Beaches 32

Hervey Bay on the coast of Queensland, is home to beautiful beaches and unusually calm waters thanks to protection from World Heritage-listed K’gari Fraser Island. Hervey Bay is the perfect spot for families searching for safe swimming beaches and those looking for a relaxing dip in the ocean without big crowds.

Hervey Bay is ideal for long leisurely walks on the beach, but make sure you’re paying attention because you could spot some resident marine life including dolphins and dugongs  along the way.

The 13 kilometres of beachfront can also be explored via walking and bikeways that stretch for the length of the entire esplanade to make for amazing views from Point Vernon all the way to Urangan.
