Help us celebrate the start of the whale watch season and a whole month of festivities in honour of the Humpback Whale. Whale Watch Operators join with local businesses dockside at the Urangan Harbour to host an evening of food and entertainment culminating in a fireworks spectacular.

Paddle Out for Whales is an annual event held in the whale watching capital of the world as part of IFAW's National Whale Day celebrations. The event is held to help raise awareness of the many issues whales face today.

This popular local festival celebrates the bounty of the seas in and around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island - it really is the ultimate weekend escape.

Seafront Oval comes alive with five hours of awesome music from a fantastic line up - Australian artists playing all original music with a 50/50 mix of local Fraser Coast musicians and other invited performers.

Don’t miss the amazing spectacle as we celebrate with a symbolic whale migration along Charlton Esplanade. Glowing, shining, beaming and sparkling for a cause the Hervey Bay community come together annually for the much loved Illumination Parade.
