Hervey Bay, in sunny Queensland (Australia), is mostly known as a whale-watching paradise. But this cute and quaint little town has lots more to offer! Not only it is a short trip to World Heritage Listed Fraser Island, but it is also home to lovely esplanades, tranquil beaches and much more. If you are heading to this popular town and want to take a list with of ‘things to do in Hervey Bay’ to keep you busy, here are just some of my all-time favourite Hervey Bay activities.
Hervey Bay in Queensland is known as a whale-watching paradise. Due to its unique location, whales can be found here for months on end. They deliver their calves there and spend a couple of weeks in the waters before they swim further. In September of this year, I was in Hervey Bay, and I could not leave this town without a whale-watching cruise. So at 6.30 am my alarm went off and we headed to the Spirit of Hervey Bay for a morning cruise.
