Join in on the celebration of the beauty of the ocean and all it has to offer, at the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival! Hervey Bay is famous for its connection with humpback whales, unbelievably fresh local seafood and a cracking seaside vibe.

The main events of the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival include the Blessing of the Fleet, Paddle Out for Whale, Hervey Bay Seafood Festival, Whale Parade and Concert.

There is nothing that can compare to the awe-inspiring, up-close whale watching encounters that are found in Hervey Bay. Every year, between July and November, thousands of humpback whales travel the “humpback highway” and arrive in the calm, protected waters of Hervey Bay.

But unlike other stops in the humpback highway, it is only in Hervey Bay that the whales stop to rest, socialise and play before continuing their trip back to the Antarctic for the summer months.

This is one of the main reasons the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival is celebrated – the relationship of Hervey Bay and the humpback whales is truly noteworthy.

During these months, whale tours are offered in Hervey Bay.

This year, the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival will be from 11-20 August 2017. There are plenty of events to go to and see the magnificence of Hervey Bay and the ocean!

Our Urangan accommodation is located in the world-famous whale-watching capital of Hervey Bay. Boat Harbour Resort, our Hervey Bay holiday accommodation, offers a range of self-contained studio units and two bedroom villas that are each equipped with all your needs for a great holiday.
