Hervey Bay

4.5
Dolphin & Whale Watching · Biking Trails · Waterskiing & Jetskiing
With the largest population in the Fraser Coast Region, Hervey Bay is a hub of activity. Humans aren't the only busy species in this coastal town. The waters are also alive with some gigantic neighbors: humpback whales. The bay is a social gathering place for families of whales that are closely monitored by the local Oceania Project. The humpbacks come to the bay to give birth to young, play, and socialize. They are used to the presence of whale-watching vessels and often rise out of the water for air. When using our Australia day trip planning tool to make an itinerary online, Hervey Bay holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
