Beaches and Coastal Management
Fraser Coast Beaches
Fraser Coast's beaches and coastline are unique as they are greatly influenced by Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Straits. Our warm sheltered waters provide safe swimming and water activities for all ages.
Fishing is a past time enjoyed by many, whether it be off the beach, from the iconic Urangan Pier or at one of the many creeks, rivers and estuaries in the region.

Shark Safety in Queensland Waters
With sharks becoming more active during the warmer months, Fisheries Queensland, part of the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation are urging people to play it safe when visiting Queensland waters.
Shoreline Erosion Managenment Plan (SEMP)
Council is developing a for its 112 km of open ocean coastline which stretches from Burrum Heads to Tinnanbar.
In areas like Toogoom you may notice dead or fallen trees on the beach in these areas. These have been purposefully left to provide habitat for marine and other coastal species.
Dead seagrass that washes up on our beaches often gets smelly as it breaks down in the sun. Whether dead or alive, seagrasses provide important habitat for many animals.
