Where are those 600dollar flights from? You could always try and get cheap flights to Brisbane and drive up to Hervey Bay. Not a bad drive with a few nice stops along the way like Montville. Hey you could always go to Australia Zoo along the Bruce Highway as well?
Hope this helps.

Greyhound Bus takes 5 and a half hours and costs $55 one way.

Alternatively, Tilt Train or Sunlander from Brisbane to Maryborough (just under 4 hours, from about $60) then a short shuttle bus trip to Hervey Bay.

I too would suggest the Tilt Train - I know people that have done it by minivan, and said it was a horrendous journey in comparison to the train
