We are travelling with a camper trailer and wanted somewhere to camp away from the caravan crowd. This place is a find. The camping area is shady with some grass. No sites, just find a spot. Mainly backpacker vans as this is YHA establishment. The bar and bistro are a nice spot to relax with cheap beers and food. Great... More

We arrived after reception hours and followed our instructions to get our key. We were greeted with a less than friendly reception staff member who was just locking up and despite us reassuring her that we knew that we were after hours insisted on taking us (grumpily) through the check in process. The bistro staff were very obliging in making... More

We booked here as another close by van park was full, not disappointed though as that looked very crowded. This is a YHA that has powered (8 sites only) plus non powered on a large block of land, plus many cabin types. We booked a powered site which was fine for our motorhome. The checkin was slow due one staff... More

Wow .... it is a YHA, motel, campground and caravan park. Friendly efficient check in, loads of tour information for Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. There is also a bar / bistro on site. I was given a 'free drink' voucher .... ? maybe because I was a YHA member ?? Meals in the bistro were ? $10 to $14... More

This is a superb YHA and very professionally run. High standards of cleanliness, relaxing rest areas, well maintained grounds. Camping ground is great, kitchen, showers and TV area as comfortable as home.

After looking at the list of van parks in Hervey Bay and their prices we were delighted to find this place. They have their prices advertised outside as you drive past- $24 for an unpowered site. We paid $20 as there was a June off peak special on. What a brilliant place to stay- so much better than the van... More

We booked here for just one nights stop over between work and found it to be the most beautiful place! The grounds are amazing - so much space with a gorgeous lake outside the bistro area. Ducks, chickens and even Peacocks roaming free! Not what we expected to see! There is a pool and spa just outside the bistro, and... More

I absolutly loved my stay here. It is a little in the middle of no where with a 20-30min walk to the nearest supermarket, but it is only a 10min walk to the beach which is perfect for fishing, the hostel also offer a free shuttle service that will pick you up from the Coach station. There is a harbour... More
