Scarness Beachfront Tourist Park - Scarness, Hervey Bay

Click here for park details on My Park List
Follow Boat Harbour Drive and turn left at the traffic lights at Denmans Camp Rd. When you reach the stop sign go straight ahead (slight hook) to the continuation of Denmans Camp Road to the T intersection of the Esplanade. Turn left onto the Esplanade and the park is on the right hand side almost immediately. The entrance can easily be missed. OR Take Queens Road off the main road into Hervey Bay and then right onto the Esplanade, which runs along the waterfront. Go past the pub and look for the entrance on the left hand side (eastern side). Ph: 07 4128 1274. No pets allowed.

Great site is 30/31 - ocean views uninterrupted and a picnic table right out front for breakfast watching the sunrise. Sites adequate size for a 22' van, amenities at the southern end a little old but very clean, huge showers and great hot water. Unusual they don't allow you to ride your bike inside the park, it was a 250m walk from our site to the front entrance with a bike. Powered site $50/night, 2A. We will be back.

Council ownership probably explains the perfect location of this park. it's long and thin with beach on one side and the shopping street on the other. At $41 per night its not bargain basement but why should it be when it is constantly full in this season?
Friendly staff. Good value for money $41 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is very good, soap provided, dry change area, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Inadequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic camp kitchen, dump point, van parking. Quiet, open & roomy park, no permanent/annual vans. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe.
Liked:- Great location.
Parking:- Drive in, curve right and obey the sign.
Local Information:- Any day trip to Frazer Island is good. "Frazer Experience" is more personal with a smaller tour group.

Spent 4 nights at this park with an ocean view site - looking out over Wide Bay was great. The park is very popular so book early. Amenities are adequate but may fall short in peak times. Bird droppings onto cars and van were a problem so people have awning protectors set up and we can see why. Easy walk to shops and eateries (Beach Hotel is a good spot). Whale watching is prime time, fishing charter we went on resulted in no take home fish. We will be back in non prime time.
