Best Hervey Bay beaches for photography

Planning to have a beach wedding Hervey Bay won't guarantee great photography however and this is where my extensive skills, experience and local knowledge will help you. As a Hervey Bay wedding photographer I can ensure you will have the stunning beach wedding photography to match the magical location you have for your Hervey Bay wedding plans. Areas you can consider for your Hervey Bay beach ceremony and photography include:

  • Boat Harbour beach - this is the beach adjacent to the Urangan boat harbour rock wall. There are toilets and some protection from rain and a well shaded park.
  • Dayman Park - This park at Urangan has two beaches available and a lookout overlooking the water. Wedding ceremonies can be held at the lookout, down in the park under trees or on either of the beaches. Toilets, water and some shelter is available. A kiddies playground is also available here.
  • Urangan Pier - This is the iconic place for wedding photography in Hervey Bay and it is possible to have your ceremony on the beach here or in any of the adjacent parkland and foreshore. Toilets, water and shelter are available and there are a couple of take away food shops plus Salt restaurant and cafe and Oceans Resort which has full bar and restaurant facilities overlooking the water (great accommodation and reception location).
  • Shelley Beach - The foreshore area at Shelley Beach has some lovely shaded areas where wedding ceremonies can be held and toilets are available.
  • Gatakers Bay - There is a lovely foreshore area here overlooking the bay to Dundowran Beach. The beach here has a different aspect to the other beaches and the sun appears to set over the water as the beach faces in a westerly direction.The beach here is small and mainly rocky but well worth consideration for a smaller ceremony. Toilets and water are available.
  • Point Vernon - There are a couple of locations around Point Vernon which you can consider for your wedding Ceremony and photography. At the western end of the point before you go around to Gatakers Bay is a park with some car parking, toilets etc. This location is probably better suited to wedding photography than your ceremony as the park is not as well treed as other parks but there is some shelter. Further back towards Pialba are stretches of park land that border the beach. The trees here offer more shade and are larger. The area was actually a golf course many years ago and there are still lovely stretches of open grassed areas bordered with large shady trees.


Beach wedding photography in Hervey Bay is best when you have outgoing tides. By this I mean a falling tide exposing more beach or rocks is better than an incoming tide that is reducing the beach area. May not seem too important but it is well worth consideration when planning your Hervey Bay wedding photography. I discuss all these considerations with you when you book me as your Hervey Bay wedding photographer.

You can still plan to have your Hervey Bay wedding photography at the beach even if you are having a church wedding in Hervey Bay or Maryborough wedding. Another location for a great ceremony overlooking the beautiful Hervey Bay beaches and Urangan Pier is Oceans Resort. Here you can plan to have your wedding ceremony on the rooftop of one of the resorts penthouse suites.
