Whales in Australia

Humpback whales and southern right wales can be seen off Australia’s coastline. Humpback whales can be seen as they migrate north along the east coast past Byron Bay and Hervey Bay from May to November. Marvel at their graceful acrobatics and listen to the haunting underwater song on a hydrophone on one of the many whalewatching tours you can take from Sydney to Hervey Bay.

See Southern Right whales mate and calve in the nursery waters of Warrnambool on the Great Ocean Road or as they arrive from Antarctic waters with humpback whales in the picturesque Great Oyster Bay of Tasmania. You can watch these slow, graceful whales migrate up the Western Australian coastline from Geographe Bay, Dunsborough and Albany. Or spot these endangered creatures - once hunted almost to extinction - from the Head of Bight whale sanctuary or Victor Harbor in South Australia.
