Hervey Bay

We have been on the road Travelling for such a long time without power so I have over 600 photos to sort through, many places that I can’t remember where we have been to and to be honest I am lost at where to begin! Blogging is second nature for me because I have been blogging for four years, its been a month since we have been without our Motorhome, and a month of travelling without blogging as much as I normally do.

From Bundaberg we pulled into Toogoom for a brief visit, then continued on our way, pulling into Hervey Bay for the night.

After a quick stop at Toogoom we continued on down to Hervey Bay – stopping for a long walk on Urangan Pier, dinner and then finding a place to sleep over night.

PAID WATER FILTER SYSTEM

Before we walked on the Pier we went in search for a place to re-fill up our Water Bottles. We came across this Paid Water System – having to pay for water was a first for us, never heard of one before! Since I posted this on our Facebook Page our friends have let us know that there are more paid Water Filter System in Australia.

Down in Darling Harbour, and Circular Quay there are Free Filtered Water Taps every where. Even Taronga Zoo has free Filtered Water to re-fill bottles.

DAVID READING ABOUT THE PIER

The Pier used to be about 1,100 meters long when the Council started to pull it down, the local people protested – and won, saving the last 880 meters.

Night Time

CAMERON WANTED TO LEAVE BUT KEPT ON WALKING

Cameron doesn’t like the Night Time. He wanted to return to our Camper van but he stayed with us, walking most of the way across the Pier.

HE SMILES SAYS IT ALL

Kyle loves adventures, loves fishing and loves exploring. We are so very lucky to be able to show him Australia 🙂

Our over night stop at Hervey Bay was in a Car Park, next to the Beach, near a Playground with Toilets and Showers. When we woke up in the Morning we realised that we were under a Bat Colony! Shame the Bats don’t eat Mosquitoes – we had left our sliding door open as well as our back door to let the cool breeze in, but the Mosquitoes also came in!

WE PARKED NEXT TO THIS MONUMENT

When we woke up in the Morning we seen that we were parked next to this Monument which was dedicated to the Past, present and future members of Aboriginal Tribes in the Wide Bay area.

WAKING UP TO THIS BEACH WAS AMAZING

We couldn’t stay to explore more of Hervey Bay, we had to leave to head to Rainbow Beach! We loved our short time there, but not sure when we will return.

Have You Been To Hervey Bay?

Cheers
