Whale Watching

 

... IN THE SOUTHERN HUMPBACK WHALES FAVOURITE PLAYGROUND, HERVEY BAY!

 

Let the humpback whales amaze you with their close encounters, magical songs, spectacular breaching and their ultimate display of trust while they share their newborn calves.

Hervey Bay is also known as the whale watching capital of the world. This small town in Queensland is widely regarded as the best destination to see humpback whales because the whales stay here for an extended period, and visitors get to experience them as they relax and play with the whale watching vessels.
