  • There are 8 whale watching tours departing from Hervey Bay daily from mid-July to late October. We have listed 5 most popular tours on our package page.

    Tours vary in duration, style and vessel meaning there is plenty to choose from and your sure to find the right tour for you.

  • The whale watching season in Hervey Bay runs from middle July - late October. The best time to whale watch in Hervey Bay is from early August to late September when the whales can be seen with their calves and are at their most playful and plentiful.

  • Hervey Bay is widely regarded as the best place to watch humpback whales in the world. From July to November Hervey Bay has whales everywhere, resting and playing in the calm waters sheltered by World Heritage listed Fraser Island. The whales are so relaxed here and in such great numbers that it is simply the best place to watch whales in Australia, if not the world.

  • Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge office hours are 7:00am to 8:00pm Monday to Friday, and 8:00am to 6:00pm on Saturday & Sunday. You can always reach us by email or phone.



Yong and Bo organised both Fraser Island and Whale tours for us at very short notice. All went well thanks to their care.

Emeraldene Inn is a great place to stay. It is a quiet oasis with the rooms set in a garden that is more jungle than garden. Rooms are spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Best suited to those with a car as you will need to drive to shops and restaurants. This is normal in Hervey Bay as the town has no real centre and facilities are scattered. A comfortable and relaxing place to stay.


Although located by a main road, the Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge was a place like paradise. The courtyard was full of various plants and flowers, which was beautiful and peaceful. The room was quite clean, the beds were comfortable, and the small kitchen with tableware was very convenient for the tourists.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They could arrange various local tourism projects for tourists - such as Fraser Island Two-day tour and Whale Watching, etc.- that was really good! I would happily stay here again.


Emeraldene were awesome, Yong & her husband who run the inn are really friendly and organised our whole tour to Fraiser with the explorer adventure team which was fantastic.
We communicated with Yong on the days leading up to the tour telling her how many people we had and what we needed etc and she took care of everything and allowed us to leave our belonging at the inn whilst we went to Fraiser.
The room was nice & had everything 3 back packers could need, and it was also really clean.
Would definitely recommend!


Thank you Yong and Bo for your warm welcome and the hospitality, so we enjoyed everything at your motel. The room is clean and comfortable with very competitive price.

The only pity seems one-night staying was too short and rush so next time we may stay longer. Heyvey bay is a beautiful place and whale watching is an unforgettable experience.
