Anyway, I would love to see everyone when I get back, so a girls night would be fab. XX
Sorry to hear your sad news Mrs Kiwi.

I wish you trouble free travelling at this unhappy time. Thinking of you.
See you when you get back.

Hi Safrin and Angela,

Nice to meet you all. I'm moving to Hervey Bay (HB) alone. Yes, I'm in a early 20's and I'm from Brisbane. I'll be serving my qualification year in HB in the Allied Health care industry.

I'm rather concern about the location I should stay in. From the previous posts... I realise that there are sand flies and mosqitoes in HB... Which area should I avoid to avoid them as I'm not on very good terms with mozi and sandflies?

Also, which is the best internet provider? is there TPG there? or is it only Telstra?

I realised that the operator 3 mobile does not work very well in HB.... Which is the best mobile operator in HB which has the strongest signal and acceptable monthly bills?

What do young people normally do there? What kind of clubs and activities do they join?

pardon me for the many questions that I've asked.

Cheers
Cryz

Morning Cryz, (unusual name!!!)

Ok to answer some of your questions, and before anyone gets on their soap box, just my opinion!!!
Re mozzies, or little bastards as they ae afectionately called here.
Personnally I would stay away from the top end of Urangan where the marina and mangroves are. Also Ive had problems in Eli waters, Toogoom and Craignish. Basically anywhere outside town!!!!! Best thing is just to spray up everytime you go outside at dawn and dusk. I got attacked big time last year in Toogoom. They really are persistant little bastards!!!
Re internet. We are with telstra and pay about $70 for unlimited access. Yes TPG are here too.
Best mobile coverage is telstra, but we are with optus as I feel telstra plans are expensive. We have 2 contract phones and pay $50 cap on each. I text and call ever one, (1350 texts last month) and I never go over.
Now onto young folk. There are two night clubs in town. One on the esplanade and one in town, with a really popular pub called the Tavern over the road. Abit quieter is Hoolies, our local, who do good old pub grub and have bands on on a weekend, oh and diddly dee music too, being an Irish bar. There are plenty of licenced cafe`s along the esplanade too and new resturants popping up every month it seems!!! Overal its not the liveliest of towns, if we want that then we head down to Brissie for the weekend, but it suits us.
Angela

Hi
Just looking for some honest opinions on Hervey Bay and if its a suitable place for teenagers which can offer job oportunities and a good future without having to move away.
We currently live down on the Gold Coast and I work in Logan having only been here 5 months from the UK. The Gold Coast has plenty going on and I dont think any of us will be bored but the South East corner is just to busy for us and it can get suffocating for the likes of us who are not used to busy. Its only going to get worse I feel with future development plans and more and more people moving here.
I have got a 17 year old boy and 12 year old daughter and we recently went up to Hervey Bay for a short break and the wife and myself preferred it. So I have put in a job transfer for this area, even though there will be no guarantee of me getting a transfer. I just wanted to make sure if we do move up to Hervey Bay that it will be the correct decision for al the family.
my son more so who loves sport and just wants to be able to go out and get around easy so he can catch up with friends. What do most of the teenagers get up to in Hervey Bay? When we were up there we had a meal in one of the indian restaurants and the young girl who served us said she had always lived there and her sister felt trapped there and couldnt wait to leave for Brisbane when she was old enough. Made we wonder if my kids would feel the same.
Sorry for the long waffle but would appreciate the opinions of those living it.
Gary
