10 August - Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast, Qld

After some of the long drives we've completed on this trip it was a nice change this morning, leaving Bundaberg knowing we only had to travel 120km to our next destination - Hervey Bay. The weather just continues to be brilliant and when we pulled into the Fraser Lodge Tourist Park, it felt like we were coming home even though it has been about 7 years since we were last here. Apart from miles of glorious beaches and waterfront picnic and play areas, Hervey Bay is a very popular jumping off point for visits to Fraser Island, whale watching and deep sea fishing tours and even short flights to the Great Barrier Reef.

We spent this afternoon getting re-acquainted with the area. As we have visited Fraser Island on a number of occasions and experienced whale watching out of Airlie Beach we'll probably use our time here for relaxing and finding some good places to eat. We wound up the day in glorious fashion. Gourmet fish and chips and a bottle of Giesen Sauvignon Blanc on the beach watching the sunset - unbelievable. Will try to get more photos tomorrow - we are here for three nights.
