About the area

The twin towns of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands are located approximately 22 kms south of Gladstone, which is around 580kms north of Brisbane just off the Bruce Highway. Boyne/Tannum is a nice little coastal town of around 12,000 residents. The twin-towns are only divided by the Boyne River. There are two caravan parks, 6 motels, one hotel, three shopping centers, four boat ramps, two service stations, a 13-hole golf course (Soon to be 18 Holes) and a whole host of other things to see and do while you are here. Tannum Sands also has a surf beach with a surf club along the main beach.

The mouth of the Boyne River is well located as a starting platform for your reef trip. The River mouth has undergone maintenance dredging to provide a larger tidal window for access. From there it’s across the harbour and shipping channel and then onto the reef; which lies around 30 miles offshore.
