The time has come! Hervey Bay Whale Festival is just around the corner and you can put yourself at the centre of the excitement with our holiday Hervey Bay accommodation at Boat Harbour Resort.
From July to November on the Fraser Coast, Hervey Bay comes to life as thousands of humpback whales can be seen migrating just off the coast, offering the perfect opportunity to see the world’s most majestic mammals firsthand! This unmissable time of the year is celebrated with the annual Hervey Bay Whale Festival, and it’s all set to return this August at our coastal location in Hervey Bay Urangan.
Hervey Bay Whale Festival arrives hand-in-hand with a full lineup of thrilling events, including Hervey Bay Ocean Festival, Hervey Bay Seafood Festival, Fraser Coast Kite Karnival and more. During this time, family-friendly entertainment, seafood stalls and a whole host of activities take over the streets and landmarks, making it the single best time to visit the Fraser Coast throughout the year!
On July 27, don’t miss the Blessing of the Fleet, which will kick off Hervey Bay Whale Festival 2019 with cultural entertainment, market stalls and fireworks on top of a colourful boat parade. On August 3, Whale Parade and Concert will continue the festivity with live music, carnival rides and dazzling costumes on Charlton Esplanade - a must-attend event with lots to see for all the family.
On August 4, join Paddle Out for the Whales, where you can bring your own kayak or floatable and join hundreds of others on the water, and on August 10, enjoy the incredible atmosphere at Fraser Coast Kite Karnival to marvel at more than 300 novelty kites flying high in the sky!
Last but not least on August 11, savour the Fraser Coast’s famous seafood cuisine at Hervey Bay Seafood Festival 2019 - a must-attend annual food festival at picturesque Urangan Boat Harbour.
