Great Sandy Strait - Fraser Island's Playground


The hideaway town of Poona is located on the mainland, opposite Fraser Island, and is popular with holiday-makers who enjoy the quiet life, quiet water and good fishing.

Access to Poona is via the Cooloola Coast Road, from either Maryborough or Gympie. Poona, right on the beachfront, with views towards the southern part of Fraser Island, is a delightful hideaway spot for a holiday. It's an easy drive from the city, yet seems to be in another world.


Poona Palms Caravan Park has caravan and tent sites and on-site vans. There are also two and three bedroom first floor units which have premier views of the Sandy Strait and Fraser Island, only 9 km away. A Shop & Convenience store are located on-site for all basic needs. No fuel available here.
