Experience unique encounters
on the Fraser Coast

There is something for everyone on the Fraser Coast.

Welcome to our backyard, Queensland’s Fraser Coast. It’s the home of World Heritage-listed natural gems, unique diving experiences, safe and secluded beaches, the number one place to watch humpback whales play and extensive military history. Whether you are looking to explore the world’s largest sand island, K’gari (Fraser Island), coral cay Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort, a relaxing beachside holiday with the kids or uncover the rich military past of Maryborough – the Fraser Coast has something for you.

Nature Experiences like none other on the Fraser Coast

Accredited in 2019 as the world’s first Whale Heritage Site, Hervey Bay is recognised as one of the best places on the planet to see humpback whales up close, with a fleet of specially designed vessels offering eco-certified, intimate encounters during the annual season between July and November. Each year, thousands of east coast humpbacks break their migration journey from the Antarctic to the northern tropics in the calm, shallow waters off Hervey Bay in the lee of Fraser Island to rest, play and socialise.

Fraser Island – Paradise as you have never seen it

Discover everything Fraser Island has to offer from your base at award winning Kingfisher Bay Resort. Nestled along the Western Bay of Fraser Island amidst natural surrounds, eco marine cruises, sunset sails and guided 4WD tours depart the resort daily (with whale watching August to October). Enjoy ranger guided activities and unique dining experiences, on a bucket list Queensland holiday that ticks all of the boxes.

Lady Elliot Island – The Great Barrier Reef 

Have you been dreaming of exploring the world’s largest coral reef? Just a 40-minute flight from Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast is Lady Elliot Island, the most southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef. Step from the sandy beach into an amazing underwater world filled with turtles, dolphins, manta ray and reef sharks with a 25m-plus visibility all year round.
