Welcome to River Heads
River Heads is situated just a short 18km drive from Hervey Bay, passing through the suburb of Booral. The last few kilometers of road travels parallel to Fraser Island making for some truly breathtaking scenic coastal views.
The town is built on a narrow peninsula surrounded by the Great Sandy Strait (to the east), the mouth of the Mary River (south) and the mouth of the Susan River (a tributary of the Mary) to the west.
The Fraser Venture and Kingfisher Bay barge depart daily from River Heads to Fraser Island with security parking available. Future plans include a large modern marina precinct. Currently the local shopping village features mostly village style shops and a cafe, or you can enjoy a picnic lunch or a barbecue at Progress Park.
River Heads is also a great spot for the avid angler with boat ramps suitable for launching a wide range of boats. There is also ample car parking provided for cars and trailers.

What local residents have to say:
“A Little Slice of Heaven!“
The area is lovely and residents are always kind to each other. There is always plenty to do in town with the River Heads Progress Association always planning something fun for the community.
If you love fishing; River Heads is perfect! The area is also teaming with wildlife including birds that will eat from your hands and dolphins that enjoy putting on an impromptu show as they travel alongside the many boats on the water.
This is undoubtedly one of the best places to live in QLD.
