Poona, situated on Queensland's Great Sandy Strait, is a little hideaway village nestled in the State forest overlooking the pristine waters of the Great Sandy Strait and Fraser Island.

Poona, amidst the quiet seclusion still has the convenience and services that a larger town has to offer, with the Heritage City of Maryborough an easy 25 minute drive away.

With access to the Great Sandy Marine Park and the southern parts of Fraser Island, Poona boasts some of the best estuarine fishing in southern Queensland. The protected waters and the expansive mangrove lined creeks make it the ideal fishing territory.

Poona offers great opportunities to just relax or take a walk on the various trails and see some of our wonderful local wildlife including numerous bird species. In spring the wildflowers are also on dislay. Part of the Ramsar wetlands there are a number of migrating shorebirds to see. The Strait is a marine haven for dolphins, turtles and dugong.

Poona, has about 335 homes and a permanent population of 481 but swelling to double/triple that number on weekends and holiday times. Poona has holiday accommodation options with a range of holiday homes and the caravan park.
