Fraser Island, off Australia’s eastern Queensland coast, is the world’s largest sand island, stretching over 120km. It’s a camping fishing and ecotourism destination, with it’s beaches perfect for surf-casting. It is also one of the best locations to see Dingos in the wild. Hervey Bay on it’s northern coast is widely known as a site for observing humpback whales. Whale-watching boats operate during the July to November migration season. It’s also one of the best fishing destinations on Australia’s East Coast.
We fished off Fraser for Tailor and in Hervey Bay for trevally. Hervey Bay boasts a half dozens species of trevally that can be caught – many up to 10 to 15kgs in weight. If you’re planning on fishing here get a hold of legend Andrew Chorley at www.herveybaysportfishing.com.au. You wont be dissappointed.
