Hervey Bay Whale Festival

Hervey Bay, Queensland is the Humpback Whale watching capital of the world. Its pristine waters play host to this majestic mammal annually and to celebrate, the Bay comes alive for the month of August. 

Hosting events incorporating live music, markets, workshops, an illumination parade, lectures, aquatic events, arts, sculpture, carnival rides, fireworks and fun, it’s fabulous for everyone.

This year festival is bigger and better and now spans a full month. The month of August is packed with a range of events for everyone.
