Have Your Say on Fraser Coast website – www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au/have-your-say - with the survey remaining open until 15 January 2021. (SURVEY NOW CLOSED - We'll have an update in due course!)

Hervey Bay on QLD's fabulous Fraser Coast is a 'paradise' for tourists, nomads and holiday-makers with kids wanting to enjoy the ‘Wide Bay’s’ endless safe stretches of beach. Except if your kids have fur.

You see the only caravan parks situated right on the beachfront - and there are four of them - are owned by the local Council and don’t allow pets.

Hervey Bay councillor Jade Wellings thinks that’s not only unfair – she believes the region is missing out on valuable income because pet owners are by-passing Hervey Bay to go elsewhere to get beach-side locations – and she wants to get at least one or preferably two of the council’s caravan parks’ rules changed to allow pets.

But the Council won’t act until it hears via its online survey that people want pet-friendly parks.
We caught up with Councillor Jade Wellings to find out more.

The general caravan & camping community is being encouraged to participate via Council’s Have Your Say page on its website – www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au/have-your-say - with the survey remaining open until 15 January 2021.
