Hervey Bay/need accom- Fraser Island

Hello, we are a couple in our 50's have 3 days to spend between Brisbane and Caloundra. We are looking to stay at Hervey Bay and do Fraser Island day trip. Do you think we should stay in Hervey Bay or other place? Budget - medium, not looking into expensive accommodation/trip. We will hire a car in Brisbane. Any suggestion for accommodation, tour, side trip is much appreciated? Many thanks.

Hi,

You can access Fraser from Rainbow Beach or Hervey Bay.

We prefer Rainbow Beach but it's much smaller than Hervey Bay. The sandies are amazing in many Hervey Bay locations.

Cheers,

Rainbow Beach is gorgeous but it's a lot smaller than Hervey Bay and not as much accommodation wise.

Depending on when you're travelling Hervey Bay has many budget options. Bearing in mind what one person's budget may not be anothers, you can pick up a cheap and cheerful motel option for around $100 per night. That's what I paid back in August, but it will be more over the summer period.
