Around 20km south of Gladstone you’ll find the gorgeous beachside town of Tannum Sands – a sleepy stretch of coastline that lends itself to a good old-fashioned family getaway.
Here you’ll find relaxed coastal vibes ready to seep into your pores before you’ve had a chance to slather on some sunscreen.
Did you know that Tannum Sands has the highest number of registrations of boats per capita than any other place in the country?
In this story on Queensland Weekender we go to the beach and fishing in Tannum Sands, grab a feed at the surf club and set up our holiday base at the Tannum Sands Discovery Holiday Park.
