Enjoy a quiet, relaxing break
Poona has top fishing, lifestyle
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.
