Hervey Bay Mud Crabs

River Heads is a small town 15min south of Hervey Bay on a narrow peninsula bordered by the Great Sandy Strait, and the mouth of the Mary River.

It’s a popular place to jump onboard a vessel heading over to Fraser Island from the mainland, but Andrew is heading upstream to pick up a few mud crabs.

If you’re planning on catching and cooking a few keepers, you might also want to pick up a crab cooker to save time boiling them up.
