Goldmine inside Hervey Bay oasis
BIG4 Hervey Bay Holiday Park

The BIG4 Hervey Bay Holiday Park is just 200m from a sparkling blue ocean, and is a popular, tranquil oasis full of lush palms and wildlife.

Money seems to grow on trees there too, with the property earning a $589,692 profit for the last financial year.

Lindsay Cooper, from Ward Commercial Hotels, has been visiting the property for 17 years and says it now offers a rare opportunity for a savvy investor to acquire a freehold caravan park in one of Queensland's most fabulous holiday destinations.

The property has more than 80 licenced sites including pet friendly cabins, powered slabs and powered camp sites.

“It also comes with a lovely spacious modern home,” Mr Cooper said, “and there is also a separate building that the owners have been using as a private gym, but which could also be used as additional rental accommodation.

“The property has been beautifully maintained over seven years by the current owners and has shown consistent year on year growth. It is also a member of the prestigious Big 4 Group of Holiday Parks.”

Mr Cooper said the Hervey Bay property, on sale for $6,555,000, could be easily run by a couple.

“The current owners had initially run the property as a two-person team,” Mr Cooper said, “but as their children got older, they wanted to spend more time with them, and they have since employed staff.

“But really, it is an easy property for two people to run.”

The Big4 Hervey Bay has a saltwater swimming pool and a toddler’s pool, as well as barbecue areas, a games room, TV and movies room, a kids’ playground and laundries with washing machines and driers.

Hervey Bay is a three-and-a-half-hour drive north of Brisbane and the gateway to the world heritage-listed Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island that is home to unique and fascinating flora and fauna. 

Humpback whales, and whale watching cruises, are huge tourist drawcards in Hervey Bay while its mild climate attracts tourists all year round.

Hervey Bay also has golden beaches stretching for 14 kilometres and an abundance of first-class restaurants and coffee shops.

The historic Urangan Pier, more than 100 years old, is one of the longest piers in Australia, stretching a kilometre out into the sea, and it offers stunning views of the tourist haven and wonderful opportunities to see the local marine life. 

Another recent addition to the area’s long list of attractions is Australia’s newest dive wreck, the ex-HMAS Tobruk with lies on the ocean floor just north of Hervey Bay. 

Dive tours to the wreckage, now home to a vast array of marine creatures, leave from Hervey Bay’s Boat Harbour Drive.

The city of 50,000 people was first populated by the Batjala people including the Kabi Kabi, while the first recorded European sighting of Hervey Bay was made by James Cook on his ship Endeavour in 1770. Cook named the area “Hervey's Bay” after Augustus John Hervey, who became a Lord of the Admiralty.
