The glorious city of Hervey Bay is located on the coast of Queensland, approx 290 km from our State Capital of Brisbane. It's part of the Fraser Coast Regional Council and Wide Bay region.
The Indigenous Butchulla people are the original custodians of Hervey Bay including beautiful Fraser Island, K'gari in local language.
We holidayed in Hervey Bay regularly when i was in primary school. I have fond memories of burring my sisters in the sand at Shelly Beach, tasting salt in my hair after being in the ocean all day, and walking along the esplanade at night to get ice-creams. Hervey Bay holds a special place in my heart, and it's always so nice to return . I love bringing my kids to Hervey Bay, here are a few of our favourite things to do!
