The Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation formed by a dedicated band of volunteers to ensure the future of the sanctuary and its inhabitants. If you are considering a voluntary position with the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary, please view and fill in our Volunteer Pack.

We are located in the Heritage City of Maryborough, Queensland, a 3-hour drive north of Brisbane and a short 30-minute drive to Hervey Bay, the whale watching capital of Queensland and the gateway to spectacular Fraser Island.

Our canteen provides delicious morning and afternoon teas, as well as light lunches. Hot and cold drinks are available. A range of souvenirs are on sale. A variety of wildlife paintings by local, well-known artists are also on display. Take advantage of our BBQ facilities and enjoy a family picnic with a difference.

We specialise in tours for school groups, which are both entertaining and educational. Birthday parties, community events and family days out are also catered for. Bus parking is available.

Our knowledgeable volunteer staff are happy to guide you and hope you enjoy the sanctuary as much as they do.
