If you are looking for a tranquil spot in the Whitsundays to kick back and relax, do some beachcombing, snorkeling, fishing, or simply enjoy the bush setting, then Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park is for you!
Part of the Whitsunday region, the very secluded Hydeaway Bay lives up to its name. Don’t be surprised if you are the only one sunbathing on the long sandy beaches, or you have the rocky headland to yourself for fishing, or you are the only one enjoying snorkeling around the beautiful fringing reef off the beach.
It is totally un-spoilt hamlet nestled in a quiet secluded pristine bay with no holiday crowds, supermarkets, noise, or busy traffic. What it does have is a low-key residential area, a quiet bush setting caravan, and a camping park with a kiosk where ice, hot water, and cold drinks, snacks, bait, and basic grocery supplies are available. The road is now sealed all the way.
Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park is in a peaceful bush setting a 5-minute walk from the beach (and no roads to cross over). Wildlife comes to the park. Wallabies, Kangaroos, Potaroos wander through, along with the lorikeets and birdlife that can be experienced up close.
Owner-operators Paul and Roz Willcocks say the local fishing is another attraction at Hydeaway. Both experienced and beginner anglers can have a lot of fun and luck fishing off the beach, or, out in a tinny off the nearby reefs.
There are many powered and unpowered sites for vans and campers. You will be greeted with a friendly welcome.
We have a kiosk, a recreational room with a pool table TV, and a book exchange. There are coin-operated washing machines and a dryer. The BBQ camp kitchen area has a timber-fired BBQ, a fire pit, and a camp oven pit.
There are other activities including beach walking, searching for shells at low tide, and viewing exposed coral, some bring canoes and sailing boats. Restrained pets are welcome. So bring your van, tent, boat, etc, and rediscover the joys of simple beach pleasures and a laid-back lifestyle for a couple of days or weeks, or months.
