Hervey Bay Whale Festival July 2014

The annual Hervey Bay Whale Festival bookends the start and end of our famous whale-watching season which runs from mid July to end of October. We love celebrating the humpback whales here on Queensland’s Fraser Coast. The launch of the Whale Season incorporates ‘Paddle out for Whales’ on 19 July, where the crowds paddle out into the ocean on all manner of flotation devices to celebrate the whales and raise conservation awareness issues to protect these amazing marine mammals. The Blessing of the Fleet brings the Hervey Bay marina precinct alive with activity. This tradition of a blessing for the vessels on the water and the safety of whale and human alike is followed by a spectacular fireworks display in a setting that is second to none. The Illumination parade is a local favourite as a family atmosphere to be remembered along the Hervey Bay Esplanade and in 2014 we’re finishing things off with the rocking Whale Aid concert to finish things off in style for our giant yet gentle friends.

  Pictures taken on the Hervey Bay Esplanade and as the day goes on activities will escalate Fireworks will finish the day and the Goodbye Whale festivities will be sometime in October
