Customer Travel Tip: Go to the pier for sunset and go for a whale watching trip out of Hervey bay, either before or after your Fraser island trip.

Liked: It's a very pretty, peaceful place to relax for a few days.

Disliked: The shops are quite far from hostels/ hotels, however there is apparently a good bus service which we did not use.

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you know how much you want to spend. If you don't want to take a tour, then skip Hervey Bay.

Liked: The hostel.

Disliked: The only thing you can do is whale watching (minimum of 100 dollars for a day) or take a trip to Hervey Bay. One day trip was bad, and the price for 2 days was at least 300 dollars, which is too much for a budget traveller. Other than that Hervey Bay is boring.
