Continue north from Maryborough today towards the seaside hub of Hervey Bay. In Hervey Bay, make sure you visit the Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere and become immersed in the incredible world of the humpback whale with an 'underwater whale' encounter.
The Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere provides an immersive and educational experience on all things natural within the Fraser Coast. In Hervey Bay you can also enjoy the many waterfront parks, playgrounds and cafes that make up 16 kilometres of beachfront parkland pathways that are perfect for cycling. Alternatively, you can hire a kayak or jet ski and explore an aquatic playground.
Those travelling with children will love Hervey Bay's free water education park, 'Wetside', where they can get soaked by the giant water bucket or learn to surf on the Board Rider.
To finish the day, take a relaxing sunset cruise exploring the Great Sandy Strait. Not only will you witness a magical sunset, you are also likely to see dolphins, birdlife and possible dugongs. Check in to your accommodation for the night in Hervey Bay, where there are a variety of accommodation styles to suit your needs.
