Point Vernon to remain natural after development: Mayor says

POINT Vernon is expected to retain its natural charm when the Fraser Coast Regional Council enhances the area.

The council has already upgraded the Gables' picnic area and sealed the carpark in ESA Park.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the council would continue to enhance the area.

"As we head to a new council term I would really encourage people to give us feedback," he said.

More than $11 million will be spent on the Hervey Bay Esplanade from Pialba to Urangan.

Projects are expected to include a new waterslide for WetSide, repaving of footpaths and vegetation management.

Cr O'Connell said Point Vernon would likely remain a quiet residential area.

"If you had to identify it you'd say it's natural and residential," he said.
