Hervey Bay Whale Watching

Hervey Bay Whale Watching

Hervey Bay isn't called the whale watch capital of the world for nothing. Located only 3hrs north of Brisbane, this quiet seaside town becomes the centre of the whale watching activity for three and a half months each year.

The whale watch season in Hervey Bay is from mid July - mid October. 

Hervey Bay is widely regarded as the best place to watch whales in Australia as pods of magnificent Humpback whales make this their home for weeks on end. This is what makes Hervey Bay Whale Watching unique. The whales aren't just "passing through", they stop to relax and nurse their new calves in the warm sheltered waters of Platypus Bay, between Fraser Island and Hervey Bay.

This makes Hervey Bay as second-to-none Whale Watching destination in Australia. A whale watch cruise in Hervey bay really is an experience of a lifetime.
