Ocean Festival 2018

Scarness, Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

10 – 19 August 2018 - 

There is no other place in the world that compares to the awe-inspiring, soul-stirring, up-close whale watching encounters that you will find in Hervey Bay.

Between July and November, thousands of humpback whales travel the ‘humpback highway’ and arrive in the calm, protected waters of Hervey Bay.

Unlike any other place along the ‘humpback highway’, the whales will stop and spend up to 10 days, resting, socialising and playing before continuing their trip back to the Antarctic for the summer months.

This unique relationship gives reason to celebrate each year with the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival. An eclectic event to recognise the importance of the ocean to Hervey Bay and promote the conservation of the marine environment and animals that are unique and important to our region.

The festival kicks off on August 10 with a calendar of colourful events that includes seafood, conservation, live concerts and more.
