Sanctuary Lakes Fauna Retreat in Hervey Bay is the perfect destination for your fun and relaxing family holiday.

Inside the resort’s 10 acres of tranquil nature reserve, you will quickly forget that you are just 300 metres from the beach and close to shops, restaurants, and other conveniences.

The Resort

Your family will enjoy the privacy of your very own fully self-contained villa. Within the resort you will find facilities including BBQ’s, swimming pool, and a fully-equipped laundry.

Nearby Conveniences & Things to Do

One of the things families love most about Sanctuary Lakes Fauna Retreat is that it is so peaceful yet so close to the shops, restaurants, and some of the best attractions in Hervey Bay.

Group Bookings

Booking accommodation for a family group or club doesn’t need to be complicated or stressful – if you find the right location. What could be more perfect than a private and peaceful spot with individual accommodation for space and privacy. All this while still being close to the other members of your group? Large group or small group, we can help you out.

This place is great, I would recommend for anyone visiting Hervey Bay. It is a 1 minute walk to the beach, close to Woolworths, and has an on site laundry and pool. Deb and Rod are very friendly and will help you with anything you need. They made my partner and I feel very welcome and comfortable. The cabins are beautiful and clean, all of which have a lake view. There is spectacular wildlife around the lake, very friendly and can be hand fed with bird food that can be bought for cheap at reception. Our favourites were all the ducks Deb and Rod have raised, and the turtles that came up out of the lake for food. I will definitely be coming back.
