Whale watching in Queensland June - November

Can you speak whale? Witnessing the annual winter migration of these majestic mammals will leave you speaking in tongues.

Get up close to the majestic humpback whales as they migrate south along the North Queensland coast to the cool waters of Antarctica. There are any number of whale watching tours in Queensland, including the renowned humpback resting spot at Hervey Bay, where you can see these incredible creatures frolicking, breaching and gliding through the ocean. The elegant, mysterious dwarf minke whales chart an unknown voyage in the world’s oceans, but during the winter months, keen snorkelers and whale-watchers can venture out on live-aboard minke whale tours to the Ribbon Reef, north off Cairns, and swim with the whales for a truly unforgettable marine experience.
