Hi All did a trip up to Hervey Bay on june july week off.Stayed at pialba caravan park for the week and had a good time with the family.We did a few day trips to have a look at bundy,woodgate and burrum heads.Our site was right on the water and was very nice, park was clean and well looked after and every body was very helpful and friendly.

Bad news I'm afraid here Gypsy.....




In the relaxed tropical setting of Pialba Beachfront Caravan Park, you’ll find the perfect family retreat.

That's a bugga Rosco....definitely off my list too.

I know this one is pet friendly but thought it would not hurt to have a choice.... http://www.palmsherveybay.com.au/
