Fantastic! Plenty of shade, free water playground for the kids (have to pay for the waterslides) and lots of seating in the shade for the adults.

On our last full day in Hervey Bay, we visited the WetSide Water Park, which is free aside from the big slide. I have two kids under 5 and they both had a great time. It's definitely the best, free water park we've come across...More

An amazing free facility. So lovely to be able to enjoy such watery fun, but with no deep water to worry about. Even at peak holiday, busy, but you can find spots to make your base for your family. Access to the beach if you...More

This water park is great, we have visited all of these type of facilities along the Qld coast and this one was also very good. The one in Townsville was more structured to prevent kids pushing little ones out of the lines for the slides,...More

Thank you so much for your review! I'll have to look into the Townsville facility to see if we could implement a similar system. We appreciate your support!

We took our grandchildren to the new waterslides. We were all so impressed by the whole waterpark and so cheap (10 rides for $5). Keep it up Hervey Bay.

Dropped in for a play with the kids for a bit. It was a hot day. They had a ball in the water spouts, I enjoyed the coffee.... Some additional shades areas would be good though....

A great place to go on a hot day ! Not much seating but. You aren't allowed to bring your own food either, but knowing that, you can plan. Good idea to bring chairs !!!! Only suitable for Children. Teens will get bored possibly.More
