If you have ever dreamed of living in a beautiful beach side location, which is safe and friendly place to bring up your children, Hervey Bay could be exactly what you have been looking for.
Our family moved from Sydney to Hervey Bay twenty years ago. We wanted to bring up our f0ur children in a safe and beautiful location and give them the wonderful childhood they deserved. Hervey Bay made our dreams come true, our children enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle in a beautiful location and undertook quality education through primary, secondary and university education. We were blessed to have found Hervey Bay and bringing our children up in this beautiful town, was the best decision we ever made.
