GUITAR riffs will ring through the bush at River Heads when hundreds of people leave the stresses of urban living behind them for a night out under the stars and live music.
River Heads Rocks will offer visitors a chance to sit back and relax while listening to great music at the Fraser Coast RV Park in Bengtson Road.
A line-up of five bands will ensure everyone gets their music fix on Saturday, 26 June.

Event organizer and owner/manager of Fraser Coast RV Park Suzanne Taylor said there has been an amazing response to the concert so far.
“We have people coming from as far away as South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Northern Territory. These are all people coming to the Fraser Coast specifically for River Heads Rocks,” Suzanne said.

“This is a great way for us to show-off what we have at Fraser Coast RV Park, but also for people to see and experience River Heads and the surrounding areas.”
Suzanne said the plan is for River Heads Rocks to become an annual event.
“We want people to come and experience great music, while also enjoying their stay with us at the park. When they leave, we want them to say they’ll see us again at the next one,” she said.

The new Tank Block shower and toilet facilities offer visitors the chance to shower under the stars in a rustic-looking but not shy of modern convenience set-up that could become the park’s central attraction.
Other blocks have shower heads fashioned out of metal buckets, watering cans and old bread tins.
The quirky nature of Fraser Coast RV Park gives the venue an identity of its own. And it’s that unique experience that will keep you heading back.
Suzanne said the park is also popular among those looking to try their luck while fishing Hervey Bay.
The park is close to the local boat ramp and has boat flushing facilities.
“We’re the closest accommodation venue to the K’gari (Fraser Island) barge crossing which means people also use us as a convenient springboard to the island.”
