Framed by the Fraser Coast, it’s little wonder Antarctica’s humpback whales migrate to the warm waters of Hervey Bay every year. And just offshore, sits Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island.
Learn all about the beauty of this region with a visit to the Fraser Coast Discovery Sphere. Interpretive panels and interactive displays are designed to educate visitors on the beauty and diversity of the Great Sandy Biosphere.
The centre also offers an immersive “underwater encounter” with the humpback whales, as well as a full-size reproduction of a whale skeleton.
The Dreamtime stories, artwork and traditions of the local Butchulla are also interwoven throughout the experience. Kids will love a dedicated children’s section with storytelling and interactive challenges and a selfie with the giant whale sculpture.
