October 30, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

With the world’s largest sand island to explore, incredible encounters with wildlife, exciting eco-adventures, fascinating heritage and charming localities – Queensland’s Fraser Coast is guaranteeing a summer filled with nature, adventure, memories and bucket-list moments.

As part of a special “Guaranteed Summer” campaign, the Fraser Coast has a host of holiday deals on accommodation, Fraser Island tours, adventure cruises, fishing and dining and attractions.

World Heritage-listed Fraser Island’s towering ancient rainforests, fresh water lakes and sparkling creeks and spectacular sand formations make it unmatched anywhere in the world.

Stay on the island from just $85 a night at Eurong Beach Resort, or enjoy the eco-luxury of Kingfisher Bay Resort from $148 a room.

Island eco-adventure deals include cruises to discover the untouched beauty of the remote western side and guided tours taking in the island’s sparkling pure lakes, stunning 75 Mile beach highway, shipwreck and cliffs of coloured sand.

Few things compare with a breath-taking, close encounter with marine wildlife and it is possible to experience many fascinating creatures on the Fraser Coast’s gentle seas. Take a cruise over summer to watch dolphins surf the bow waves of boats and dugongs graze on seagrass beds. Snorkel or scuba dive with graceful sea turtles and giant manta rays as they glide effortless across sandy banks.428155_num1023353_600x600

Discover the start of the Great Barrier Reef on Lady Elliot Island (internationally recognised as having the best water visibility on the reef) with a two night stay, including flights from Hervey Bay, from $606. November to February is the season to watch green and loggerhead turtles nest and see coral spawning.

Aquatic adventures can be found in the popular tourist centre of Hervey Bay – a great destination to experience the fun, the beauty and the magic of the ocean. Accommodation deals include discounts of up to 30% and a free night’s accommodation with stays of two to more days.

Indulge in a champagne sunset cruise for $55 a head, or cruise up the beautiful Mary River from Hervey Bay to Maryborough for $65.

If skydiving and jet skiing are on the bucket list, cross them off and save with summer deals including a 12,000ft skydive with breath-taking views of Hervey Bay and Fraser Island for $325, and one hour of free sailing or kayaking with every jet-ski hire.

On the Fraser Coast, fishing enthusiasts can hook some of Australia’s most sought after sports fish species – black marlin, golden trevally and barramundi – along with bass, bream and mackerel.

Take a guided fishing tour right into the action zone in and around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island, go fly fishing in the sandy shallows of Fraser Island’s western side, cast a line off the iconic Urangan Pier, and fish the region’s beach and mangrove-lined creeks and rivers.

Enjoy the Fraser Coast’s charming captivating mix of historic streetscapes and hinterland hideaways. In Maryborough, discover the birthplace of the author of Mary Poppins and streets lined with colonial hotels and grand old buildings lovingly restored into museums, boutiques, cafes and galleries.

Uncover the flavours of the Fraser Coast with enticing deals at some of the region’s leading restaurants. Select from menus which are crafted to showcase our fresh regional produce including sweet Hervey Bay scallops, Fraser Island prawns or other wild catch seafood harvested fresh from local waters.

There is fun and adventure to be found in the region’s countryside, with hotels from bygone eras, pioneering museums and wonderful bushland offering opportunities for hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and scenic country drives.

One thing’s for certain – summer on the Fraser Coast is guaranteed to excite, rejuvenate, and leave lasting memories.
