About Burrum Coast Discovery Trail
To discover some of the most peaceful and picturesque seaside villages the Fraser Coast has to offer, set off on the Burrum Coast Discovery Trail. It begins just a short drive from Hervey Bay, with the fishing hamlets of Toogoom and Burrum Heads. Here you’ll be able to enjoy pristine beaches, cute cafes, nature walks and plenty of wildlife. There are a number of mangrove-lined rivers and creeks that are great places to go fishing, crabbing or kayaking.
Next stop on the trail is the historic township of Howard, 37 kilometres west of Hervey Bay – best known as the former home of Andrew Fisher, the first Labour Prime Minister of Australia. You can then head to the rural village of Torbanlea which has a proud history of more than 100 years of coal mining.
