Where I grew up...

There are so many great things about Hervey Bay. It is a highly desirable tourist destination. It has a superb climate, relaxed lifestyle, beautiful calm beaches, and a host of interesting land and water based activities. Every year, thousands of Australian and overseas visitors travel to Hervey Bay. It is particularly popular with European Backpackers.

Between July and November Hervey Bay is the premier whale watching venue in the country, when Humpback Whales visit to frolic in the warm shallow waters of the Bay.

Just offshore lies Fraser Island. Hailed as the world?s largest sand island, it hosts a surprising array of flora and fauna including unique tropical rain forest and the purest strain of the Australian native dog the Dingo.

Hand in hand with its friendly and relaxed existence, Hervey Bay offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a range of eateries and entertainment venues from trendy street cafes to clubs and fine dining restaurants.
