Water Sports in Hervey Bay

Operating from a prime spot on the Torquay foreshore, Aquavue hires out paddleboards and kayaks ($20 per hour) and jet skis ($50/150 per 15/60 minutes). A more involved option is a jet-ski tour across the Great Sandy Strait to explore Fraser Island's less-visited west cost, with lunch served at the delightful Aquavue Cafe on return ($450, 3½ hours).
