Boonooroo, QLD

Boonooroo is located along the banks of the Great Sandy Strait, a quiet waterway running between Fraser Island and the mainland. The villages of Boonooroo and Tuan are now close to one and have maintained their ‘old fishing village’ character. Boonooroo itself has a range of general services and facilities for the visitor and is a wonderful place to while away a week of fishing and relaxation!

This is a wallum swamp area, home to a unique collection of Australian flora and fauna including tea trees, Kangaroos, eucalypts, galahs, bottle brush, magpies, wildflowers, bramminy kites and sea eagles. One of Australia’s main RAMSAR sites, the area offers migrating birds a safe resting and feeding ground. It is also the second largest protection area in Queensland for the Dugong. Soon to be classified as a Marine Park, the Great Sandy Strait is an important place for both conservation and recreation.
