Originally established as a coal mining town, the suburb of Howard in Queensland’s Fraser Coast region has since taken a more agricultural direction, with its economy supported by sugar plantations and citrus orchards.
The suburb has benefited from the fascination of backpackers with Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. It has some notable attractions of its own, including Brooklyn House, a historic colonial residence; the Burrum and District Museum; and St Matthews Church. The Bruce Highway runs through to the suburb, as does the North Coast railway line, making Howard a great location for those who commute to work.
