Weekends you can catch the twilight markets at the marina in Urangan or the beach markets in Torquay.

FIVE3FIVE is a unique beachfront property by all accounts built in the 1920's as a barracks for convalescing soldiers returning after WWI. The building was later extended in the 1960's. Seven months of renovations have brought a sophisticated edge and retained a piece of Hervey Bay history. Each home has been designed with the comfort and convenience of beachside living in mind - perfect for those who enjoy experiencing the flavour of outdoor living inside. The elements of nature are all around you - even inside the apartment. Double doors in the front of the ground floor apartments bring the lush jungle shade garden inside.
Outdoor lighting creates a magical night time ambiance. We have outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful tropical garden and sea breezes. The internal corridor of each apartment hosts meters of indoor timber planter boxes capturing the indoor-outdoor feeling. This is complimented by soft Asian lantern lighting that creates an exotic charm. The interior design is a clash of old world heritage meets modern Asian influence and the result is amazing.
Steps from your door, the beach access pathway leads to another world. A little jetty takes you out over the water in a short moment. The jetty is perfect for being mesmerised by the sparkling waters of the Great Sandy Strait with views of the Urangan Pier and Fraser Island off in the distance or just watching the birds make lazy circles in the sky. It's also a wonderful landmark if you are out for a beach stroll or out paddling on the water - you can always find your way back to where you want to be on the beach!!
Go for a bike ride along the Esplanade and enjoy the free fitness stations or get out on the water in a single or double kayak or better yet a pedal boat... Two people pedal and two get to enjoy the ride!!
For those fishermen out there with midnight timetables, we have rods and a tackle box. You are not far away for throwing in a line. This particular jetty is a favorite spot for local fishermen. For the romantics. how about some spectacular star gazing at night or an evening picnic on the beach. Watch the bats fly by at dusk or just enjoy the sunset.
The beachfront parkland features an outdoor shower to rinse off after playing in the water or to cool down before a long jaunt. A free undercover BBQ can cater for small or big groups and has public facilities. You can just saunter across the road and cook outdoors on the barbie and enjoy dining on the beach foreshore. Best of all is the vista over Shelly Beach with views that Hervey Bay is famous for. Relax and enjoy the seascape.
Fancy being able to sit on the beach to sip your morning coffee... There is plenty of picnic seating on the foreshore. Get an early start and you can catch the sunrise while enjoying the sound of the waves. With such proximity, you can really enjoy the beach. Take a stroll at sunset or sneak over for a quick dip before dinner if you take in one of the many day trips on offer including Whale watching, Fraser or Lady Elliot Islands.
