The Fraser coast region in the Wide Bay–Burnett region of Queensland offers an amazing diversity, from the stunning Fraser Island to Hervey Bay and the Great Barrier Reef are just some of the world-class attraction that attracts visitors to the region every year. When in Fraser coast one can experience the iconic Australian landscape, including the World Heritage listed natural wonder, amazing coastline, tranquil hinterland and the ancient rainforests. The region is located about 250 kilometres (160 mi) north of Brisbane and centred on the twin cities of Hervey Bay and Maryborough but also includes Fraser Island. It was in fact not until March 2008 when the City of Hervey Bay merged with the City of Maryborough, Shire of Woocoo and part of Tiaro to form the Fraser Coast Regional Council. But the name came into common use in the early 1990s from a combination of Fraser Island and Cooloola Coast. Whether you are after a calm holiday with sun and sea or a more active holiday the Fraser Coast offers the best of both worlds and when in Fraser coast there is no need to rush, the only pace required is laid-back and relaxed and just having fun.
The whole area is a playground for any visiting animal lover wishing to encounter the migrating whales at sea, the egg-laying and hatching of loggerhead turtles on lovely Mon Repos Beach and other abundant marine life. Why not travel back in time to visit the charming old Victorian town of Maryborough and the gold mining museum in Gympie that re-presents the time of its golden era, which had gold diggers flocking to the town and saved Queensland from bankruptcy. You will for sure find some favourite activities to do whether it is relaxing by the beautiful beaches or explore the amazing nature or why not get your adrenaline going? The region offers plenty of activities such as hang gliding from the Carlo Sand Blow, racing on the Hervey Bay Go-kart Track or jet skiing along the coast. Whatever you choose to do make sure to enjoy this stunning region.
The splendid climate is perfect for alfresco dining and Hervey Bay’s Esplanade and marina offer plenty of great dining experiences with views to the sea as do the towns all along the Fraser Coast. Maryborough also has some fine dining with plenty of good restaurants overlooking the Burnett River. You can find a wide range of international cuisines but seafood is, of course, the speciality here including the famous Hervey Bay scallops.
There are plenty of bars to visit on the Fraser Coast if you want to cap off the day with a night on the town. Below are a few recommended bars you can start the night with. The Fraser Coast does not swim in nightclubs but the warm weather turns the outdoor cafés and pubs into late night drinking and dancing spots. In Hervey Bay you can find these along the Esplanade and on the parallel-running Boat Habour Drive.
Torquay Road in Pialba hosts the bulk of Hervey Bay’s major shops, banks and a post office. Both sides of Boat Habour Drive are lined with stores and shops. There is also the Bay Central Shopping Centre containing a Franklin supermarket, Target as well as several smaller speciality shops. The Esplanade is lined with shops in between all the cafés, restaurants and accommodations.
