    Definitely worth walking along at night. A very calm, chilled walk which makes for a great walk with a significant other. Rather romantic! Perfect with some warm Australian weather!

Where to stay in Hervey Bay

From one end of town to the other, Hervey Bay is dotted with places to stay, ranging from luxurious hotels and apartments to cozy guesthouses and hostels. Many of these put you right next to the beach, or just a couple of blocks inland with easy access to the coast. The town also features a selection of RV parks fully equipped with all the facilities you might need. There are also several camping areas in town, but if you prefer to spend your vacation surrounded by verdant nature, a much better choice is to hop on a ferry and head to nearby Fraser Island.
