Urangan is the easternmost town in the continuous Hervey Bay urban area and it sits on low Dayman Point, looking north into Hervey Bay and east into the dynamic Great Sandy Strait, with Fraser Island 10 km away on the other side of the strait. There is a small rock outcrop at the point which, together with the change in shoreline direction, defines the boundary with Torquay Beach. Urangan beach (1526) faces north-east and runs from the rocks to the Urangan Boat Harbour, where it has built out almost 100 m against the breakwater. It is backed by a shady foreshore reserve in the north and a large car park servicing the boat harbour to the south. The beach is usually calm and has a narrow high tide beach, with tidal flats leading out to the deep strait channels and their extensive tidal shoals.
