Hervey Bay - K'gari - Lady Elliot Island
Welcome to Hervey Bay, or as our local fifth-generation family have always called it "Happy Hervey".
Natural beauty and friendliness are at the heart of everything you'll love about Hervey Bay. The pristine beaches and waters of the bay are clear, calm & safe, and rival any top-listed beaches of the world. When you arrive at the Esplanade and are gazing at 16km of sandy beaches and unbelievable aqua sea, your breath will slow and your body will relax. What an amazing place.
Hervey Bay is also the gateway to World Heritage-listed K’gari (formally Fraser Island), and Lady Elliot Island on the southern Great Barrier Reef. It is also uniquely home to the world’s first Whale Heritage Site – the only place where thousands of Humpback Whales stop during their migration between July and October to rest, socialise and play with their calves in the warm shallow waters of Hervey Bay and K’gari. Hervey Bay truly is Australia’s Capital for Whale Watching.

"The jet ski tour was a fantastic day! It is a superb showcase of the marine park and the Hervey Bay waterways. Stuart is an extremely professional guide and ensured every aspect of the trip was a great experience. We all loved it and will be back again."
"I just wanted to let you know I had a great time on the Island. Thank you so much for arranging it for me. Having everything organised for me was definitely the best way to go. I would not have been able to organise all that by myself."
