From its humble beginnings, the suburb of Scarness is home to some of Hervey Bay’s most prominent and historic landmarks including the Scarness Jetty.

Scarness as one of the original beach side townships is known to many as the heart of tourism in the Bay. The location offers some of the best swimming beaches. It also boasts a number of modern high rise apartment complexes and stylish resorts. The area still remains a popular destination for budget conscious holiday makers with its beachfront caravan park and affordable beach side holiday accommodation.

Dining options include a nice range of restaurants and cafés as well as the newly renovated Beach House Hotel.

Scarness is considered one of the best value for money suburbs on the Fraser Coast with its central location and relative affordability.

I absolutely LOVE living in Scarness because it so peaceful and yet so handy to everything that Hervey Bay has to offer! Awesome weather all year round as well as great restaurants, cafes, shops, parks & so much more! This is certainly the perfect seaside lifestyle. Scarness Beach and its adjacent parkland is great for anyone and everyone, including families, retirees, singles and couples. The bike path literally stretches right the way along the Esplanade from Urangan to Point Vernon as well as into Pialba and along Boat Harbour Drive making it easy to get around by bike or on foot. And it’s also well lit making it very safe at night.
