Hervey Bay has an abundance of riches outshining many other tourist destinations in Australia. It is the stepping off point to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, the location of some of the world’s best whale watching encounters … and it has arguably the safest, family-friendly beaches on the Queensland coast.
Hervey Bay has five great beaches along its 16km Esplanade foreshore … each with tracts of beautiful sand looking out to calm, protected waters sheltered by Fraser Island.
Kick off your shoes and relax. If you want to unwind, Hervey Bay has a laid-back lifestyle that welcomes barefoot walks along the beach, bicycle rides beside the ocean and eating fish and chips out of the paper wrapping with your fingers.
In the Bay, life is built around the stunning esplanade dotted with parks, playgrounds, piers, picnic areas, barbecues, alfresco cafés, restaurants and shops.
This water lover’s paradise is made for swimming, fishing, water sports and fun beach activities, no matter what the season.
