Discover the neighborhoods of Hervey Bay
The beachside city of Hervey Bay is made up of several villages, including Urangan, Torquay, Scarness, Pialba, and Point Vernon. The destination is popular with backpackers and those who love watching the change of the seasons. The area is serviced by Hervey Bay Airport which is only 4km from Urangan. A few hours of driving from the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane is another way to arrive.
Hervey Bay serves as the gateway to both Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef. Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island and is serviced by ferries from the harbor. Whale watching is a major activity here as this locale is where the majestic creatures stop for a while on their migration. And keeping it in the water, you can take a glass-bottom boat for day or night viewings of the coral. Cycling is also an ideal sport for landlubbers with 18km of foreshore cycleway, and the culture seekers will enjoy a visit to the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum. Along the Esplanade, dining and pubs can be easily found and include a range of cuisines.
