    Hervey Bay is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city is situated approximately 290 kilometres 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. In 2008, Hervey Bay was the fastest growing statistical division in the country.
