Nestled in the hinterland of Hervey Bay is the lovely historical village of Howard. Serviced twice daily by the ‘Tilt Train,’ Howard is an easy 15 minute drive to Maryborough, 25 minutes to Hervey Bay and 20 minutes to the beaches of Toogoom and Burrum Heads.

Howard has several buildings of historical significance including a beautifully restored Queenslander offering guided tours and Devonshire Teas. Howard’s small museum tells of the coal mining and farming history of the area and includes war memorabilia. Country markets are held in Steley Street on the first Saturday of every month and there are a couple of great swimming and fishing spots to enjoy on the nearby Burrum River.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
