South East Queensland Weather Update South East Queensland Weather Update

As at 1500 AEST (30/05/13) there are no weather warnings for the Hervey Bay region. There are currently light to moderate E/SE winds, fresh at times about the coast and islands. Temperatures reached a high of 24C today. For more information, please visit the Bureau Of Meteorology website.


Fraser Island's Great Sandy National park is open. Large ocean swells with higher than normal tides have caused beach erosion and exposed rocks and holes on the eastern beach. This erosion and deteriorating driving conditions are expected to continue over the next few days and drivers are advised to be aware of beach hazards including fallen trees and other debris.

Beach camping is currently being restricted in certain areas and campers are advised to set camps back from the foredune areas. Click for the latest Fraser Island condition report

TOURING ON FRASER ISLAND (Fraser Explorer Tours, Cool Dingo Tours, Beauty Spots Tours)

Due to beach erosion a higher than normal tide in the middle of the day, we have a slight change to the regular touring itineraries. As McLaughlan Rocks (just north of Happy Valley) is currently impassable three hours either side of high tide, tour guests are transferring to a bus that is located on the northern side of the rocks and are continuing their tour as scheduled.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will continue to update you as conditions change. Tour guests are advised to contact our Reservations Team on 1800 FRASER with any questions; Resort guests are welcome to visit our reception with any questions.


Barges to Wanggoolba Creek and Kingfisher Bay Resort are operating as normal. Services from Inskip Point are also running as normal.


Thank you for your continued patience. We will be monitoring conditions closely and subsequent updates will be posted on the home pages of our websites under the Breaking News section.
