Queensland Explore Centre - Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay Visitor Information Centre

The Central Queensland Highlands Visitor Information Centre is the ideal launching pad for anyone to Explore More of the region. Our friendly and knowledgeable team can help with advice, bookings and itineraries, and we’re well-stocked with brochures, maps and souvenirs.
The building’s walls are made from barely straw bales, covered in lime and earthen renders. An Eastern Bearded Dragon sculpture, made from recycled farm equipment, welcomes visitors at the centre’s entrance.
The centre sits in a shady spot at the foot of Moreton Park – home to a giant replica van Gogh Sunflower painting and the Centenary of Federation Mosaic Pathway.
