Location
Boyne Island is a town in Queensland, located 25 km south of Gladstone. It is located on the west bank of the Boyne River. The town was named for the Boyne River, which was named by John Oxley in 1823.

Tannum Sands is located on the southern side of the mouth of the Boyne River and is often referred to as Boyne Island’s twin town. The town received its original name Tannum when a group of children returned from a Sunday School picnic to the beach quite sunburnt. The comment was made “we can really tan ‘um over there.” One of the people present thought it would be a good name for the area and registered the name.
