Harvey Bay, Queensland, a coastal city in southern Queensland, is widely known as a site for observing humpback whales. Whale-watching boats operate during the July to November migration season. It's also a hub for tours to nearby Fraser Island, which has beaches and features a rainforest habitat for dingoes and other wildlife. A waterfront esplanade links the city's marina with beaches offering calm waters for swimming.
Urangan Pier is 868 meters long original length was 1124 meters was used to export Steam, Sugar and Coal in 1917. In the 1980's all exports stopped from this pier. The pier was threatened with demolition but it was saved! The pier was leased to the Harvey Bay Council for protection.
Many people we saw walking their dogs along the beach.
Photo below is of Terry Summers born in 1929 in England and is singing The Fisherman's Song.. a statue of him 'Duet' it's called.
Have no idea who Terry Summers was as I can't find any history about him.
Opposite the pier is a lovely lawned area and Cafe.
Hervey Bay has certainly been cleaned up since our last visit.
