THE site where Hervey Bay's first European settler came ashore has been officially named after him by the Fraser Coast Regional Council.  The Pialba site - stretching about 100m east from the Beach Rd roundabout to the Pialba Caravan Park is known as Boyle Martin Landing.   Boyle, his wife Sarah and their child, George purchased a row boat in Maryborough and made the trip to start a life in Hervey Bay.  Boyle made a living as a timber cutter, felling trees to go to the Dundathu Sawmill.
