Hervey Bay Gateway to Fraser Island

At the heart of the beautiful Fraser Coast, Hervey Bay caters for a lifestyle that dreams are built upon. Clean, calm beaches, safe for all aquatic sports, come alive during winter when the whales arrive. Visit Hervey Bay, the stepping stone for Fraser Island tours and the whale watching capital of Australia.

Whales have their calves in the warmer tropical waters due to the new arrivals having no heat absorbing blubber, which keeps the cold Antarctic waters from freezing the whales while hunting for their favorite food, Krill.

From July to November, humpback whales migrate along the east coast of Australia, with the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay being ideal for mating and delivering the new born calves. Virtually free of predators, the calves are able to thrive before returning to the Antarctic ocean for summer food.

While the whale watching is probably what has put Hervey Bay on the map, it is the lifestyle and laid back atmosphere that keep people returning, time and again. Couple this idyllic lifestyle with fabulous accommodation, great food and superb beaches and you are almost in paradise. We haven't even mentioned that the world's largest sand island, Fraser Island, is right on the doorstep to Hervey Bay.

Relax at Enzos On The Beach. Accommodation is superb, with the city boasting beachfront caravan parks, all types of budget accommodation and luxury plus apartments. There are large resorts situated along the beach esplanade and luxurious units located at the marina complex.

Dining in Hervey Bay is an unforgettable experience. There are many superb restaurants situated at the marina complex and stretching right along the esplanade to Point Vernon. Seafood, Mexican, Asian, Italian, you name it, Hervey Bay has it.

Among our favorites that we would highly recommend are The Deck Restaurant & Bar on the Whale Bay Marina and if you are into Italian food, (who isn't?) don't go past Viva Italia Pizza & Pasta on the esplanade at Urangan.

Another we highly recommend is Gringos Mexican Cantina on the Esplanade at Torquay. There are many others that are equally as good, which makes Hervey Bay a diners delight. Our Hervey Bay restarant review has more suggestions where the food is good and the service is great.

And just a suggestion, take a stroll along the esplanade and have a coffee or full breakfast right on the beach at Enzos. Fabulous coffee and fabulous views. What a way to start the day!

Take a tour of Fraser Island, hire a jet ski, go fishing, shop at one of the large shopping centres, take a dip at the beach, visit the Hervey Bay Aquarium or do a bit of serious photography near the rocks at Point Vernon. Whatever you choose, there are many things to do in Hervey Bay that will relax and refresh your inner being and make your stay something special.
