At Poona Palms Caravan Park, Pauline and Don have a warm welcome for folks who want to get away from it all. It’s not uncommon for people drop in for a night and stay a week, and in the winter, visitors come for extended stays to soak in the sunshine.
The hideaway town of Poona is located on the mainland, opposite Fraser Island, and is popular with holiday-makers who enjoy the quiet life, quiet water and good fishing. The area of water separating us from Fraser is called the “The Great Sandy Straits“, a sheltered waterway still untouched & pristine.
We have 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 your boat, 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.
For those who want a day at the shops, historical Maryborough is only a half-hour drive away, with all of the major brands & quaint boutiques.
