My daughter has arranged to have two of my grandsons Birthday parties at Wetside and the children just love it! It keeps them occupied and happy and tires them out so Mum can put her feet up later. And its free!

What a wonderful way to spend a day. Most of the area is free to use, except for the pool where the kids surfed, but still reasonably priced and heaps of fun. There are cafes surrounding the area if you wish to dine or alternative there is heaps of room for a picnic. The only suggestion I would make is... More

Only in Hervey Bay have we ever seen something like this that is free to use. An amazing free attraction that all families would enjoy.

Amazing free water park right on the beach. Our 2yo loved it and I rather enjoyed it myself. A great free way to keep the kids entertained for an afternoon.

All sections are usable again now. Kids always have a ball. Been twice in 8 days. Would be nicer if the equipments areas were bigger though as there is always far more people concentrated into these two areas than the rest of the water spouty/fountain areas. Very lucky to have this place at Hervey Bay :)
