Got to be more specific mate. If you're offshore, then there's no bars. If you're coming into the straits then its wide bay bar. Fraser's a bloody big place!

There are groups that often do these trips, the Riviera Boats are currently doing their East Coast to Hayman Island trip and they left the Gold Coast about 2 weeks ago. There would be others as well. A lot depends on how you want to do it; come up inshore from Goldy or through the Seaway; pull in at Bribie on the way; a stop at Mooloolaba; cross at Tin Can Bay and motor up to Urangan or go around the top of Fraser and across the Breaksea and back to Urangan or into Bundaberg or further north. As CT says more info needed.

Coast guard tin can bay will escort you through the bar for a donation if you are unsure. Get onto them directly to organise.
