What Would You Like To Experience?

Hervey Bay

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.

Traditional Custodians

We acknowledge the Butchulla people, the traditional custodians of this land and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Experience Hervey Bay acknowledges Butchulla lore:

  • What is good for the land comes first
  • Do not take or touch anything that does not belong to you
  • If you have plenty, you must share
