“A great hotel to relax after the bumpy tracks of Fraser Island”
Reviewed 8 March 2006

Having returned from Fraser Island, Hervey Bay acted as a one night stop over for my girlfriend and I. I opted for the Outrigger as I thought the rate of $110 for a room with a view and spa bath was very reasonable. Although there are a number of far cheaper options in Hervey Bay, the Outrigger lived up to its 4* status. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the facilities were great, including a well located swimming pool (try and get one of the rooms where you can step out of your balcony and into the pool!). We were due to get a train late in the evening after checking out and the staff arranged for us to use the facilities of the hotel that day, including the pool and showers and they gave us a pass to get into the complex. This was very accommodating. The only downside of the hotel is that it is not located on the main esplanade by the shops and restaurants (cost = AUD$14 to get to the main town in a taxi). The hotel does, however, have bicycles which can be hired providing a nice way to get into town along a seaside cycling track. At the marina, where the Outrigger is located, is an excellent café style restaurant which I would highly recommend offering food with great attention to detail and cheap.

After staying in some pretty dodgy places while travelling around Australia this place was absolute luxury! Room average sized with a nice bathroom and jacuzzi bath! Views across marina were great! Staff very helpful and friendly! Only criticism is that a couple of the restaurants shut at 8pm. The fish and chip takeaway shop was particularly good!

The views from units are great, looking over pool, marina, islands including Fraser Island. Best views are from units in Tower 2, overlooking the pool. Great for enjoying the winter sun in the morning on the balcony. Outrigger is located a few hundred metres away from the best club in Hervey Bay, 'the Boat Club'. There is always something to view from the balcony, whether its people having fun around the pool, boats coming and going, people strolling around the marina precinct or enjoying some of the open air cafe's/restaurants. Outrigger is the only absolute water front accommodation in Hervey Bay.

The Outrigger is situated in an excellent position right on the Marina at Hervey Bay. The boats leave for whale watching and Fraser Island here.
The rooms are large, we had a one bedroom apartment, bathroom with a spa bath and washer and dryer, kitchenette with dishwasher and full size fridge, microwave and two burner stove. There is a restaurant on site, and several close by. We had a relaxing time here.
