Feel in need of a tranquil beach and a gorgeous sunset? This is Hervey Bay. One of my favourite places to watch a sunset. Extra special to get gorgeous sunsets over water on the east coast.
I arrived at the beach a little frazzled after towing a caravan through suburbs of peak hour traffic. What had begun as tranquil seaside villages has grown into a busy community of 52,000 people, last time I checked. The fourteen kilometres of exquisite beach and the peaceful waters of the bay, ideal for reflecting the sunset, made the visit to Hervey Bay worthwhile. If you are visiting as a tourist, I'd suggest avoiding the peak hour traffic.
Hervey Bay is three hours drive north of Brisbane.
