WetSide Water Park is located on a hectare of land on the picturesque foreshore of Hervey Bay overlooking Fraser Island.
The WetSide Water Park was officially opened on the 6 December 2009 as part of Queensland's 150th Celebrations. The park is built on 384 piers sunk deep into the sand to raise the traffic areas on boardwalks, preserving the dune structure beneath and allowing native plants to flourish.
Entry is free and includes TotSide (a special area for under 5s), hundreds of fountains, a tipping bucket and water slides. Walk around the seaside boardwalks and soak up some of the water education on offer with hundreds of water messages ‘drip-fed’ to you along the way. For a fee, you can catch a wave on the BoardRider wave machine.
There is also a coffee shop, fish and chip shop and restuarant on site.
