Sandy Strait – incredible sports fishing options

Sandy Strait

The Sandy Strait is a large estuary system located south of Hervey Bay in Queensland. Bordered by Fraser Island on the east, and the mainland on the west, there are numerous small islands, channels and banks that hold many great sports fishing species.

Hervey Bay waters also feature some reef and solid structure, which holds species such as snapper, along with mackerel, queenies and trevally and upstream estuary type environments where you can find fishing species like barra, threadfin and blue salmon, mangrove jack, tarpon and monster flathead along with bream and whiting.

We have plenty of kangaroo’s that visit our River Heads Caravan Park and 66 species of birds have been identified so far. Peter Rabbit and his family also live up in the front paddock. With 4kms of walking trails to explore you can see goanna lizards scampering up the trees, along with echidnas and wallabies. There are plenty of places to explore. A peaceful getaway from modern technology to enjoy nature.

If you are travelling to Fraser Island then this is the spot for you.  Not your average Caravan Park, more like a National Park with 40 acres dedicated to Land for Wildlife.  Powered sites available with fire pits scattered throughout the property.  Enjoy cooking a meal in our unique Australian Bush Kitchen or experience our spacious rainwater shower, “voted best shower in Australia” by some of our campers.  Catering to all types of camping, wheelchair friendly and fur babies welcome.  Enjoy a luxury escape in Mango Lodge.

We loved our stay for 5 nights with the family. Large open spaces, beautiful and clean facilities, perfect for families and groups. Pet friendly and so close to Fraser Island. We will be back for sure! Highly recommended.

So very impressed

Popped in for a short 1 night stay but ended up staying 2. Was so thrilled to find a place I could bush camp and take my dog that also allowed fires and wasn’t over run with campervans and trailers. 

Great little gem

Great bush camp just out of Hervey Bay. Plenty of room to park vans ect, super friendly host (Susan) great walking tracks and plenty of wildlife. Dogs allowed and fire permitted, Secure place to leave your van and explore the area. Short distance to Fraser Island Ferry.

Bush Kitchen

There are plenty of wide open spaces for you to camp. We have a Bush Kitchen with gas cook top, sink, fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave.   A large fire pit for groups and smaller fire pits scattered around the property which can be relocated to suit your needs.
