Hervey Bay Lifestyle
This is the Life!
There is a quiet sea-change movement taking place in Hervey Bay! Visitors are appreciating the friendly coastal lifestyle so much that they are relocating to this natural beauty permanently.
We could talk all day about how awesome Hervey Bay is (of course why else would we live here), but to help you quickly consider whether it could be the place for you to Visit or Stay, here's a snapshot of what you'll love.
Where is Hervey Bay?
Hervey Bay is only a little over 3-hours drive north of Brisbane or 2-hours north of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. This means whilst we live in a relaxed regional seaside paradise, we can still easily access the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane (35-min flight) or Gold Coast for a cityscape, shopping trip, concert, international flight, medical specialist etc.
It's truly the best of both worlds where we are so fortunate to live at an affordable beachside haven that's still easily accessible to everything you could want!
What's Hervey Bay Like?
Hervey Bay is set on a beautiful protected coast line (part of the Wide Bay region) and has a winding 16km landscaped Esplanade right along the beachfront. The beaches are pristine and the ocean is calm with aqua water due to the unusual north facing direction. Plus it is protected by the world's largest sand island, K'gari (Fraser Island) which can be seen from the eastern areas.
Across from the beach on the other side of the Esplanade are tantalising restaurants and cafes, bars, shops and accommodation. The locals are laid-back and friendly, and things move nice and slow which is why its hard not to be relaxed in Hervey Bay.
Things To Do
Whether you prefer to relax and unwind, or be adventurous and active, or shop & socialise, Hervey Bay is a friendly and welcoming eco-destination with a laid-back lifestyle and plenty of Things To Do for everyone.

"The jet ski tour was a fantastic day! It is a superb showcase of the marine park and the Hervey Bay waterways. Stuart is an extremely professional guide and ensured every aspect of the trip was a great experience. We all loved it and will be back again."
