The Fraser Coast region is a holiday playground surrounded by nature, with long sandy beaches, relaxing island retreats, abundant marine life and pristine parks.
The region includes the areas of Fraser Island, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Tiaro and the Great Sandy Strait. It enjoys a year-round mild climate making it an ideal coastal destination.
International visitation increased 15.1% in the year ending March 2017. These visitors also opted to stay longer with a 28.8% increase in international visitor nights. In the same period domestic visitor nights and expenditure both grew (by 7.1% and 7.2% respectively), due to an increase in business travellers.
Fraser Coast Tourism & Events Ltd. (FCTE) is the region’s peak body for regional marketing, event and tourism development.
