Hervey Bay is not only the gateway to Fraser Island, but is a fantastic destination in itself. Travellers are drawn to the seaside area to catch a glimpse of the Humpback Whales that come and frolic in the waters of the bay, or explore the largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island. Set right on the Hervey Bay Marina, Mantra Hervey Bay is the perfect choice for hotel when staying in the region. Spend some time relaxing poolside or treat yourself to a cocktail from the bar at the same time. Centrally located, guests can enjoy a stroll to neighbouring restaurants and nearby fashion boutiques and gift stores for great food and even better shopping.


With a choice of Hotel Room, 1 Bedroom, 2 Bedroom and 3 Bedroom Apartments, there is a room to suit every traveller. The 1 Bedroom Apartment offers that bit of extra space. Featuring a separate bedroom and dining area with a kitchenette, the room is a perfect choice for those who want a bit of luxury while being able to self-cater. The private balcony offers spectacular marina or ocean views, and the spa offers just the thing to relax after a day exploring the area.

Where to Eat

While there is no inhouse restaurant there are delicious dining options just metres away with many restaurants and cafes located on the Marina just outside the hotel gate. The nearby Hervey Bay Boat is open for lunch, dinner and Sunday breakfast buffets. There is a choice of casual family dining to modern Australian and international flavours, with many menus making the most of the fantastic fresh local seafood on offer.

What to Do

Hervey Bay is a peaceful and picturesque seaside town. It is best known for being the whale watching capital of Australia. The Urangan Marina offers whale watching tours, sunset cruises, sailing and day trips to fantastic places like Lady Elliot Island and the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island with its freshwater lakes and rainforest tracks. For those who just want to enjoy the mainland, there is shopping at a diverse range of boutiques and local markets.
