Shot Of The Day: Get Mugged On Fraser!

HERVEY BAY: This is such a great shot (taken 01/08/12 by our mates Gerry and Terrina from Air Fraser Island) that we couldn't resist sharing. When a 40-tonne Humpback takes a shine to a particular boat, it's called a mugging... and Gerry and Terrina were well and truly mugged out on the water.  

They fly through the air with the greatest of ease… considering they’re 40-tonne Humpbacks and their babies are the length of a car… and Kingfisher Bay Resort can put you in the box seat for the show.

Hervey Bay’s Humpback Whale Watching season runs from 1 August till 31 October – and is one of only two places in the world where whales take time out from their migration to wallow and socialise in warm waters.

Kingfisher Bay Resort has released a ‘Fraser Plus Whales’ package for $379 per person twin share. This includes passenger ferry transfers from River Heads to the island, two nights’ resort hotel accommodation PLUS a FREE extra Night in World Heritage wilderness, hot buffet breakfasts and a half-day Whale Watch cruise to Platypus Bay (just north of the resort) with expert interpretive commentary by Brian Perry – the man who pioneered whale watching in Hervey Bay – and his team.

Self-contained villa accommodation at the resort is available from $195 per villa, per night.

For holidaymakers travelling to the Fraser Coast, there is the added bonus of the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island on the doorstep so whale watchers can combine the best nature has to offer with a visit to the island, all in the one holiday.
