"Bay Side is only side"

Choose anything close to the beach side and you can't miss. The western side is low and has cheap housing with many rentals so the community spirit doesn't seem the same. The eastern side catches all the lovely breezes and has easy access to the beach. Five to ten minutes from all facilities including restaurants, schools, shopping, medical and hospitals. Local convenience stores available. Close to golf club. Plenty of good sized blocks of 1000m2 plus.
Pros
  • Can see Fraser Island
  • Great breezes all year round
  • Housing is cheap at the moment
Cons
  • Could be too quiet for some

"The perfect sea change."

It is prefect for those looking for the sea change they deserve, There are some good quality houses for sale in this area at bargin prices that are close to beaches, boat ramps, schools, and all shopping centers. There is no hussle and bussle that you encounter through the Sunshine and Gold Coasts and there is also jet flights to Brisbane from the new airport located at the other end of the bay (so noise is not an issue. Point Vernon is part of Hervey Bay and where the whales play, It is also close to Fraiser Island. And the fishing is top class. There is a general layed back feel to the whole of Hervey Bay. I would recomend to those who are looking at the Gold and Sunshine Coasts to really consider Hervey Bay.
Pros
  • Cheep good quality houses
  • Briliant coastal lifestyle
  • the doorway to Fraiser island and the whales
