This was our second stay at Boat Harbour Resort, having previously stayed in 2011 - we liked both the resort and Hervey Bay so much that this was the first place we booked for our 2013 trip to Australia. The manager Robin is very friendly and helpful (including finding my daughter's lost cellphone after we had left and getting it back to us), and the units, while not looking very fancy from the outside, are very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Ours had a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, good cooker, microwave, toaster, etc - all the things that you really need for self-catering holidays, especially when touring around - and a garage. The resort is in a quiet spot, away from the main beaches (about a 5-minute drive to Urangan Pier, maybe 10 minutes to Torquay beaches and 15 minutes to Scarness). There's a small but nice beach just across the road, and it's a short walk to the harbour where you can go on the whale-watching tours for which Hervey Bay is famous. The nearest shopping centre is about a 5-minute drive away as well. There is a small pool, but with lots of lovely calm sea nearby we didn't use it much.
