ANCHOR UP AT SCARNESS JUST OFF THE BEACHES OF HERVEY BAY
Jump in the tender and head to Enzo’s on the Beach for a sunset session
Stroll along the beaches of Hervey Bay
Jump in for a swim
Travel time to Scarness from the Great Sandy Straits Marina is approximately 1 hour
Be mindful that you don’t anchor too close to shore, there is a small reef just off scarness to avoid. As always, stay in regular contact with the team at Fraser Island Boat Charters.
For a spot close to the harbour and with views of the beautiful coastal town of Hervey Bay, you can anchor in front of Scarness Beach.
In a south, south easterly or south westerly wind, you can tuck into the coastline just before the reef in Scarness and be sheltered for a good night's sleep. This would be a perfect spot for the last night of your Fraser Coast sailing holiday if weather permits, with a short travel back to the marina the next morning.
The sunset knows how to put on a show here and one of our favourite ways to enjoy it is to take the tender ashore and go for a stroll on the beach or head on up to ‘Enzo’s on the Beach’ for a sunset session complete with cocktails and tapas style dining.
With the Hervey Bay shoreline being sheltered thanks to Fraser Island (K’gari), this is also a great spot to jump off the back of the boat for a swim during the day.
