About Hervey Bay
A city located in southern Queensland, Hervey Bay is known for its stunning coastline, humpback whales and proximity to Fraser Island. It’s got the best of both worlds – not only does it offer breath taking natural landscapes like its white sand beaches, it also has a fun town that’s full of backpacker-friendly pubs and restaurants. This city is one for your bucket list!

You’ll find Hervey Bay hostels with pools and games rooms to mingle in; the perfect way to make new mates in between your adventures around the city that’ll last far beyond check out. We’ve got a diverse range of hostels offering both private and dorm room options. From Aussie-modern to budget-friendly hostels, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect Hervey Bay hostel for you.
Staying in the centre of Hervey Bay will allow you to be the closest to this small city’s attractions, such as its pubs and restaurants – the best places for solo travellers to meet and hang out with other backpackers. If you’re more about that sea air in your lungs, choose a hostel close to the seafront and you’ll be able to get from bed to bunk in minutes. Speaking of which, if you’re a beach bum it doesn’t get much better than Fraser Island. This stunning island can be reached easily by boat from the pier at Rivers Head – consider staying here a night for a total change of pace.
Travellers from all around visit Hervey Bay to hop on board a sea vessel and venture out to spend time with the friendly humpback and we think you should too! If you’re making a trip especially for this tour, make sure to visit between July and October. The stunning Fraser Island is only 20 minutes away, just hop on a ferry or barge and you’ll be in beach paradise in no time. Those who love seeking adventure, you can even skydive on Fraser Island. A walk along Urangan Pier should also be on your list, plus a bike ride along the esplanade.
Thanks to its size, Hervey Bay is fairly easy to navigate. You’ll find pretty much everything you ‘need’ close to each other making walking and exploring the town on foot a breeze. Not a fan of walking? No worries, hire a bike or scooter and zoom through the town. There are regular bus services available as well as taxis and Ubers. Renting a car is a nice way to explore Hervey Bay’s surroundings in your own time.
