The Queensland Travel Guide acknowledges the Butchulla (Badtjala) people, and the Kabi Kabi (Gubbi Gubbi) people, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which the Fraser Coast is situated. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and recognise their continued spiritual and cultural connections to Country. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
Nestled just north of Queensland’s famous Sunshine Coast, you can visit Fraser Coast – a scenic region that boasts vibrant rainforests, sparkling bodies of water and World Heritage–listed Fraser Island, which occupies 123 kilometres along the southern coast of Queensland and is the largest sand island in the world.
Around 250 kilometres north of Brisbane, at the heart of the Fraser Coast, you’ll find the historic country town Maryborough – beloved for its striking art, statues, heritage buildings, memorials and museums – and the laid-back coastal community of Hervey Bay, which is widely known as a prime destination for whale-watching.
Across the waters of the Great Sandy Strait, you’ll be able to visit Fraser Island. Named K’gari by its Indigenous People, which means paradise – Fraser Island has long been known as one of Australia’s most breathtaking destinations, and rightly so. Featuring champagne pools, freshwater creeks and the world-famous 75-mile beach, Fraser Island is a true unspoilt oasis for anyone wanting to see Australia at its picture-perfect best.
