Weekly Whale Report

Latest Sightings


“Hervey Bay is an absolutely globally unique location for Humpback Whales - geographically there is no place like Hervey Bay on any other Humpback migratory path anywhere in the world”
– Dr Wally Franklin, Whale researcher in Hervey Bay for 25 years and founder of the Oceania Project.

Join Australia's original Whale Watch operators for the experience of a lifetime with magnificent Humpback Whales in the best Whale watching location in Australia, Hervey Bay. 

Why should you go Whale Watching in Hervey Bay?

Hervey Bay is a haven for these large Cetaceans and has been named as the first “Whale Heritage Site” in the world, as the area is a rare and protected stopover site for these migrating marine mammals. Numbers of Humpback whales once dwindled, but now their populations are increasing by around 11% annually, meaning we see more and more each year! Hervey Bay has become world famous for its incredible whale encounters, in particular, a behaviour called “mugging” where the whales lift their heads out of the water to take a good look at you!
