Info about Hervey Bay


Hervey Bay is located on the eastern coast of Queensland. From 1854 to 1977, it was a part of Toogoom Run, a cattle station. Subsequently, it became a group of villages, and only in February 1984, it was proclaimed a city.
Located at a distance of around 300 km to the north of Brisbane, Hervey Bay has a population of 54,400. It derives its name from the water body Hervey Bay, which was named by Captain Cook. A major part of the region is hinterland, and thus, it has a rocky and coastal terrain with a lot of marine wildlife.
The city enjoys a subtropical climate with 29°C being the maximum average temperature in summer (January) and 22°C, the maximum average temperature in winter (July).
Hervey Bay’s economy is dependent mainly on the tourism, service, retailing and light industries. It is renowned for its cleanliness and safety.
