White sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, ancient rainforest and freshwater lakes so pure it is better than a visit to a day spa. Are you ready to explore the wonderful west coast of Fraser Island?
Come set up camp at Discovery Parks – Fraser Street, Hervey Bay and we’ll get you exploring parts of the island only locals know about with help from our friends at Tasman Venture.
Kick off your Queensland holiday with one of the most intimate, unique & educational whale watching experiences with Tasman Venture as your tour guide. Their award-winning whale tours are not the only thing they are famous for, they also provide the only experience that allows you to explore the north western coastline of Fraser Island.
Robyn Burgess has been running Tasman Venture for 30 years and says she “loves sharing the Fraser Coast with our customers. We are very lucky to have paradise right here in our backyard”. So, leave the crowds behind and discover the hidden and remote parts of Fraser Island in a comfortable and relaxing way. From walking and climbing sand dunes to snorkelling, kayaking and tubing, there is no shortage of fun to be had! But hey, if relaxing in the 16km of pristine water is more your thing, go for it!From mid-July to mid-October, keep your eyes peeled for Humpback Whales as they show off in the crystal-clear waters. Of course, our friends at Tasman Venture can help you encounter the thrill of getting super up close and personal with these majestic creatures (just see below!).
Want more than just white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters? Here are Robyn’s other Must Do’s when visiting the Fraser Coast:
- Walk along the Esplanade
- Visit the Botanical Gardens
- Historical Walk Trail in Maryborough
Discover the Fraser Coast with a stay at one of two Discovery Park locations, both an ideal base for island day tripping.
