We are gearing up for another fantastic month of celebrations in honour of the
Humpback Whale. Our key events are set and available to start planning. We will be adding to the line up of festivities regularly over the next few months so stay tuned.
The best way to keep up to date is to like us on facebook and recieve
updates as they occur.
Hervey Bay, Queensland is the 'Home of the Humpback' and the Humpback Whale watching capital of the world. Its pristine waters play host to this majestic mammal annually and to celebrate, the Bay comes alive for the month of August. Hosting events incorporating live music, workshops, an illumination parade, lectures, aquatic events, arts, sculpture, carnival rides and fireworks, it’s 40 tonne of fun.
