Best spots to stock up at before your yacht charter
So, you’ve booked your yacht holiday (lucky you!), you’ve got time off work and you’re ready to start packing and get this show on the road. One of the most important things to think about for your boating holiday is of course stocking up on all the food and drinks you could possibly need while enjoying time out on the water.
While some of you may bring all your goodies with you, for those of you who are travelling from further afield, we’ve got a list of the best places to stock up from in Hervey Bay before your holiday begins;
Fraser Coast Fresh Produce
If you’re looking to dig into some locally sourced fare for your fruit and veg, we recommend making a top into Fraser Coast Fresh Produce while you’re travelling through the centre of town in Hervey Bay.
Address: 97 Main Street, Hervey Bay
Go Natural Foods
For the health food lovers, Go Natural Foods in Torquay is your go to before hitting the water. Go Natural stocks a range of quality organic and natural products and they also support producers that maintain sustainable practices – win, win!
Address: 6 Bideford Street, Hervey Bay
Woolworths in Urangan
For convenience, we recommend Woolworths in Urangan which is a short five minute drive from the Great Sandy Straits Marina (where you’ll depart from). Woolworths will stock any grocery items you need and there’s also that all important bottle shop in the same complex.
Address: 119 Elizabeth Street, Hervey Bay
Urangan Pier Park Markets
If you happen to be in Hervey Bay on a Saturday, make sure you head down to Pier Park near the Urangan Pier to check out our weekly markets. You’ll find a great range of local businesses selling unique items as well as a number of fruit and veg providers that can help stock up that fridge on the boat.
Address: 6/8 Pilot Street, Hervey Bay
Let’s not forget the morning coffee hit. If you’re hanging for a caffeine hit before you head off on your sailing adventure, Cafe Balena has you covered and is only a 2 minute walk from our boats on the Great Sandy Straits Marina.
Address: 7 Buccaneer Drive (Great Sandy Straits Marina), Hervey Bay
