Hervey Bay City Guide
Be prepared to hit the ground running when you arrive in Hervey Bay, because there is a ton of stuff to do!
Located right on the Coral Sea in Queensland, Hervey Bay offers rich history, sightseeing, and beautiful beaches.
Because it lies right on the coast, Hervey Bay's most popular activities involve the water.
Here, you'll find one-of-a-kind whale-watching. If you want to get to know the humpback whales, there are a variety of companies that will take you out for a day-long tour.
For a beautiful history lesson, head to Fraser Island. Known for its aboriginal history, this island is home to soft sand that's actually unique to the island! Fraser Island is also known for fishing, ATV (all-terrain vehicle) trails, and shipwrecks.
You can also see many of the sights in Hervey Bay through the glass bottom of a boat. The area is chock full of colourful reefs and tons of wildlife who call them home!
Most of the food you eat in Hervey Bay will include the water, too.
Seabelle Restaurant is located on Fraser Island. It offers fine dining that the locals say is nothing short of "extravagant".
For something more casual, head to Salt Cafe. This charming little cafe is a local hotspot.
The Waterfront Restaurant is aptly-named! Located right on the beach, this gourmet restaurant even has a built-in aquarium where kids can pet fish!
Hervey Bay is the perfect place to indulge, and there are many resorts that will cater to your every need. Most of them can be found right on the coastline.
If you're looking for something a little cheaper, you're in luck. Many of the more budget-friendly accommodation is just a short walk from the beach - so you won't be missing out if you don't have a lot of money to spend!
