The legendary Pacific Coast of Australia is the perfect place to witness the wonder of the world’s gentle giants during their annual migration from the south to the warmer waters in the north.
From June to November, you can see these magnificent, and in some cases, endangered, species from either land or sea.
Many great land-based whale-watching sites can be found along the eastern coastline – at perfect sandy beaches, on the top of towering sand dunes and rocky headlands and near coastal lakes and estuaries.
For a greater chance at spotting a whale, take a cruise. Cruises offer the opportunity to see humpbacks, minke whales, southern right whales, sei and Bryde’s whales as well as many other types of marine life. Operators constantly monitor the whale migration and provide the best views.
