Elliott Heads, Queensland, Australia, forms the northern boundary of the shifting mouth of the 1 km wide Elliott River. There is a small inlet just off the mouth, while Coonarr sand spit forms the southern shore. The river mouth and settlement of the same name are located 15 km south-east of Bundaberg and contain a number of holiday houses, that surround a large foreshore reserve containing a beachfront caravan park and the Elliott Heads Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1965. The reserve continues around into the river mouth, with a large kiosk overlooking the mouth.


The main beach is a relatively safe beach close inshore at mid to high tide.


Usually a low beach break, with the best surf over the river mouth shoals. Waves average 0.5 m, with occasional higher swell coming in around Fraser Island.  Elliott Heads is seasonal patrolled by the local Surf Lifesaving Club.


A very popular spot owing to the deep river entrance. Most people fish from boats or from the river channel. A boat ramp is available.


An interesting little beach equally popular with swimmers and fishers. It has a well-maintained foreshore reserve, together with the added safety of the surf lifesaving club.
