Accommodation in Hervey Bay caters for a huge visitor influx that peaks in the winter and early spring when the humpback whales come and visit the calm waters of Hervey Bay. The town comes alive at this time when a dozen or so modern charter boats conduct daily trips from the Urangan Boat harbour into the beautiful waterway between Fraser Island and the mainland. The Australian East coast population of Humpback Whales now numbers around 15000 animals and most of these visit Hervey Bay during the winter months and early spring to mate and raise their young before the return migration back to Antarctic waters.
Hervey Bay itself is a modern city with excellent shopping and sixteen kilometers of esplanade that is home to many new apartment style resorts that make up the bulk of the holiday accommodation on offer. There are now twenty opr so of these resorts that have all been built in the last five years or so and they can provide accommodation that is suitable for either couples or families ant very affordable rates. Several of these are located right on the Urangan boat habour while others have frontage onto the esplanade and the main beach.
