Spring is coming around and one holiday destination that you shouldn’t ignore is the world-famous Fraser Coast.
Adjacent to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island and hailed as the number-one whale watching location in Australia, the Fraser Coast is an unforgettable experience for both couples and families seeking their next escape, and with our affordable Hervey Bay resort accommodation on the waterfront, here are the top five things you can do on the Fraser Coast this spring!
Enjoy the View from Urangan Pier
Walk into the ocean on kilometre-long Urangan Pier, where spectacular ocean views stretch for miles with Fraser Island visible to the east. Stroll to the pier’s end and snap a picture, then see how many stingrays and dolphins you can spot dancing in the water. If you love to fish, Urangan Pier is also a local favourite for casting out a line.
Cool Off at WetSide Water Park
If you find yourself needing to cool down this spring, head to WetSide Water Park. This public water attraction offers slides, jets and shallow pools for all ages, complete with poolside seating areas for barbecues and picnics.
Dine Al Fresco in the Best Fraser Coast Restaurants
Spring calls for al fresco dining and, on the Fraser Coast, you’ll find the best restaurants on Charlton Esplanade. This long shorefront boasts a number of exciting cafés and restaurants to match all tastes - some offering sparkling ocean views to enjoy with your coffee or meal.
Discover Fraser Island
Just off the coast, Fraser Island is an unmissable experience rife with adventure, wildlife and unrivalled scenery. Take a day trip this spring to discover the island’s crystal-clear lakes, iconic shipwrecks and rocky pools, then finish off your visit with a four-wheel drive through the rainforest.
Witness the Migrating Humpback Whales
Whale watching season comes each spring to Hervey Bay, and there are numerous tours that guarantee direct sightings of the migrating humpbacks. Set sail on a boat and have your breath taken away as you witness the world’s most majestic creatures firsthand.
