The Fraser Coast – Fraser Island & The Great Sandy Strait
The Fraser Coast and Hervey Bay is our charter yacht playground. Easily accessible by road, train or plane, the Fraser Coast is located approximately 300 kilometres north of Brisbane and includes the townships of Bundaberg, 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 Fraser Escapes Bareboat Charters sailing holiday. The clear blue waters of the Fraser Coast are teeming with marine life, including dolphins, dugongs, turtles and manta rays. 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.
Indeed, it has been said that ‘if you are searching for one of the best destinations to experience the fun, the beauty and the magic of the ocean then you’ll find it at Hervey Bay’.
This stunning destination has something for everyone. Our pace is laid back and relaxed. Our landscape is rich with natural beauty, its palette a vibrant combination of azure blues, verdant greens, golden sandy beaches and rich red sunsets.
The Whitsundays may be a famous sailing destination, but for those in the know, sailing the waters off Hervey Bay, the Great Sandy Straits and Fraser Island offers a memorable holiday like no other. No matter what the weather is doing there is always somewhere to go.
