Great things to see & do

Fraser Coast is a popular playground for tourists all year round because of its mild climate, with K’gari (Fraser Island) just off the coast of Hervey Bay. Separating mainland from Fraser Island is the 70 kms of the Great Sandy Strait. It extends south to Inskip Point, with numerous named and unnamed islands.
The famous & historic Urangan Pier - it's one of the longest in Australia and in March 2017, Urangan pier saw its 100 years since first completed. It stretches for almost 1km into the ocean where you can stroll and spot marine and bird life or look back at 14 km of the Bay’s foreshore. It is a good platform for fishing in all  conditions. The Mary and Susan River enters the strait at River Heads and is also the barge landing access point to the Island. Set aside a day and join the
Spirit of Hervey Bay’s popular Mary River Cruise that twists & turns its way down the mighty Mary, right through to Maryborough township from Urangan Harbour. Whales can be encountered, (Jul - Oct) and the whale watching fleet also departs from the Urangan Boat Harbour, which is the location for some of the best holiday accommodation in the region such as Ramada, with either studio, 1 or 2 bedroom apartments. Whale cove offers a variety of modern, self-contained one & two bedroom apartments. You can dine at the Harbour, la carte, specialty coffee, quick meal or a decadent dessert overlooking the Hervey Bay marina, across the Strait to the Islands and much more at the Hervey Bay Boat Club. They also have Fraser Getaway cruise, a 3hr tour from Hervey Bay along the West coast of the Island.
