  • First time & great coffee & fantastic eggs Benedict. The view is relaxing too. Overall very good experience. 10 out of 10
  • Great fun for the kids on a hot day. Have never had a complaint. Area for small children is brilliant. Slide is well supervised in addition to parental supervision. One complaint - it opens at 10am - Too late during our summer.
  • Favourite place to take the kids to burn off some energy. Suitable for all ages, really a great local facility provided by council.
  • Terrific place. Free fun, good coffee and hot chips.
  • Fantastic experience. Even opened on Easter weekend! Lockers are $4 for four hours (coins only). Parking is a bit tricky but it was a peak weekend!

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.
