Property Information:

Hervey Bay 29-30 November 2014, National Offshore SUPERBOAT Championships Round 6.

Colonial Village is situated only 50m’s from Urangan beach, and it is only 350m’s from Hervey Bay’s 7 kilometres 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 700m’s away with a Woolworths, Post Office and Pharmacy.

We have a free daily courtesy bus to and from the coach station (7am to 915pm).

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 Wi-Fi and PC use, free table tennis, darts, pool table, wii, bicycle hire, a children’s play area, large playing field, a large relaxing pond with fountain, hammocks, all surrounded by tree’s with a huge variety of resident and visiting birds, not to mention the tree frogs, sugar gliders, possums, and so on.

We have an all day bar and bistro, with day and evening menu’s, and breakfast is also available. We appeared in the ‘Fraser Coast Chronicle – July 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 ensuite 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 travelers can also leave their vehicles on site (max 3 days) as long as before their tour they book and pay to stay on return.

Our powered sites provide water and electricity ($32-$37), the site only comes in a block of 9 sites with plenty of space around including a large field surrounded by trees. Shared 24 hour access shower and kitchen facilities are available, as well as an alfresco hut (sink & prep).

With ample space we can accommodate for boats and large rigs.

We have a spacious unpowered site, with shaded and unshaded areas ($24 p/night). You can choose where on the site you would like to camp; and 24 hour access shared kitchen/TV and showers.

Dogs are allowed with campers only, at the managers’ discretion. They must never be left unattended or unleashed.

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, the staff where very friendly and helpful. The rooms where nice enough, a little dated and could have done with being refreshed but I liked having no bunk beds. The location wasn't the best, quite far from the main beach and the shops and if you wanted to go to the CBD you would need to get a bus, not walking distance. I didn't really think there was much atmosphere, most people kept themselves to themselves and didn't really mingle.
