It has been described as the World’s Humpback Whale Watching Capital of the World and of course gateway to the largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island.Hervey Bay is fortunate to lie in a natural bay between Queensland’s mainland and Fraser Island creating calm waters which is a drawcard for young families.

We experience a mild sub-tropical climate with temperatures of 30C degrees in summer and 24C in winter.
Our population is approximately 60,000 which is a blend of young families and retirees.
