Places to go in the Sandy Straits

Great Sandy Strait -AN AQUATIC PLAYGROUND    

LOCATED BETWEEN the mainland and Fraser Island, the Great Sandy Strait is a diverse mix of marine and coastal wetlands, officially recognised as one of the most important wetland areas on earth. The Great Sandy Strait was recently declared a Biosphere – giving worldwide recognition of the outstanding natural beauty and high levels of biodiversity of the region.  

The crystal clear turquoise water, long stretches of white sand guarded by high sand dunes, native woodlands, heath awash with wildfl owers and dense rainforest combine to create an aquatic paradise.

Dotted along its coastline are the charming coastal townships of Poona, Tuan, Boonooroo, Maaroom and Tinnanbar. All retain that elusive ‘old fi shing village’ character and charm and are popular holiday and fishing retreats.  (Article sourced from
