Just a short drive along the coast from Hervey Bay on Queensland’s Fraser Coast, you can discover the fishing village of Burrum Heads, where the Burrum River meets the ocean. Fishermen and boats line the crystal blue water – a perfect backdrop.
Burrum Heads is a small community with a pub, bowling club, caravan parks and a small precinct with several shops, cafes and supermarket. There is a new boat ramp with pontoon next to Lions Park with its picnic facilities and public toilets.
Make your way just south of Burrum Heads where you’ll find great swimming, fishing and camping spots on the Burrum River. Explore the Wongi Waterholes – a beautiful picnic and camping spot fringed by paperbark trees, or go fishing in local favourite Lake Lenthall.
