This region has two of Queensland’s signature attractions: Hervey Bay, a large resort town with the best whale-watching in Australia, and Fraser Island, a nature-based holiday destination just offshore. Offering spectacular white beaches, coloured sand cliffs, dunes, creeks, lakes, wildflower heathland and rainforest, Fraser is best explored by four-wheel drive or on foot. Hervey Bay offers a range of accommodation and other facilities. The heritage town of Maryborough and the calm waters of Great Sandy Strait are among the region’s other attractions.

We focus on whale-watching. At the start of winter, humpback whales begin migrating to the warmer waters of Hervey Bay. Visitors are never far behind them, many making their way up the coast for the chance to see these amazing creatures offshore. Each year around 2000 humpback whales migrates from the Antarctic to Australia’s eastern subtropical coast. Between July and November, up to 400 rest and regroup in Hervey Bay. For an up-close view of the majestic whales, various tours operate from the boat harbour in town.
