Between May and November, you can spot whales from many scenic spots along Australia’s east and west coastlines. Sydney-based editor, journalist and photographer Rachelle Mackintosh has a love for wildlife and a particular penchant for spotting humpback whales as they migrate along the coast of Australia. Rachelle has done everything from tracking wild tigers in Siberia to photographing polar bears on the tundra in northern Canada, but when she’s at home in Australia, she turns her attention to the ocean – taking photos for her wildlife blog Faunographic.
Rachelle has given us her top spots for spotting whales in Australia — from Eden in New South Wales and Queensland's Hervey Bay to Western Australia’s Coral Coast.
