Turkey Beach, QLD

Turkey Beach is a small township that sits in Rodds Bay, two hours drive north of Bundaberg, from Brisbane. Follow the Bruce Highway north, about 550 kilometres, which takes around six hours. The turn off is 10 minutes out of Bororen and the road is dirt, but it is generally kept in good condition.

At Turkey Beach there is a small shop which stocks the essentials, including fuel and ice. Accommodation is available, as there is no camping in the township, and there is a good boat ramp and a hard sandy beach to launch from.

This is dinkum, throw-in-a-line-and-put-your-feet-up-territory with large mangrove inlets, estuaries and creeks. Turkey Beach located at Rodds Harbour is also a dedicated Dugong Sanctuary.
