Tuan on Queensland’s Fraser Coast is a low-key holiday destination for people who love boating and fishing – but also boasts spectacular views across the water to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
Tuan is one of a collection of enchanting seaside hamlets which are dotted along the shoreline of the Great Sandy Strait, a stunning water passage located between the Fraser Coast mainland and Fraser Island.
Tuan has long maintained its ‘old fishing village’ character and with barbecue along the Esplanade and a great public boat ramp, it is the ideal place for people wanting the simple pleasures of fishing and relaxation.
From Tuan and its neighbouring villages, you can enjoy a host of nature-based experiences including wildflower displays in late winter and spring and spotting rare shorebirds from as far away as Siberia using the Strait for their summer feeding grounds.
Watch dolphins play off the beach or seeing dugong graze on seagrass in the Strait’s crystal clear waters. From Boonooroo sail, canoe or cruise the strait’s protected waterways which rival the beauty and diversity of the Whitsunday Passage.
Follow the Great Sandy Strait Discovery Drive to experience these coastal villages, surrounding national parks, coloured sands and sand blows, incredible birdlife, fishing and boating.
