Great Sandy Marine Park Turtle Discovery and Cultural Eco Tour

64 reviews
The Great Sandy Straits Marine Park lies off Hervey Bay and offers pristine waterways, reefs, islands, and marine life. This glass-bottom eco-tour lets you enjoy them to the max from every angle—from above water, below water, and land. Admire the corals through the glass, watch for turtles, dolphins, and dugong; stop to swim and snorkel; and uncover indigenous culture at an island. Onboard lunch and snorkel equipment is included.

Nothing to exciting. Looks like a good fishing spot. Was a nice walk. A few chairs in the middle for a rest.

We never tire of the walk out along the pier - there is something different each time. This morning it was watching the Osprey eagle strutting its stuff along the pier, last week it was a giant flathead in the water waiting in ambush for its next meal, then there are the locals/tourists/photographers.

At 0.8km long this is a long pier but a good way to exercise and enjoy the sea without getting your feet wet. During my walk to the end of the pier I saw a large turtle wallowing below the surface and on the other side a couple of dolphins playing, you don';t see that everyday, maybe this was my luck day. Plenty of fishermen at the end of the pier hoping to catch Giant trevally but with not much luck. Interestingly, at low tide the pier has no water under it at certain points, just sand, if caught at the right time you can walk under the pier at its mid point, such is the tide movement in Hervey Bay. Very enjoyable walk and if you go there on Market Days you can have a stroll around the market and take in the atmosphere of Urangan

Went for an afternoon stroll along the pier. Beautiful scenery and abundant bird life seen. Locals were out fishing and catching some decent sized fish. Views of the coastline and Fraser Island are spectacular!! Pier surface is slightly uneven as made from wooden sleepers, so not suitable for those instead on their feet.
