We picked up my brother from the airport and passed through Brisbane on the way up to Hervey Bay. It is Australia’s third largest city, and is also known for the high-rises and casinos. As we only passed through, we didn’t get to see too much and what we did seemed similar to what we’ve done already.
Hervey Bay itself is either a very popular place for spotting migrating whales or a launching pad to get to Fraser Island. Although we used it for the latter, it still has some pretty spectacular beaches, which the local retirees came to see a long time ago and ended up staying for.

But to be honest we didn’t spend too much time on the beach during the one day we were here due to the fact we decided to stay in an apartment on the beach and make use of the tennis courts etc. that they had to offer. Well that was the plan but we spent most of the day on the balcony/garden enjoying the sun (and a few drinks). We booked our trip to Fraser for the following day.
