The whales stay and play from July - November

Say hello to the best whale watching in Australia in the calm waters of Hervey Bay, sheltered by Fraser Island. Every year from late July to early November majestic humpbacks turn this bay into their marine playground as they take a break on their 5000km migration from Antarctica to the tropics.

Scientific studies confirm whales stay and play in Hervey Bay for up to 10 days, which makes whale-watching around here such a unique experience.

Mums brings their babies close to the boats to introduce their offspring and then show off as they teach their calves to breach, spy-hop and fin slip. We guarantee you will be left breathless by this amazing spectacle.

And for the really adventurous, you can jump into the water and swim with these giant, 40-tonne mammals. 

Why is Hervey Bay Australia's #1 whale watching destination?
