Point Vernon is an oceanfront town located in Hervey Bay, almost 300 kilometers north of Brisbane. This part of Queensland has a reputation for long stretches of beautiful beaches, snorkeling, and a scenic coastal walkway. If you’re looking for a place to relax in a holiday rental with ocean views, check out the options available in Point Vernon.

Why Point Vernon?

Some destinations set the scene for a true getaway, and Point Vernon is one of them. Choose local holiday rentals for a property that delivers peace and quiet in addition to lots of amenities. Wake up and you will see the ocean from the kitchen of your rental while preparing breakfast. In addition to extra space, amenities might include barbeques, private outdoor space, and access to boat ramps.

What To See And Do?

The beaches of Point Vernon are a major local highlight. Just off the shoreline there is a coral reef that is perfect for spending some time snorkeling. If you’re interested in the local wildlife, you might also want to visit the local turtle hatchery or venture to Gatakers Bay for some fishing.

Another big attraction to the area is a coastal walkway that stretches for 13 kilometers. Here you can spend time walking, cycling, or running. There is also another trail, located slightly inland on a former railway line. In addition to these walkways, there are also many picnic spots with free barbeques.

In addition to spending time sunbathing on the beach, many visitors also choose to spend time boating. Whether you want to fish, learn to sail, or simply head out on a sunset cruise with a bottle of cold white wine, there are many excuses in Point Vernon to get out on the water. If you would rather admire the views, there is an excellent restaurant, Gatakers, overlooking the bay.

Top Local Attractions

Many visitors choose not to venture too far from their Point Vernon holiday rentals. That’s the purpose of this type of holiday, to read a good book in the hammock or cook your just-caught fish outdoors on the barbeque. There are however a few nearby places that are worth exploring, including Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island.

Another big reason people choose Hervey Bay accommodation is the fact that this area is the whale watching capital of Australia. Each year between April and October humpback whales migrate along the coast. The bay is also a resting place for humpback whale moms and calves. During a visit, be sure to sign up for a whale watching expedition.

Why Rentals?

Visitors will have several choices for Point Vernon accommodation, but rentals offer the most space and amenities. Extra space is particularly appreciated on a beach vacation that often includes lazy days and quiet evenings. In your “home away from home” all family members will be able to spread out and relax. Plan a family movie night, throw an evening barbeque, or sit out under the stars in your own private holiday rental.
