In our Reception area we have a quantity of low priced souvenirs-books.
Many of our souvenirs are hand crafted by our own volunteers so truly represent Hervey Bay and Australia. They are all competitively priced and are perfect to take back home as gifts or as a reminder of the great time you had in Hervey Bay. We give all our visitors a “Magic Wedge” for free  which is a great conversation piece when you get home. In addition, if you visit on a Sunday afternoon, you can help make your own free rope souvenir and a wooden top or goblet. Our demonstrators are always happy to “Rope” you in!
