Hervey Bay also has a relatively low cost of living when compared to the bigger cities. It has a very relaxed feel to it and is a very friendly town. It has plenty of very good schools and is a great place to raise a family.
Hervey Bay is the stepping off point to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, the location of some of the world’s best whale watching encounters … and it has arguably the safest, family-friendly beaches on the Queensland coast.
