Top Things to do in Hervey Bay – By Land and By Sea!

Hervey Bay is one of the most spectacular coastlines in Australia that is absolutely teeming with marine life and is the ideal getaway destination for those looking to spend some adventure and excitement-filled days close to the coast but also want to be in the heights of comfort and luxury.


Visit Reefworld Aquarium

Visit Reefworld Aquarium while staying at a Hervey Bay hotel. It is one of the most family-friendly marine sanctuaries in the region. Reefworld is centred close to the bay and so is a completely natural aquarium. There are no aquatic shows and the animals are treated with respect and dignity. It is not large and overpriced so families can enjoy a truly organic experience which aims to educate and allows you to have close interactions with the animals. You can feed a shark or touch a turtle and the animals usually swim up on their own without being forced by the staff. There are also daily feeding sessions that children can take part in.


Ocean Therapies

Hervey Bay experiences focus heavily on ensuring that the visitor finds themselves at the very pinnacle of relaxation. So, places like Oaks Hervey Bay Resort and Spa offer pampering treatments such as ocean therapies that are conducted by skilled and knowledgeable masseuses. The therapies include Indian and Thai massages, aromatherapy and treatments for chronic ailments and sports injuries. There's a lot of attention that goes to the treatments offered at spas and they ensure that the healing power of the ocean is part of the therapy that is given. Be sure to book some spa treatments for you and your family members when you are there.


Hervey Bay Go Kart

Not everything in Hervey Bay has to be all about going slow and relaxing. If you head over to 245 Scrub Hill Road, Nikenbah you can try out some Go Karting. The Hervey Bay Go Kart Track has been in operation for over twenty years. There are various tracks for different driving levels so it will be a load of fun for everyone making it perfect for the whole family. Even if you are a first-timer you don't have to worry, there are tracks suited for learning how to kart without hurting yourself or others. There's also a waterslide where you can go cool off after a day of racing around in the hot sun.


Wetside Water Education Park

The WetSide Water Education Park is a combination of a hybrid water park and educational facility. Your kids can learn something new while cooling off. The park was part of the local authorities meeting the demands of people who visit Hervey Bay in an attempt to enjoy as much of the warm and sunny Queensland weather as possible. The attraction is completely free and is well-supervised by the staff, so you don't have to worry about bringing your kids over.
