Through winter and as late as November visitors will have the opportunity to witness these acrobatic visitors as they first travel up the coast to the warm coral sea waters and then back down to their Antarctic feeding grounds.
Hervey Bay is internationally recognized as a prime whale-watching destination and there's never been a better time to visit. Since 1992 the number of whales entering the bay has increased from under 2000 to around 7000.
As the oldest whale-watching destination in Australia, the expertise and professionalism of the operators in Hervey Bay are second to none. There are about six operators offering whale-watching tours out of Hervey Bay's Urangan Harbour, with a range of options including half and full day tours.
