The Fraser Coast and Hervey Bay is our main sailing playground. The smooth and partially smooth waters of the Great Sandy Strait provide a safe haven for first timers, families and experienced yachtsman alike.
Easily accessible by road, train or plane, the Fraser Coast is located approximately 300 kilometres north of Brisbane and includes the townships of Hervey Bay and Maryborough, the adjacent coast to the landward side of Fraser Island and as far south as Tin Can Bay, as well as Fraser Island itself.
World famous for some of the most interactive natural experiences on earth, the Fraser Coast is truly where nature comes alive and the best place to experience it all is on the water, with a sailing holiday. The clear blue waters of Fraser Island are teeming with marine life, including Dolphins, Dugongs, Turtles, Manta Rays and Humpback Whales (July-Nov). So precious is this environment, that in 2009 UNESCO awarded the Great Sandy Region Biosphere Reserve Status, recognising it in the same class as the Galapagos Islands, Central Amazon, the Everglades and Uluru. In 2019 Hervey Bay became the World’s first Whale Heritage Site.
