The perfect place to relax
Enjoy all the pleasures Poona has to offer
THE hideaway town of Poona is popular with holidaymakers who enjoy the quiet life, quiet water and good fishing.
Nestled in the Great Sandy Strait between Boonooroo and Tinnnabar, and adjacent to Fraser Island, Poona has retained its charm and relaxed lifestyle.
The place to stay is Poona Palms Caravan Park where Pauline and Don Wallace have a warm welcome for folks who want to get away from it all.
Some people drop in for a night and stay a week, and in the winter visitors come for extended stays.
Poona Palms Caravan Park offers caravan and tent sites and on-site vans.
There are also two and three bedroom first floor units that have premier views of the Sandy Strait and Fraser Island, only 9km away.
Newly completed one bedroom resort-style units are also available and sleep up to five people.
The tastefully decorated units feature a large bathroom, cooking facilities, spacious layout and patio.
Linen is supplied along with everything you need for a night or extended holiday.
Poona is a marine wonderland with fish, dugong, tur- tles, dolphins, mangroves, seagrass pastures and birdlife.
Many fish species are in abundance, along with sand and mud crabs.
Excellent fishing is available either from the shore or out in the dinghy, where mangrove-lined creeks can be explored or you can try your luck in the deep holes along Fraser Island.
Yabbies can be pumped on the low tide flats.
To relax and unwind, Poona offers peace and quiet, which is sometimes hard to find these days.
Enjoy nature by taking long walks, watching the birdlife and discovering the wildflowers.
Poona offers the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
For those who want a day at the shops, Maryborough is only a half-hour drive away.
Access to Poona is via the Cooloola Coast Rd from either Maryborough or Gympie.
Poona also offers a great place for children to play and swim safely, with dolphins playing just off the beach and dugong that might be heard at night chomping as they feed.
The area is also blessed with abundant birdlife to tempt birdwatchers.
