What people are saying:

During our self-driving journey from Sydney to the Gold Coast, we lived in this small town for a night. It was less than 17 o'clock when I arrived, the town was not very populated, and the town center was quite lively. The place where we live is close to the seaside park, clean and tidy green grass, unknown seabirds swim in the water, and yachts in the distance berth and swing with the wind. The stones on the bank are full of graffiti, and the car camp is full of vacation vehicles. We not only saw the beautiful sunset, but also enjoyed the morning sunrise and the people surfing. Although it was only a short night, I fell in love with it.

    Beautiful viewing

    What a stunning view of this magnificent river. Dolphins were seen as was small sting rays and plenty of mullet in the water. Good place to watch the sunrise or sunset also.

    Dolphins swimming every day

    We stayed in our van right by the Hastings River and every day the dolphins swam up the river, playing about. It was lovely to watch. We also saw a turtle one day too. Very clean and a lovely view.

    Interesting

    Take the ferry over the river to the north beach. Not heaps to see but worth it for the experience. North beach is wild / desolate and beautiful.5 minute and 5 dollar ferry ride for vehicles.
