En­joy a quiet, re­lax­ing break

Poona has top fish­ing, life­style

Central and North Burnett Times - - ESCAPE WITH US TODAY... -

NES­TLED along the Great Sandy Strait, be­tween Boonooroo and Tin­nan­bar, and ad­ja­cent to Fraser Is­land, the hide­away town­ship of Poona has re­tained its charm and re­laxed life­style and boasts one of the most pic­turesque car­a­van parks in Queens­land.

Poona is pop­u­lar with hol­i­day-mak­ers who en­joy the quiet life, quiet water and good fish­ing.

In the heart of this small com­mu­nity is a pas­sion for re­lax­ation and fish­ing, only min­utes away from Fraser Is­land.

Poona 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.

It is a marine won­der­land – fish, dugong, tur­tles, 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 walks, watch­ing birdlife and dis­cov­er­ing the wild­flow­ers.

A stay at Poona Palms Car­a­van Park pro­vides 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, right on the beach­front, with views to­wards the south­ern part of Fraser Is­land, is a de­light­ful hide­away spot for a hol­i­day.

It’s an easy drive from the city, yet seems to be in an­other world.

At Poona Palms Car­a­van Park, 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 has car­a­van and tent sites and on-site vans.

There are also two and three-bed­room first floor un- its which have pre­mier views of the Sandy Strait and Fraser Is­land.

Newly com­pleted one-bed­room re­sort-style units are also avail­able and sleep up to five peo­ple.

Th­ese taste­fully dec­o­rated units fea­ture a large bath­room, cook­ing fa­cil­i­ties, spa­cious lay­out and pa­tio.

With linen sup­plied, there’s ev­ery­thing you need for a nightly or ex­tended hol­i­day.

Why not take ad­van­tage of the mid-week spe­cial on units – stay for four nights and only pay for three in one of the fully self-con­tained units.

Con­tact Pauline or Don on 4129 8167 and re­vi­talise at Poona Palms Car­a­van Park.
