Hervey Bays humpback whales are just as friendly as the locals. Thats what makes our whale watching in Hervey Bay so special as it is the only place in the world where whales actually stop and take time to play.
Every year approximately 8,000 humpback whales migrate from Antartica to the Whitsunday Islands to breed, then in late July to early November on their return to the south they bring their calves to Hervey Bay for some time out and play in our warm waters.
Whale watching in Hervey Bay can be taken as a 1/2 or 3/4 day tour or a quick couple of hours and is a truly awesome and often humbling experience that will stay with you forever.
Fraser Island or KGari, meaning paradise with its mirrored lakes, rainforests, mesmerising sand blows and historic icons are well worth the visit.
Fraser Island is world heritage listed and is the largest sand island in the world. It is home to untouched freshwater lakes and creeks, including some of the worlds rarest dune lakes, wetlands, 1,000 year old rainforest trees, all of which grow sand. Seventy Five Mile Beach is a highway complete with a shipwreck and cliffs of coloured sands and is driven on by tour buses and 4wd vechicles.
The rainforests which usually require high rainfall and rich soil to thrive call Fraser Island home. The Island boasts some 350 species of birds, wallabies, possums, echidnas and Australias purest dingoes.
Fresh water turtles, dolphins, dugongs and of course humpback whales during their migration between May and November are some of the wildlife that uses the ocean and waterways of Fraser Island as their homes. Fraser Islands flora and fauna provide a natural attraction for tourists and are rich in Aboriginal history.
