There is also a great wave pool for all different ages. Jump on a board and ride haha. Nice relaxing atmosphere and a... More

The kids will love the it has enough activities to entertain from babes to the adult that would like to cool down a bit. We go every time we have out of owners visit and always enjoy it.

Can you believe this is free?!! What an awesome thing for the kids to do but the chlorine is killer ... just walking past my eyes started burning ... it stunk. Great location though and awesome idea. Need more stuff like this for the kids.

Thank you for your 5 star review! We greatly appreciate it! We take our water quality very seriously and have laboratory tests carried out weekly. Not sure why it smelled when you where here or why your eyes started burning, we've not noticed any issues ourselves nor had any other complaints. Please feel free to discuss any issues you may...

I haven,t used it myself but I see the children and older having a great time in the water on these very hot days everything is there for the parents to enjoy watching the family safely while having something to eat and looking at the Bay . Great spot to cool off just wish that I had young grandies.

Great for kids of all ages, even those in nappies!! Mums and dads can enjoy some fish and chips or a cuppa too which is great. Not a lot of shade so bring sunscreen but a wonderful day out.

Stumbled upon it almost by mistake and loved the people friendly atmosphere, attention to detail and safety aspect for everyone. Age range from toddlers to Silver Surfers this is a great attraction.

This is a great set up for Hervey Bay and alot of places should take note. The kids loved it though the water was freezing but nevertheless a good spot just to get them out of the unit for a couple of hours. There is a cafe attached and a water ski machine aright next door which seemed very popular.... More

As can be seen from my photos, Wet Side Water Park at Hervey Bay is a free fun place for children. It has water slides, giant showers, water jets, and models of sea creatures. On Friday evenings there is lights show. Next to this attraction there is a food and drinks place, a boardwalk and Wave Rider (See separate review).
