There’s so much to discover in Fraser Coast
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.

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!
