Seashells on Urangan apartments are located at the Eastern end of Hervey Bay set back on The Esplanade.

The neighbourhood is very quiet with the nearest shopping centre and supermarket 1.5 km and the Marina with bars, restaurants, The Hervey Bay Boat Club and major boat ramp about 600 metres distant. Both are close enough yet far enough.

Whale watch (in season) day trips and other cruises all leave from the Marina and the Fraser Island barge leaves from River Heads about 20 minutes away.

Free pick up and drop offs are offered by all tour operators (at time of writing but best to check).

Across the road lies Urangan Beach, at high tide this is a beautiful, safe swimming beach with shade available above high water and at low tide the yabbie pumpers have a field day.

It is very much underutilised except by locals. Fishing at high tide and walking on the marina breakwater are popular pastimes.

The shady, cool, green reserve backing the beach offers BBQ and toilet facilities.

Further afield the famous 860 metre long Urangan pier is about 20-25 minutes very pleasant walk which offers shade for most of the distance.
