    • YHA is an asset of Hervey Bay. They have beautiful grounds with different types of accommodation to cater for all budgets. The staff were very accommodating and expressed good, old fashioned hospitality which relaxed us as soon as we booked in. Would absolutely stay again and have already started planning our next trip. Thank you, YHA, for putting up with us! We will be back!
