About YHA Hervey Bay

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.
