Seeking sanctuary? Discovery Parks - Tannum Sands, with its quiet bushland setting next to Tannum Beach, will have you refreshed and recharged in no time.

Our holiday park is within walking distance of picturesque Tannum Sands and Boyne Island, on Millennium Esplanade. The waters at Tannum Beach are so mild; you can take a dip virtually any time of year. Take a boat trip out to Wild Cattle Island, a habitat of endangered birds and turtles. Boyne Island, surrounded by the Boyne River, is perfect for fishing and water skiing. If you’d rather stay on dry land, Turtle Way is a 15 kilometre riverfront walking track.

Things to See & Do

The seaside communities of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands offer a relaxed coastal lifestyle centred on the outdoors and maritime pursuits.

The innovative and eco-friendly Millennium Esplanade, connects our caravan park to the beach and is an ideal place for picnics, barbeques and of course swimming. The waters are patrolled by lifesavers during Spring and Summer, providing a safe way to cool off. With only a small variation in water temperature during the year, you can take a dip virtually all year round.

Just south of Millennium Esplanade is Wild Cattle Island, an untouched national park separated by Wild Cattle Creek and a great destination for a day trip.  Visitors can access the island by boat across the creek. A boat ramp is located adjacent to the creek. 

Nearby Boyne Island is surrounded by the Boyne River, a popular fishing and water skiing location. The calm estuarine river winds its way through the township along Turtle Way, 15 kilometres of river front walking tracks. From Turtle Way head to Canoe Point and take a walk along the cliff top boardwalk and enjoy the magnificent sights. Have a stroll on the botanic walk behind the sand dunes.

The foreshore parklands along the Boyne River are the perfect vantage point to observe boats, outrigging crews and water skiers which epitomises the coastal community’s love for the outdoors.

Bray Park has plenty of facilities for adults and kids alike. A well equipped skate park is available for thrill seekers. A boat ramp and pontoon area is provided to launch your boat and take to the ocean or river for some serious fishing. Alternatively, throughout the Gladstone Region there are a number of boat ramps and spots where you are sure to bag a few fish.

Those looking for an activity away from the water will not be disappointed. The area’s sporting facilities include a disc golf course, indoor sports centre with rock climbing walls, lawn bowls green and rugby league, soccer, touch football and netball grounds.

Boyne Island and Tannum Sands are well-serviced. The area is complemented by three shopping centres, which include major chain outlets and speciality stores. The local cafes, pubs, sports clubs and casual restaurants will soothe any hunger pains. 

Located nearby is Lake Awoonga which is open for fishing all year round. Along with fishing, many activities can be enjoyed on or around Lake Awoonga. The calm waters of the lake are an ideal place to swim, sail, canoe or ski. The lake is surrounded by stunning, naturally sculpted landscapes teeming with a wondrous array of plants, animals and birds; making it a great place for bushwalking, bird watching and photography.
