Fraser Island Boat Charters is a great way to explore the glorious waters of the Sandy Strait.
You can take the 6 berth SV Indigo or 10 berth Cattitude on a skippered charter or if you want to fly solo, there’s bareboating too where you’re given a full tutorial on the vessel before you set sail.
With an board kitchen, bathroom, and barbecue, it makes for the perfect getaway but with Scott’s newest offering it gets even better.
Pairing up with Hervey Bay Fly and Sport Fishing, you can anchor your vessel and boat hop onto the fishing charter for a day of rod bending with Andrew Chorley.
Andrew, or “Chozza” to his mates, is a born and bred Hervey Bay local and he’s been guiding these waters for over a decade.
When it comes to species, Andrew reckons you’ve got plenty to choose from in the region.
“You get School Mackerel, Spotted Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Queen Fish, Golden Trevally, the list goes on.” He said.
The beauty of hopping aboard Andrew’s fishing charter is you don’t need any experience and all the gear is provided.
Once back on dry land, why not stay in Hervey Bay a little longer? There’s plenty to do and Fraser Coast RV Park has you covered for accommodation.
Here, owner Suzanne Taylor welcomes guests along with husband Paul and their dog Rosie.
It’s a popular spot with anglers as the property backs right onto the river meaning keen crabbers and fishermen have easy access to their next catch.
But there’s plenty to do off the water as well.
The 75 acres property has 40 acres dedicated to land for wildlife.
“Over three kilometres of walking trails so you can go walking if you want to, and bird watching all that sort of thing,” said Suzanne.
“We’ve got a luxury cabin, lovely log cabin Mango Lodge. We’ve got Bertha the Aussie van, she’s a real little beauty. And then Gertrude the Gypsy wagon for something different,” She said. “Everything’s corrugated iron, rustic tin. Little knick-knacks all around the place just to give it that real rustic authentic Australian feel.”
There are powered and unpowered sites for caravans, trailers, and plenty of campsites to choose from also.
