Hervey Bay Whale Festival 2022
Event July 29
There is no other place in the world that compares to the awe-inspiring, soul-stirring, up-close whale watching encounters that you will find in Hervey Bay.
Between July and November, thousands of humpback whales travel the ‘humpback highway’ and arrive in the calm, protected waters of Hervey Bay.
Unlike any other place along the ‘humpback highway’, the whales will stop and spend up to 10 days, resting, socialising and playing before continuing their trip back to the Antarctic for the summer months.
This unique relationship gives reason to celebrate each year with the Hervey Bay Whale Festival. An eclectic event to recognise the importance of the ocean to Hervey Bay and promote the conservation of the marine environment and animals that are unique and important to the region.
The festival includes a calendar of colourful events that include:
29 July 2022 – Blessing of the Fleet
31 July 2022 – Paddle Out for Whales
31 July 2022 – Whale Concert and Family Parade
13 Aug 2022 – Hervey Bay Seafood Festival
