Hervey Bay is often referred to as the whale watching capital of the world, with its impressive annual whale watching season from August to November. The Hervey Bay Whale Festival is held in August. Hervey Bay is 300km north of Brisbane (3 1/2 hours drive, 34 minutes flight) just north of Maryborough. Hervey Bay is also the access to Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world and Lady Elliot Island, the southern-most point of the Great Barrier Reef.
