We stayed for 2 nights in a family villa in late May and had a very enjoyable stay. I never tired of sitting outside overlooking the lake and watching the birds. What a view! Will be coming back when the whale cruises start again.

Room Tip: For great meals at a reasonable price try the Boat Club ab the marina. We ate there both nights and were very pleased with the value for money and the service.

The grounds are beautiful - the lake abounds with turtles or is it tortoises and bird life. The rooms are good for a short stay, the kitchenette is basic but is equipped with the essentials. The cabins are great overlooking the lake. Sharing a coffee and sunrise with the birds is special. Great location close to beach and bike path.

We were looking for somewhere in Hervey Bay for an overnight stay and found this one at a very reasonable price. After staying in several places over our time in Australia it was here we wished we'd stayed longer.
Brad (the owner) greeted us on arrival and was so helpful as to what to do during our stay. Kindly gave us duck food to take advantage of the friendly onsite birds.
Cabin itself was great. Very clean and a great position looking over the lake.
Site is 5 minute walk to the beachfront.
Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of a quiet and relaxing time away. Wish we'd bave stayed longer.

This is a special and excellent place to stay, good for all seniors,families and children. Cabins are somewhat dated but comfortable with good bathrooms, kitchenette areas and small balconys each close to the lagoon. Feeding the ducks and birds is great. management is excellent, helpful and welcoming. the mosquitos were not apparent at the time of our visit but could be a real problem if the lake was low etc.

Room Tip: take plenty of mozzie repellent or ring to check before booking

Very peaceful, clean spacious cabins with everything you need, fabulous staff, ducks and birds to feed off your balcony. Within walking distance to beach, esplanade, woolworths and botanic gardens. I travel frequently with work, this was one of the best places I've stayed at a really good price.
