What do humpback whales, Mary Poppins and the world’s largest sand island all have in common? They all call the Fraser Coast home! Whether it’s nature-based activities, cultural experiences or family-friendly fun you’re chasing, look no further than a holiday to the Fraser Coast.

Hervey Bay, crowned the world’s first Whale Heritage Site in 2019 is where the whales play each July-November. It is also the gateway to K’gari (Fraser Island), just a short scenic plane trip away from coral cay Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort, plus Australia’s latest wreck dive, the Ex-HMAS Tobruk. Not to mention our family-friendly beaches, famous Hervey Bay Scallops and relaxed atmosphere to soak up some sunshine.

Looking for cultural experiences? Maryborough’s Military & Colonial Museum, ANZAC Memorial in Queens Park and the Mural Trail have you sorted. Explore the heritage-rich streets, fresh produce each Thursday at the Maryborough Markets and the birthplace of Mary Poppins at the Story Bank – all in one day!
