Hervey Bay is a popular spot for our biggest coastal visitors, the humpback whales from June to November. More than 7,000 whales holiday in the Fraser Coast on their 5,000km migration from Antarctica to teach their baby calves sweet skills like breaching, spy hopping, tummy flashes and plenty of other survival tools.
Here’s why Hervey Bay
is the whale watching capital of Australia:
- Get up-close and personal on a catamaran experience or sit back and watch the whales play on a super vessel
- Share the ocean and swim with the whales
- Jump aboard the Whale Express with a half day tour or really get to know the barnacled beauties with an in-depth day tour
Mmwwwwwwaaah (that’s whale speak for “Either way, you’ll have a whale of a time!”).
