Hervey Bay

With the largest population in the Fraser Coast Region, Hervey Bay is a hub of activity. Humans aren't the only busy species in this coastal town. The waters are also alive with some gigantic neighbors: humpback whales. The bay is a social gathering place for families of whales that are closely monitored by the local Oceania Project. The humpbacks come to the bay to give birth to young, play, and socialize. They are used to the presence of whale-watching vessels and often rise out of the water for air. When using our Australia day trip planning tool to make an itinerary online, Hervey Bay holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Hervey Bay

From one end of town to the other, Hervey Bay is dotted with places to stay, ranging from luxurious hotels and apartments to cozy guesthouses and hostels. Many of these put you right next to the beach, or just a couple of blocks inland with easy access to the coast. The town also features a selection of RV parks fully equipped with all the facilities you might need. There are also several camping areas in town, but if you prefer to spend your vacation surrounded by verdant nature, a much better choice is to hop on a ferry and head to nearby Fraser Island.
