Hervey Bay YHA

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

This multi-award winning hostel in the seaside town of Hervey Bay is conveniently located within an easy walk of nearby beaches. 

Hervey Bay might be small in stature but it’s big on traveller experiences with the world heritage Fraser Island on its doorstep and migrating Humpback Whales on its shoreline each year. Check out all the best things to do during your stay HERE.
