About YHA Colonial village & Camping & Tours

Colonial Village is situated only 50 metres from Urangan beach, and it is only 350 metres from Hervey Bays 10 kilometers of unspoilt beaches, and the 850m long Urangan pier, which is wonderful for fishing. The all year round perfect climate with cool refreshing sea breeze is great for fishing, swimming and water sports. On our doorstep is the Marina/harbour with a range of cafes, galleries, shops and restaurants, also a boat club with daily entertainment. Urangan Central plaza is 700 metres away with a Woolworth's, Post Office and Pharmacy. We have a free daily courtesy bus to and from the coach station (7am to 915pm) contact us for pick up times.

We offer 8 acres of peaceful botanical grounds that are out of earshot of traffic, of which only 3 acres are for accommodation. We offer a decent sized swimming pool with a shallow beach end, a spa, 2 free tennis courts, free basketball, free WiFi and PC use, free table tennis, darts, pool table, WiFi, bicycle hire, a childrens play area, large playing field, a large relaxing pond with fountain, hammocks, all surrounded by trees with a huge variety of resident and visiting birds, not to mention the tree frogs, sugar gliders, possums, and so on and so on.

We have an all day bar and bistro, with day and evening menus, specials and breakfast is also available. We appeared in the Fraser Coast Chronicle (newspaper) 2014 'Venues that scored a thumbs up for pub meals..'

We offer 24 hour access to the shared self catering cooking facilities/TV room and showers/washing.

All accommodation and the whole site are at ground level with no stairs. 1 of the en suite double rooms has a special access shower/toilet. There is a special access toilet in the bistro also, as well as a spacious non-partitioned toilet/shower by the swimming pool.

Being so close to the marina makes us the perfect location for catching the tour boats for the best Whale watching experience Australia has to offer, and to a great extent the world. Hervey Bay is also by far the best departure point for a World Heritage Fraser Island experience; other locations are not located near to the Fraser action, so from Hervey bay you don't waste a day of your 4wd adventure travelling. Fraser Island, Whale Watching (July - Nov), Whitsundays and Lady Elliot tours can all be booked through our independent booking office with courtesy pickups.

Lockers are available for a one off fee of $10, these can also be used for guests to store luggage whilst on tour.

Cars, vans or motor homes can be left on-site while guests go on tour with all tours booked through our office; other travellers can also leave their vehicles on site (max 3 days) as long as before their tour they book and pay to stay on return.
