Hervey Bay is known for being the whale-watching capital of Australia.

Humpback whales swim into the bay for a relaxing time in the calm waters with their babies before making their way back south.

Things to Do in Hervey Bay

To make the most out of your trip to Hervey Bay, consider stopping off at some of these top Hervey Bay attractions.

Take a Whale Watching Tour

You may have come to Hervey Bay to see the whales migrating during their annual migration between July and November, and this is absolutely the number one thing to do in Hervey Bay, so we include this first.

Enjoy The Sunset at Enzos on the Beach

Enzos is the place to be for sunset. Grab yourself a beanbag under the umbrella and your drink of choice and enjoy.

Take a walk along the Esplanade

The 14km long shared pathway stretches from the Urangan Pier at the eastern end of the city to Gatakers Bay in the west. 

Attend the Relish Food and Wine Festival

We were lucky to be in town during the Relish Food and Wine Festival held in Maryborough. If you’re travelling to Hervey Bay in June, be sure to add this to your itinerary.

Take a Day Trip to Fraser Island (K’Gari)

It’s one of the best places to encounter native wildlife such as dingoes, which call the island home, as well as see sharks, whales, and dolphins from the shoreline.
