Hervey Bay

A popular holiday destination, Hervey Bay is located on the Fraser Coast 290km north of Brisbane. The warm climate all year round makes the 40km of pristine calm beaches great for getting wet, from swimming to kite surfing there’s something for everyone. Humpback whales migrate each year to warmer waters to breed and stop around July in Hervey Bay for a bit of R&R, perfect for whale watching. Don’t forget your bike, there is 14km of easy coastline path to pedal, an excellent way to take in the relaxed atmosphere of Hervey Bay. The largest sand island in world, heritage listed Fraser Island lies just off the coast and is a populated with one of the most amazing and richest rainforests you’ll ever see.
