Experience whale watching, based at what is likely to be the newest Caravan Park in Australia.
Fraser Coast’s Pier Caravan Park opened for business last Friday, and adjoins Hervey Bay’s historic Urangan Pier – at almost one kilometre, it’s one of the longest in Australia. You’ll be rewarded with a great view of the town and you may see fish, rays and dolphins.
The Caravan Park is also walking distance to beaches, markets and eateries, as well as being close to the marina and shopping centres.
There’s a swimming pool and games room available, brand new amenities include a camp kitchen, BBQ, dump point, drying area and gated entry. Plus it is pet friendly!
We drove along the esplanade, and stumbled on EAT at Dan and Steph’s. I remembered them from My Kitchen Rules, and when they visited nearby festivals. With views of the Bay, the café offers an all day menu and I couldn’t take my eyes off the choices! Normally there may be one of two dishes that grabs your eye, but I was in a quandary!
After your culinary adventure, it is probably time to walk off your lunch. Hervey Bay is perfect for cycling and walking with beautiful foreshore paths – you can travel for miles. There’s also a good range of shops in the town, as well as op shops, cinemas, and plenty of clubs. Hervey Bay is a known retiree destination.
The whale watching capital of Australia’s season extends from June to December. Best to book early as the tours are very popular.
