Robert, 20, said he heard about a fan in Sydney who lined up for two days. 

"I've been the first at the door for the last five iPhone launches in Hervey Bay," he said.

Hervey Bay Telstra store manager Kayla Reid said it was an exciting new launch and loved the support from the Fraser Coast. 

"We're excited about the water resistant camera it means you can get stuck out in the rain," Kayla said.

Darren Bosley, who is the area manager for the Telstra stores in Hervey Bay and Maryborough, said they were expecting a big crowd throughout the day at both launches in the Bay and Maryborough.
