Paddle Out For Whales

Text/HTML

Paddle Out for Whales - August 4, 2019.

Torquay Jetty & Ernie Organ Park, Torquay | 9:30am - 1pm

Bring your SUP, kayak or paddle board along to celebrate and encourage whale conservation in Hervey Bay, the whale watch capital of the world. Creativity is encouraged and the more colourful and quirky the better!

Paddle out into the ocean for a minute silence to recognise the importance of the ocean and whales to the world, and particularly the Fraser Coast. Leandra Gurbiel will be sharing the sacred Aloha Mai E chant during the event to honour the whales and their significance to the region.

Enjoy free face painting for kids and live music by Frank Benn, Aloha Ohana Hula Na Wahine and SeaNic Sounds throughout the day. Plus check out the Torquay Markets which will be held in Ernie Organ Park during the event! 

Register online today and receive a free tote and sunnies at the event, thanks to USC! To register, enter here.

You don’t have to paddle out, you just have to be there!
