About Hervey Bay Whale Watching

Whale Watching in Hervey Bay is one of Australia's must do attractions. Widley regarded as one of the best whale watching destinations in the world, Hervey Bay is second to none in terms of whale watching.

Whale season

The humpback whale season in Hervey Bay is from mid July to early November. We like to think the whales are having a holiday in Hervey Bay, taking a break from their long migration along the Australian coast.

Hervey Bay is fondly known as "The Whale Watch Capital of the World", for good reason. Thousands of whales visit the bay between Fraser Island and the Mainland each season.

Deals & Packages

Whale watching packages are available including accommodation in Hervey Bay or Fraser Island.

Fraser Island day tour packages are also available with your Hervey Bay whale watch.
