Go for the Whales !!!

Hervey Bay is situated on the Fraser Coast, and is a popular point from which to visit nearby Fraser Island. Hervey Bay is also a great place to go whale watching, during the whales migration further north and south between July and November.

There are a number of places to stay around Hervey Bay, with many hostels and apartmenst along the Esplanade and Torquay Road. The Esplanade is also the place to go if you are looking for food, as there are plenty of restaurants and cafes along there.

Other than joining one of the whale watching cruises, there are several other attractions around Hervey Bay. If you enjoy fishing then head to Urangan Pier which is a great spot for fishing. Hervey Bay also offers diving courses, which are a good idea if you are on your way to the Great Barrier Reef. Around the town are a number of animal museums and parks which you can visit including Hervey Bay Nature World, Neptune's Reef World, and Vic Hislop's Great White Shark Expo.
