Emeraldene Inn Exterior


“Emeraldene” is an old English derivative of “Emerald” meaning “green”, and “dene” meaning “narrow wooded valley” or “low hill by the sea”.

The Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge is set in 2 acres of natural bushland and landscaped gardens, with an abundance of birdlife and native flora and fauna. As a family owned and operated business, we pride ourselves on providing true Australian hospitality and helpful local advice.

We aim to provide our guests with a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing experience in as natural a setting as possible. Our knowledge of the region and its attractions is second to none, and we can offer quality advice and book all tours (Fraser Island, Lady Elliot Island, Whale Watching, and many more) with complimentary transfer for most.

If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable or comfortable, please feel free to ask. We hope you enjoy your stay at the Emeraldene Inn, and have a relaxing and memorable time with us.

The accomodation setting was lovely and quiet. Plenty of space for the three of us and very clean inside, we found the self contained kitchen very handy too.

A great hide away for peace and tranquillity in Hervey Bay. The lodgings are set in a beautiful rainforest setting that's quiet. The inn was close to shops and restaurants in Pialba. The inn keepers were very friendly, and I appreciated their help in finding the shops and restaurant. Highly recommended if you want to relax away from the city lights and sounds, and want total seclusion.

The bed was comfortable, the owner was lovely very helpful with providing a map of the area and also marked the best spot for the beautiful sunset.

Thank you Yong and Bo for your warm welcome and the hospitality, so we enjoyed everything at your motel. The room is clean and comfortable with very competitive price.The only pity seems one-night staying was too short and rush so next time we may stay longer. Heyvey bay is a beautiful place and whale watching is an unforgettable experience.

Yong was extremely helpful with communicating prior to our stay and whilst we were staying at Emeraldene Inn. We brought our boat with Us and she allowed Us to have the extra parking space to park the boat when we weren't using it. Shower pressure was excellent especially after a long day out on the water. The room was clean and comfortable. It had all the facilties we needed whilst staying.

Enjoyed my stay at the peaceful Emeraldene Inn. It was a great place to unwind after my busy work days. Felt like I was staying in a rainforest whilst still being close everything in Hervey Bay.

I stayed at Emeraldene lodge for 4 weeks during a short contract at the Hervey Bay hospital. It was the best hospital accommodation I’ve stay at. The lodge is surrounded by so much nature! The room was clean and well maintained with a beautiful deck right outside the room. I enjoyed waking up to birds chirping every morning. Yong is a great host and an excellent tour booking agent. She helped me arrange a week long diving trip at the Lady Elliot island. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Hervey Bay!

Thank you, Yong and Bo!We had a great stay at your Hotel! Rooms were big and clean and convenient. The garden is great and all the trees are great and we could get some rest. Unfortunately, we couldn't use the pool or the BBQ because of the weather.I will recommend it!!!
