Hervey Bay Queensland

DSCN5805

Hervey Bay /ˈhɑrvi ˈb/ is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city is situated approximately 290 kilometres (180 mi) or 4 hours north of the state capital, Brisbane, and lies on the coast of a natural bay between the Queensland mainland and nearby Fraser Island. The local economy relies on tourism, for which whale watching, Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island and Hervey Bay’s calm beaches are the major drawcards.
