The climate of Hervey Bay (Australia)
Hervey Bay is located on the coast in Queensland. Hervey Bay is known for the nearby Fraser Island. This national park is over 184000 acres. It is one of Australia’s wonders of the world and is a World Heritage. Fraser Island is a large sand island with beautiful nature. There are white sand beaches and over 100 fresh water lakes. Some of these lakes have a beautiful aqua blue colour. There is a large tropical rainforest on the island, several mangroves and some marshy lands. This makes for great variety in plant life and animal life. The coast line has beautiful white beaches. During hundreds of years the rocks have been beautifully shaped by the wind and the incoming and outgoing tides. The best way to discover this island is by four wheel drive. There are several campsites throughout the island. It is best not to go swimming in the sea because of the dangerous current and the danger of shark attacks. Besides the beautiful Fraser Island, Hervey Bay is also known for boat trips. These daytrips are organized to go whale spotting. Hervey Bay has a moderate sea climate with very little differences between the summer and the winter. During the summer average temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius. During the winter the average temperatures are around 23 degrees Celsius. Because the island is located near the tropical climate zone there are little differences in climate with a tropical climate.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
