What to do in Hervey Bay, Queensland

Say hello to Hervey Bay, where you can soak up the sun and sink your toes into the soft sand at safe swimming beaches, sheltered by Fraser Island. Walk the historic Urangan Pier or stroll the flat pathways of the beachfront esplanade, dotted with seaside cafes and picnic spots, while enjoying stunning views.

Cast a line into the crystal-clear waters  which lap nearby jetties and host an incredible variety of fish. Dine at the water's edge on succulent fresh seafood or across the road at the Bay's many quality restaurants. If you prefer a steak, there are loads of family-friendly hotels or clubs to choose from.

Don't forget! Hervey Bay is renowned as the best place in Australia, if not the world, for whale watching encounters. If you're visiting us between July and November you can't miss out on this once in a lifetime experience.
