The tiny inlet of Maaroom in Queensland’s Fraser Coast region is nestled along the spectacular shoreline of the Great Sandy Strait – with stunning views across to the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island.
This tranquil seaside hideaway, just twenty kilometres south of Maryborough along the Cooloola Coast Road, has a caravan park and an all-weather boat ramp with tidal access for fishing.
Down at the water’s edge is a pleasant spot to have a picnic with sheltered gazebo and playground.
Maaroom is part of a collection of quaint fishing villages dotted along the water’s edge of the Great Sandy Strait – the waterway between Fraser Island and the Fraser Coast Mainland.
Let the pace wind back several notches by following the Great Sandy Strait Discovery Drive to these villages and surrounding national parks to discover coloured sands and sand blows, incredible birdlife, fishing and boating.
