Hervey Bay ( ) is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city is situated approximately 290 km (180.2 mi) 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. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia.

Hervey Bay, Queensland Video

If your impatient the most intense part is from 1:30 to 2:40, however the beginning sets the scene well and gives it an ominous and dramatic mood so I recommend watching the whole thing ;) I recorded this from the Greyhound bus on our way from Airlie Beach to Hervey Bay, believe it was close to Rockhampton. The fires were burning all the way down to the road and I could actually feel the heat from the flames inside of the bus. Apparently the fires had been raging for some twenty odd days in the area by then. This capture was made on the evening of 20th Oct 2009. From the look of it the firefighters had initiated a hazard reduction burn to stop a much larger fire from spreading further. As long as the wind was blowing to the same direction I presume they would keep the road open.

An ORV (Off Road Vehicle) lovers delight! This is some footage from our trip to Oz a few years back. This is the largest sand island in the world and is only accessible to 4WD vehicles - such a great place to go camping! I would love to go back sometime with a dirtbike!

Back in 1987, Hervey Bay was just a quiet coastal town... until an enterprising skipper swapped his usual fishing charter for a tourist trip to see the humpback whales. Today it`s called "the whale watch capital of the world". This is the intro to our "Whale Tales Of Hervey Bay" series of films, up on my channel as "The Oceania Project" playlist:
