Hervey Bay

Situated 3 and a half hours drive north of Queensland’s capital, Brisbane, Hervey Bay, a coastal city in southern Queensland with a population of some 60,000+ and covering 93.2 km² is a natural bay between the mainland and World Heritage-listed Fraser Island. Renowned for its visiting humpback whales, and the close and intimate Whale Watching experiences that the local fleet can offer, Hervey Bay is a popular playground for tourists all year round because of its mild climate.

Hervey Bay’s golden beaches stretch for approximately 14 kilometres along the Bay’s foreshore offering families a safe haven to swim or to just enjoy the sand. Directly opposite the esplanade, all beaches are close to services and facilities.

Sheltered by Fraser Island, the beach side town of Hervey Bay is a friendly and relaxing place to visit! 

It's also a destination hub for a variety of tours to nearby Fraser Island, which has pristine white beaches and features a rain forest habitat for dingoes and other unique native wildlife. The city has a marvellous waterfront esplanade linking the city's Urangan marina with beaches offering calm waters for swimmers of all ages.
Hervey Bay offers a wonderful arena for fishing and has been a popular destination for the lure thrower for decades. Recently the region has been recognised as a big game marlin fishery with regular 1000 pounders tipping the scales recorded.
