove at Pelican Bank is a highlight.
