The per­fect place to re­lax

En­joy all the plea­sures Poona has to of­fer

Central and North Burnett Times - - ESCAPEWITH US TODAY... -

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.

ANY­ONE FOR FISH­ING: Poona is a very quiet fish­ing vil­lage.
