Hervey Bay Beaches
Our Hervey Bay beaches are an awesome source for family fun! Not only picturesque swimming locations but also great spots to play family beach games……from Fraser Island, Urangan, Torquay, Scarness, Pialba and Point Vernaon, to Burrum Heads, Toogoom and Dundowran there are so many to choose from.
We love going to the beach prepared for games beyond swimming and building sandcastles. We find this the perfect recipe for the whole family to enjoy a great day out! Take a look at our ideas:
dig a channel, make a dam or dig a hole
make a sand sculpture
search for driftwood, shells, seaweed or crabs
look for shells with holes to make a necklace
build a boat or car in the sand big enough to sit in, great for pretend play
draw pictures in the sand
build a “Sand” Man
play beach golf, volleyball, cricket, bowls or soccer
throw a frisbee
kick or throw a ball
fly a kite
play hide and seek or tiggy
take a walk
ride bikes, scooters or skate along the beach paths
There is so much fun to be had at our Hervey Bay beaches. Why not get together with friends or family this weekend and enjoy one of these great places right here in our own backyard!
