Why Stay at The Friendly? Here's some great reasons...

 At "the Friendly" we pride ourselves on offering everyone clean, comfortable, affordable accommodation with all of the little extras of home that you don't get in other forms of budget accommodation.

Small, clean, quiet and friendly

In purpose built, apartment-style accommodation with polished floorboards, back balcony with ocean views and large, cool, comfortable rooms all year round, you can relax and enjoy the delights of beautiful Hervey Bay and Fraser Island.

With only 28 beds in total and a maximum of 7 people sharing excellent facilities such as modern, fully equipped kitchens, you can experience personal service and develop friendships with fellow guests in a quiet, intimate setting.

No rowdy bars, no cramped dorms, no walking to an outside amenities block, just relax, meet new friends and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

We provide things like:

Safe and Secure

With lockers in dormitory style rooms (only 3 or 4 people to a dorm), security screens on all accessible windows and doors and individually keyed rooms, your safety and security are important to us. Gary is available 24 hours a day to assist you if there are any emergencies out of office hours.

Quality Information and Tour Bookings

We live and breathe Fraser Island and Hervey Bay every day so can provide you with the most up to date and indepth information on all of the things to see and do in the region. We go on all of the tours so that we know what they are really like (the brochures never tell you the not so good bits), and there are loads of bonus extras for booking your tours through our inhouse booking office. Make sure that you make the most of your visit to Hervey Bay and book with the people who have to welcome you back from your tour - we want you to enjoy all of the things to do in the region.
