Where should I stay in Hervey Bay in a caravan park?

Most Hervey Bay caravan parks are within 15 minutes of each other, which means you're spoilt for choice when it comes to staying in a central location. If you're keen for some beach time, opt for a park closer to The Esplanade, but if you'd like a bit more peace and quiet, then aim for one more in the suburban areas.

How long can I stay in a caravan park in Hervey Bay?

Some parks will allow you to stay long term if you need, including for periods up to a year with advance booking.

What should I consider when choosing a caravan park in Hervey Bay?

For longer trips away, look for a park with well-stocked laundry facilities and check for an on-site convenience store or kiosk, so you don't have to drive for supplies.

Families travelling together should keep an eye out for a variety of age-appropriate activities, including bouncing pillows and playgrounds for the younger ones, and a games room or recreation area for the older kids.

Summers can get hot and humid, so if you're visiting from November to March, a swimming pool can help keep you cool.

Where can I park a campervan overnight in Hervey Bay?

Many areas in Hervey Bay have marked parking bays that are time limited, which means vehicles should not be parked for longer than the time permitted as penalties may apply. Your best bet to avoid hefty fines is to park in a caravan park where you'll find all the amenities you need, including bathrooms and power.
