Miles of pristine sandy beaches along Queensland’s southeastern coast draw travelers year after year. First discovered by Captain James Cook, Hervey Bay has become one of the most relaxing and laid-back locales one can unwind in while visiting Australia.

A trip to Hervey Bay is without a doubt about enjoying the coast and the easy lifestyle that comes with it. Calm waters make for ideal swimming conditions, while picturesque beaches beckon travelers to simply lay out for an afternoon and soak up some Australian sun. Serene water conditions and general atmosphere in Hervey Bay make this a popular vacation spot for families and backpackers alike.

The most popular activity in Hervey Bay, though, is to catch a boat ride out onto the waters to see the numerous humpback whales who swim in the area during their annual migration. Whale-watching season runs from June through November, though most will agree that the best months to catch sight of these massive marine mammals are August, September and October. Many tour operators offer whale-watching excursions from Hervey Bay.

Aside from whale watching, visitors to Hervey Bay also shouldn’t miss a day trip to the nearby Fraser Island, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just off the mainland’s coast, Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, where rain forests whimsically spring up from sand dunes across the island. Fraser Island boasts more than 150 miles of sandy beaches in all.

Another nautical-themed must? Vic Hislop’s Shark Show, a quirky museum dedicated to all things shark. From the wide-open shark mouth that serves as the museum door to the 18-foot Great White on display, this shark-themed attraction gives visitors a newfound appreciation for the predator of the sea.
