"Tannum Sands - Small town with great beaches"

Tannum Sands is situated 30 Minutes from Gladstone and about 1 Hour from Rockhampton. Nestled in among the industry of Gladstone is Tannum Sands. Close to the beach and only a short drive to Gladstone, where else would you want to live.

"Tannum Sands - Winner 2018 Cleanest Beach of the Year!"

Where else would you want to live when a town wears this crown!

There are a number of beaches to choose from to visit however for young families Tannum Main Beach is patrolled during the Summer Season, and there is also 4 wheel driving up to Lily's Beach. A Council Permit is required, and you can obtain a permit online or at the Gladstone Regional Council. Known to the locals as "Second Beach" is the unleashed dog beach. If you are looking for another beach option, at low tide you can walk over Wild Cattle Creek and up the eastern side of Wild Cattle Island.

Our community is blessed with an abundance of artists and on the first Saturday of each month BAM (Beach, Arts, Music) is held on the Millenium Esplanade, where you will find local produce and wares for sale along with a band. BYO chair & drinks and buy a wood fired pizza, watch the sunset over the water, listening to a variety of local muso's.

Tannum Surf Club has the best view in town looking out to the local islands - Cold beer and fabulous food - you can't beat it. Tannum Sands Hotel also has a fabulous menu and cold beer on tap again with magnificent views over the water.

There are a number of small cafes which offer fantastic coffee and meals.

I live in Tannum Sands and have done so for the past 19 years and I honestly would not live anywhere else.

"Lovely seaside town"

We have been here for 3 years. It has got a bit busier because of the Curtis Island Project but still a lovely place to raise children. The beaches are clean. Great fishing. The schools are excellent!
Cons
  • Public transport to Gladstone is not very good at all.
