Hervey Bay has been announced as the first Whale Heritage Site in the world!

In the pristine waters off Fraser Island Humpbacks aren't just passing through on their way to their breeding grounds - they're actually taking time out to socialise, have some fun, learn some essential lifeskills and nuture their young. Hervey Bay is the whale watching capital of the world with the season from Mid July to the end of September each year.

Hervey Bay Whale Festival

Various locations, Hervey Bay 

29th - 31st July 2022

There is no other place in the world that compares to the awe-inspiring, soul-stirring, up-close whale watching encounters that you will find in Hervey Bay.

Between July and November, thousands of humpback whales travel the ‘humpback highway’ and arrive in the calm, protected waters of Hervey Bay. Unlike any other place along the ‘humpback highway’, the whales will stop and spend up to 10 days resting, socialising and playing before continuing their trip back to the Antarctic for the summer months.

This unique relationship gives reason to celebrate each year with the Hervey Bay Whale Festival. An eclectic event to recognise the importance of the ocean to Hervey Bay and promote the conservation of the marine environment and animals that are unique and important to our region.
