About Discover Hervey Bay

Daniel Clarke

The website is run by myself Daniel Clarke, I’m lucky enough to have been living in Hervey Bay, for 31 years so I’m classed as a local I have seen many changes over this time.

I have been running websites since early 2000 in Hervey Bay. Growing up in NSW and moving to the area when I was young it was very hard to leave Queensland or Hervey Bay, It has been home ever since and will continue to stay that way as we have family here.

Some of the site history of this website.

  • The website started in January 1999.
  • The old owner was Malcolm Thomas.
  • I caught a plane and flew to Sydney and bought the site from him in October 2007.
  • At the time I did not own the site I was contracted to work on it as I was a local.
  • The site was once named hervey.com.au.
  • Over the years we have updated the site it was a big job as the content was very old (1999).
  • Around 4 years ago I took on other work and the owner left DHB to sit untouched.
  • I was then contacted again to take over the site and become the owner!
  • Since 2018 the site has been worked on full time with new content added weekly.
  • We travel to all areas of Hervey Bay and Fraser Coast exploring the area.

Some things about me

I have been into local travel of the area for a long time, I’m out finding new places that I have never seen before. Fraser Coast seems a small place until you travel to it or start to write about it, Then it becomes very big!

Even more so if you add Fraser Island into the mix, We plan to cover Fraser Island a lot more on the website.
