General overview

BEACH LIVING AT ITS BEST! We are just 1.4kms from the beach and there is a wonderful magnesium pool for a quick dip too! Our home is secure and private and cooled by ocean breezes ... lots of surprises too! The modern kitchen/entertaining area overlooks the pool and the fully screened al fresco dining area by the pool. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and opens directly into the screened outdoor room. The second bedroom also has a queen bed and bedroom 3 has one large king single bed . The bathrooms are both very roomy and light filled.

The space

The spacious, modern kitchen/living/dining area is a fully functional and attractive space. The kitchen opens into a screened outdoor room next to the swimming pool which is securely fenced with child lock gates. The front garden is an ongoing project as I have just moved in November 2023! Cooling ocean breezes and birdsong abound and it is just a delightful spot to chill or venture out from.

Guest access

The property is completely flat and is all on one level.

Notes

Hervey Bay has an airport. Flights connect to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane ! You are very welcome to our home! We look forward to visiting yours too ... and it doesn’t need to be fancy either! We just need 3 beds and somewhere different or interesting so please say hi 👋

Neighbourhood

If you can pull yourself away from the pool, the beach, the Esplanade with its cafes, ice-cream shops (70 flavours!) the pubs, clubs, water parks, etc ..there’s plenty more to see and do! Hervey Bay is surrounded by state forests, walking trails and wildlife. Nearby, (1/2 hour) in historic Maryborough you can interact with kangaroos and dingoes as well as cuddly koalas at the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary. Humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to the sub-tropical coastal waters to give birth and mate and are best seen b/n mid July and mid October. Each year at least 1200 humpbacks migrate 5000km to the eastern coast of Australia. Hervey Bay becomes a whale nursery as the mothers with their babies choose to rest there for 2-3 months every year during the annual migration. Hervey Bay is also known for its easy access to beautiful Fraser Island which guards Hervey Bay from inclement weather. It is just 15 kms, a 50 minute ferry ride from the coast. Fraser Island's World Heritage listing ranks it with Australia's Uluru, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef. The Mon Repos Turtle rookeries (1 1/2 hours) are a definite must see. Every year, from November to March, you can join QPWS Rangers at Mon Repos Turtle Centre. You can join a guided tour to watch the turtles laying their eggs in nesting season from November to January. Or visit during the hatching season of the marine turtles which is b/n January and March when the sight of hundreds of tiny turtles struggling to the ocean is unforgettable. In a little over an hour you can drive to Tin Can Bay. It’s a beautiful spot to have breakfast after getting into the water to help feed the dolphins! Rainbow beach is renowned for its coloured sand, beach drives and good swimmming and is a pleasant 1 1/2 hour drive. The world famous Eumundi markets are renowned for its locally made artisan treasures, there’s no other market quite like it. Another ‘must visit’ along with nearby Noosa ... 2 hours drive. When you’re in the vicinity also visit The Kennilworth state forest and experience the fig tree walk and maybe spot a platypus. There are also some great waterfalls in the area. Agnes Waters and the town called 1770 is a longer but rewarding day drive or you could stay or camp overnight. In the same area is Conondale National Park, Sunshine Coast Hinterland which is a 2 1/2 drive from Hervey Bay. Tucked away in this incredible park, the top section of the beautiful two-part waterfall at Booloumba Falls provides a paradisiacal backdrop to a series of crystal clear pools.

Getting to my home

After flying into Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane airport you would catch an airplane to Hervey Bay or catch the tilt train or hire a car. If we’re not around to pick you up the taxi ride from Hervey Bay airport is a quick 20 minute trip.

Nearest airport

The Hervey Bay airport is 15 km from my home a quick 20 minute drive.

Getting around

The property is 1400 mtrs (10 minute walk) to a great swimming beach. The Esplanade runs parallel to the coastline and is lined with eateries of all kinds from ice-cream parlours, (70 flavours!) coffee shops, cafés, pubs, clubs and every restaurant imaginable. There is also a bus route along The Esplanade. Hire cars start at $30 a day and can be hired on the esplanade. Bicycles are also available for hire. Many of the clubs also offer a courtesy bus too.
