Discovery Coast

What is it?

The Discovery Coast is a unique outdoor holiday destination with a beautiful and varied coastline stretching from Baffle Creek in the south to Foreshores and Hummock Hill Island in the north.

Where is it?

It is strategically located on the Queensland Coast at the boarder between South East and Central Queensland.

Situated about 460 Klms north of Brisbane the capital of the state and the nearest International airport. Agnes Water is approximately the geographic center of the Discovery Coast and is equally distant, some 120 klms from Bundaberg in the south and Gladstone in the north.

How do you get there?

Regular domestic air flights of approximately one hour are available from Brisbane to both Bundaberg and Gladstone followed by a 90 min drive by car.

The standard rail or the Tilt Train from Brisbane will stop at Miriam Vale by arrangement and a number of coach services make regular scheduled stops daily at Miriam Vale.

Traveling by car due north from Brisbane along the Bruce hwy for 6 hrs to Miriam Vale, or divert through Bundaberg like the majority do. Either way it is an easy day’s drive.

Unfortunately there is no scheduled maritime service to the area as yet.


Accommodation types are varied and include Motel, B&B’s, Holiday Homes, Units and Caravan Parks. During holidays these are at a premium and it would pay to book.
