Hervey Bay, where Whales Play and Nature Comes Alive

Hervey Bay is a great destination for family holidays. With a temperate climate all year round, and the town and beaches sheltered in the lee of Fraser Island from the predominate winds and weather, the beaches are safe, sandy and swimmable nearly every day of the year. With miles and miles of meandering channels down the Great Sandy Straits, and 1500 sq miles of sheltered water in Platypus Bay, Hervey Bay is a fisherman and boaters paradise! We aim to identify the best Hervey Bay accommodation options for travellers.

Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge

166 Urraween Road, Hervey Bay
Ph: (07) 4124 5500


The Emeraldene Inn is a peaceful and relaxing eco resort, with only 14 rooms set amongst 2 acres of natural bushland and landscaped gardens. Located in the peaceful Pialba area of Hervey Bay, the motel is close to all the attractions of the Bay, yet far enough away from the busy Esplanade to feel like its own island Oasis!

The Emeraldene Inn is family owned and run, by Rob, Alan and Judy Lennon, who offer warm and helpful family  hospitality. From the moment you arrive, you will feel "at home" and comfortable, with quality local advice, tour bookings, and wonderfully clean and comfortable rooms.

All tours can be booked from the resort, with most operators offering free transfers direct from your door. Fraser Island, Whale Watching, Lady Elliot Island, fishing trips, horse riding, parachuting.... you name it, everything is catered for in Hervey Bay, and can be organised by Rob, Judy & Alan.

This property deservedly won the Queensland Tourism Awards in 2013, was a Finalist in the Australin Tourism Awards 2013, and won a TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Award 2014. It has consistently been rated in the top 3 Hervey Bay accommodation properties based upon customer reviews (TripAdvisor).


The facilities at the Emeraldene Inn are just what you'd expect from accommodation of this high calibre. A huge 12m pool is set amongst wonderfully shady trees, and surrounded by lush grass. Under lights at night, it is a great space for a family BBQ. The BBQ area, (also lit) is huge, with a new & massive 6 burner stainless steel BBQ. Rob will give you BBQ tools, and all rooms are equipped with a kitchenette and cutlery and crockery.

Whilst the resort does not have a restaurant on-site, there are numerous restaurants that will deliver meals direct to your room. The property has a continental-style breakfast available for order for $12pp. There is also a guest laundry available for use, and heaps of extra secure parking for anyone going to Fraser with trailers or boats. Guests can leave their vehicles at the property free of charge if they will be away on tours for more than 1 day.

The Deluxe Rooms are an oversized motel-style room, with a very comfortable queen & single bed, a 2 seater lounge, kitchenette, ensuite bathroom, and garden balcony. The rooms are equipped with fridge, toaster, microwave, tea/coffee facilities, and cutlery / crockery. There is air-con, DVD, TV, CD clock radio and ample storage / hanging space. The rooms are bright  and impeccably clean.

The newly renovated Superior Rooms are similar in layout to the Deluxe Rooms and in addition have flat screen wall mounted tv's, free water and plunger coffee, plush furnishings and an added sense of class and comfort. (Well worth the small extra charge!)

The Family Apartments are a 1 bedroom apartment with a queen bed in the bedroom, and a set of full size single bunk beds in the studio / living area. These rooms also have a full kitchen, large bathroom, and access to 2 balconies. Perfect for a family.

The property is the only accommodation in Hervey Bay with 2 purpose built Wheelchair Accessible Rooms - fully appointed and audited for wheelchair bound or less mobile guests. Adjoining carers rooms are available.
