When we arrived in Hervey Bay, late in the afternoon, we were surprised how quite it was with plenty of accommodation available even though it was the Christmas school holidays. In the winter it gets very busy and it is necessary to book accommodation and powered sites in advance.
After settling in to our accommodation we headed to the Esplanade for some fish and chips. It is very pleasant to sit on a picnic table with views of the ocean and one of several small piers along the waterfront.
We were pleased to see a number of Cockatiels come in to roost as the light was fading.
One of the many nice things about Hervey Bay is taking a stroll along the beach as the sun sets.
On our walk to historic Urangan Pier we saw a gecko and a Rhinoceros Beetle.
