Scenery/Natural Sights - Hervey Bay whales, Qld, Australia [Whales]

Back to Map 

Visited: Early Aug

As a migrant from far off cold places to Queensland I can understand why the whales like Hervey Bay's calm warm and sunny waters as a place to hang around for a while. There are a lot of places to watch whales around the world, this place has the advantages of calm, warm and generally still waters. The intriguing bit is the realisation that you are as much watching as being watched.
