HERVEY BAY - ATTRACTIONS
Hervey Bay's Dayman Point offers sweeping views of the Great Sandy Strait, family picnic facilities and memorials to early explorers Matthew Flinders and Joseph Dayman, and to the men of "Z" force who trained on Fraser Island Australia for a daring World War operation in Singapore.
The Korrawinga Monument, dedicated to the Aboriginal people of Hervey Bay and Fraser Island, is a symbol of hope for the future unity of all peoples of the Hervey Bay area.
Hervey Bay's attractions include a shark show, aquarium, shell display, wildlife park, arts and crafts, historical and mining museums, restored colonial homes, a waterslide and natural attractions.
To experience the early settlement of Hervey Bay and Fraser Island, visit the Hervey Bay Historical Museum at Scarness or hire a boat and explore Woody Island National Park, halfway between Urangan (Hervey Bay) and Fraser Island, with its disused lighthouse and graves.
by Fraser Island, Hervey Bay is an ideal spot for diving, with coral
reefs and sunken ships teeming with fish life providing lots of interest.
For non-divers Neptune's Coral Cave Aquarium, or Vic Hislop's Shark Show, both at Urangan, offer different perspectives on the Great Barrier Reef and its fascinating marine life.
