Our region is a stunning tapestry of nature's wonders.
The Fraser Coast sits within the Great Sandy Biosphere, which is part of a World Network of Biosphere Reserves covering internationally-designated protected areas. The Biosphere Reserve status was awarded by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - and gives worldwide recognition to the region's outstanding natural beauty and diversity.
It's all part of what makes our lifestyle so special and why we are naturally one of the happiest regional communities in Australia.
The Fraser Coast is an intriguing and unbeatable mix of stunning landscapes, islands, cities and towns.
From Fraser Island - the world's largest sand Island - to the heritage streetscapes of Maryborough; from the rich farmlands of Tiaro, to the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay, one of Australia's most popular beach destinations; from old mining villages to peaceful seaside retreats set on the shoreline of the Great Sandy Strait.
