History

Burrum Heads historical sites near holiday homes

Hervey Bay Historical Village & Museum, located half an hour away from Burrum Heads holiday accommodation, has preserved so much early 19th- and 20th-century history along Fraser Coast, that it has won multiple awards. You can discover what life was like for the early settlers by touring the 21 buildings on site from that era.

Burrums Head National Park is another well-preserved part of Fraser Coast history that you should visit while on holiday. In 1936, an old cypress pine forest was identified and became a reserve, which evolved into Burrum Heads National Park, where you can walk along riverbanks lined with mangroves, and swamps stained by tea trees and wallum heathland.
