Hervey Bay Accommodation


Hervey Bay accommodation used to be pretty much a camping ground/caravan park kind of affair. These days though Hervey Bay has matured into a wonderful tourist destination.

Hervey Bay accommodation is now available to suit all tastes and budgets.

Hervey Bay accommodation includes:

Back Packers for the young and young and heart,

Numerous holiday homes available 24/7, starting low and well you decide your budget,

Caravan and Tent sites at the numerous Camping Grounds dotted around Hervey Bay; and

Motels, Hotels, and Resorts that cater to all needs and levels of luxury.

There is always a place to lay your head, whether you intend to stay for one night or for many. Fortunately, even with the rapid appreciation of land values, the Fraser Coast regional Council remains committed to maintaining camp grounds along the waterfront. This is a valuable and responsible policy that ensures that all Australians and lucky tourists have access to a reasonably priced holiday at prime locations along the Queensland Coast.

As a recent arrival to Hervey Bay – as many of the residents here are, it is interesting to quiz new locals on how they spent their first days getting established and whether they initially used Hervey Bay Accommodation tailored to the holiday maker.

It seems that many new arrivals organised accommodation at the camp grounds for stays up to six weeks while they searched for rental and other permanent housing. These types had often already had a holiday or two here and decided they loved the location so much that they would make the permanent move North (or South).

Others, like ourselves, who were relocating from abroad booked a holiday rental, as having not been to Hervey Bay we had no mental image of the lay out or facilities. At least with a holiday home you can get a feel for the property from it's booking site.

We used the Roamfree site as it has a good selection of Holiday Rentals. We could have selected a Motel/Hotel but as we were looking at a five week period between arriving and finding permanent accommodation the Holiday Home option was more budget friendly.

In the five years that we have lived here we have seen two large and luxurious resorts completed and opened. The Allegra and Peppers. Both these resorts have been built to meet the exacting standards of the top end 5 Star tourist market. Many of the apartments are owner occupied while others are let on a short stay bases.
