How to holiday in Hervey Bay

Somewhere to stay:

When you’re travelling, a comfortable home-away-from-home is always top of the holidaying list.  If you’re looking for something that suits a variety of travellers, Discovery Parks Hervey Bay is a great go-to.

They have powered and unpowered sites, comfortable cabins and for something a little extra, you might like to lap up the luxuries of a Safari Glamping Tent.

Something to eat:

If you ask us, any great holiday should involve delicious food – and plenty of it!

Hervey Bay locals, Dan and Steph Mulheron made their name on Channel 7’s competitive cooking show, My Kitchen Rules. Among their many ventures after winning the 2013 series, they’ve recently opened up one of the town’s coolest restaurants! Black Bear is a Canadian style restaurant that serves up mouthwatering pizzas, poutine, brioche burgers and much, much more.

From the minute you walk through the doors, you’ll be transported to a wood cabin, with bears, moose and a cheeky beaver. If that doesn’t pique your interest, we don’t know what will!

Another spot to grab a hearty meal is the Hervey Bay Boat Club. The restaurant overlooks the marina and serves up fresh, local seafood, delicious steaks and seasonal fruit and vegetables. You can also treat yourself to a cocktail from the bar or satisfy your sweet tooth with a decadent dessert.

Something to do:

For the grownups:

The Boat Club isn’t just about fine food, they also run a number of cruises out on the bay. Their vessel is docked only a few steps from the club, so it’s the perfect thing to do after a meal.

The “Twilight Cruise” includes a glass of complimentary welcome champagne and a laid back 2-hour scenic cruise that takes in the sites of the Great Sandy Strait.

For the kids:

If you’re travelling with little ones in tow, Wetside Waterpark is sure to be a hit! It’s FREE to enter and is sure to provide hours of entertainment for the little and big kids too!
