Hervey Bay

We enjoyed our stay at Point Vernon in Hervey Bay. We road our bikes along the numerous bike paths along the esplanade. We had to wait 6 days for the strong winds to subside enough for us to do a whale watching cruise. This was a most enjoyable whale watching trip with many whales and calves seen - several very close to our boat. The hump back whales were very active and we even heard them sing - via the boats microphone in the sea. Hervey Bay is a busy town - they have 1.6 million visitors each year. the town seems to thrive on whale watching and Fraser island tourists who depart from here.
