Australia Day in Hervey Bay is HUGE!!! This small beach side town becomes a buzz of people music food and families!! With so many activities planned for the day have a look at the Council’s webpage for details. Click Here. Scarness Beach is the place to be but anywhere along the Esplanade is perfect. There is also Fraser Island to visit and plenty of camping grounds in and around the Esplanade to visit too if you want to stay on the mainland. Have a wonderful time and stay safe.
