Fraser Coast

Urangan


Description

Sure, Hervey Bay is renowned for its great long stretches of beaches, 40 kilometres in fact. There's boat access points, picnic and barbecue areas, and of course easy access to Fraser Island. Urangan features all of these attributes, plus some surprises.

There is a wonderful marina, at the eastern end of the Bay. This is the departure point for whale watching tours and ferries to Fraser Island as well as a very long pier, measuring just under a kilometre. It is ideal for a brisk pre-breakfast walk.

Slightly inland, just up from Kondari Resort, is one of the 10 best botanic gardens in the State. This is the Great Sandy Region Botanic Garden. It features a landscaped garden area, plus a relatively raw (natural) walking area along with an orchid house. The latter opens at 10.00am.

At the end of the Esplanade, south of the marina, are the remains of an Aboriginal fish trap. It isn't in pristine condition, but its 'bones' can still be identified.

The Urangan markets are popular. These are held on the sencond, fourth (and if five weekends) fifth Sunday of each month. Historically, it was in this area where Matthew Flinders proved that Fraser Island was just that, an island, separated from the mainland by a bay. There is a memorial to Flinders.
