Hervey Bay – paradise found!

December 3, 2017 by Woolshed Backpackers

Say hello to your new bloggers at the Woolshed backpackers – Maja and Andy! We traveled up and down the east coast until we found Hervey bay and decided to stay around for a while 🙂

Our personal little paradise – the AWESOME beach – is just a five minute walk from the hostel. As you can see it´s nowhere near as crowded as the guidebook-beaches you´ve probably already visited – if lucky, you have it all to yourself!

The beach in Hervey bay, where you can walk for hours. Its 16 km long!
Hello there little coconut! Look like you traveled far…

 

Hervey bay is a tropical little pearl and a gateway to Fraser Island, with a 16 km (!) long beach, heaps of flying foxes and wild kangaroos hanging out on the fields next door. The waters are perfect for kayaking or SUP-yoga and there´s even a little reef just outside the beach.

Wanna have a closer look?  Follow The Woolshed Backpackers here or on Instagram/Facebook – we´ll tell you all about it!
