Get up close and personal with the humpbacks

The whales are on their way to the Fraser Coast and you should be too! When it comes to awe-inspiring moments with humpbacks, the best advice we can give is - don't just take our word for it.

In 2018, you can see for yourself that there is no place like Hervey Bay for up close and personal interaction with the Humpback whales.

Twenty years of research has proven that Hervey Bay is the only genuine stopover for these gentle giants of the sea while on one of the longest mammal migration journeys on the planet. From the months of July - November you can come face to face with the whales while on board one of our many whale watching vessels.

And if you're not busy locking eyes with giant Humpback Whales aboard a whale watching cruise there's plenty more to do around the Fraser Coast.

Explore World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, with ancient rainforests, freshwater lakes and flowing streams, just to name a few. You can also head underwater and explore the famous Great Barrier Reef at Lady Elliot Island.

Browse on and visit us this season between late July and November for the world’s best whale watching and so much more!
