Who’s the biggest act in Australia this summer? Forget Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. The biggest act of the summer down under is Harvey and the Humpbacks! From July to November, Queensland’s Fraser Coast will be rocking to the tune of Harvey and his band of 7,000 Humpbacks as they drop in during their 10,000km migration and put on a show not to be missed.
Tourism Queensland has launched a $400,000 campaign to attract families to Hervey Bay.
From the press release:
Not only in town to perform to sell-out crowds, Harvey and the Humpbacks will be hard at work on a hit new song that will travel through migrating pods around the world. Researchers at The University of Queensland have found that male humpback whales ‘change their tune’ every year during their migration across the Pacific. UQ PhD student Ellen Garland said, just like rock stars, no humpback wants to become irrelevant. “We believe the song is continually changing because the males wish to be novel or slightly different to the male singing next to them.”
