DISCOVER THE BEST KEPT SECRET - Ideal for those looking for a unique experience to rest and relax by the sea
Coco Palms Coastal Retreat is located in a truly perfect part of Toogoom – you won’t need to drive anywhere. Our beach access is less than a minute’s walk away, where there is all day swimming at the mouth of Beelbi Creek, even at low tide.
The location gets better as you can make use of the BBQ facilities at nearby Fixter Park. A few minutes’ walk across the boardwalk will take you to the Salty Squid Café and Goody’s on the Beach.
The public boat ramp is around the corner too, giving you convenient access for boating and other watersport activity.
CLOSE ENOUGH TO HERVEY BAY BUT MILES AWAY FROM CARE - Easy 15-minute drive to Hervey Bay
Coco Palms Coastal Retreat is a rare majestic Queenslander double storey heritage house tucked away in the quiet end of Kingfisher Parade, Toogoom.
WHERE IS TOOGOOM?
Toogoom is located on Queensland’s Fraser Coast, just a 15-minute drive from Hervey Bay which is famous for observing the annual Humpback Whale migration and world heritage listed Fraser Island.
Toogoom is exactly how you would picture a quiet seaside village – lots of fishing, swimming, water activities, walks on the beach, especially at low tide when the landscape is completely different and new things to discover.
WHAT TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION DOES THE PROPERTY OFFER?
The property is fully self-contained and offers TWO accommodation options, which can be booked separately or together.
HAU'OLI HOUSE is great for a few friends or families with older children. It takes up the entire first floor and some of the downstairs. It consists of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 separate living areas. Continue reading if you want to book the house.
ALOHA APARTMENT suits couples or families with young children. Although it is part of the property, it is completely separate from the house and takes up half of the downstairs.

There is also a separate television lounge area furnished with a sofa bed downstairs – perfect for teenagers or parents alike.

The backyard area is fenced and has two carports.
IF YOU HAVE LOST THE ART OF “DOING NOTHING” - then you've come to the right place to find it again
Being close to the beach and taking the time to just be, is something that we need to do on a regular basis for our own well-being and health. Whether you are here with your family or friends, just by being here, everything slows down and very quickly, you start to unwind and relax for a few days.
If adventure is more your style, then there’s loads to do to explore and be active in Toogoom and around Hervey Bay. Here are just a few options for you to think about.
Water sports: beach and/or deep sea fishing, kayaking, jet-skiing and boating.
Adventure: whale watching between July and November, day trip to Fraser Island.
Historic tours: take a drive to the heritage listed town of Maryborough or nearby Bundaberg.
Or, you can do next to nothing staying in:
Swim at the best part of Toogoom beach.
Explore the sea bed at low tide – the tide goes out around 500 metres so there’s loads to see.
Try your luck at fishing.
Bring your kayak – best at high tide.
Fly a kite – perfect on the beach as there’s no trees or power lines.
Stroll to the Salty Squid Café for the best freshly baked croissants and pastries.
Wander over to Goody’s for a lazy Saturday or Sunday lunch where there is always live music playing.
