An exciting and meaningful celebration of Hervey Bay’s coastal community and the strong link between humans and the natural environment, the much-anticipated Hervey Bay Whale Festival has continued to attract locals and tourists alike to experience an extraordinary occasion that runs during this whale watch season.
A bigger and better celebration for this year, the Hervey Bay Whale Festival has been extended, starting from July to November. All throughout this whale watch season, exciting and fun events will take place in Hervey Bay. Massive festivities will be happening throughout this season including the recently concluded International Paddle Out for Whales event, which gathered hundreds of people paddling out into the ocean in their kayaks, canoes and makeshift boats and formed a circle for a minute of silence. The event served as Australia’s biggest anti-whaling campaign to promote conservation awareness and protection of these wonderful sea creatures. The Ocean of Fun Fest was also held, which showcased the creativity and brilliance of local artists and brought so much joy and cheers to those who witnessed the event. The Ocean of Fun Fest also featured master sculptor Dennis Massoud, who shared his genius to everyone in the event with his world-class sand sculpture installation as celebrated conservationist Jeann
ie Lawson shared her expertise in a hands-on workshop, The Web of Life.
The Blessing of the Fleet, meanwhile, will happen on 9 August and will further light up the Hervey Bay marina precinct with fun and entertaining activities.
One of the favourite of both locals and visitors, The Illumination parade that will take place along the Hervey Bay Esplanade and Seafront Oval on 4 October will feature the Whale Aid concert to cap off this festival in a more festive celebration.
