River Heads

Situated on a unique waterfront peninsula, River Heads has outstanding water views of Fraser Island in the East and the Mary River in the West.

As anyone that has spent any amount of time on the beautiful eastern coast of Australia will tell you, the only place to be is by the water.

Suburbs don’t come much closer to water than River Heads, with the length of the suburb stretching along the banks of the Great Sandy Straits Marine Park on one side and the Mary and Susan Rivers on the other it has 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape and waterways.


Whether you enjoy boating, fishing or just taking in the view, the lifestyle in River Heads truly is like no other. Why not come and take a look for yourself?

Enjoy activities at our local hall which also hosts numerous events throughout the year or dine at River Heads Cafe overlooking the Susan River. We are surrounded by some of the most diverse and well stocked fishing spots in Queensland and if you like reef fish, estuary fish, prawns or crabs then you are in luck. Our local fishing club will always make sure you know what’s biting.

Or you can just take it slow, sipping wine as the sun sets over the Susan River.

Value For Money

Where else can you find magnificent island and river views for these kinds of prices? You will be truly amazed at the value for money.

One proven fact in the real estate market over the years is that properties with a water view will achieve a higher price and be more attractive to buyers. This means that many properties in seaside suburbs are now out of reach for most buyers but that is not yet the case in River Heads.

River Heads has the most spectacular views of World Heritage listed Fraser Island you will see from anywhere in Hervey Bay, yet the prices are still very affordable.
