A Whale of a Time in Australia

When it comes to learning about the vibrant wildlife of Australia, you have to think big - so you may as well start big. Really big!

 

Australia is undoubtedly one of the best places in the world to see whales and you can often do so from the coastline, be it beaches or cliff-faces. You can catch a glimpse of whales from as early as late April, when southern right whales venture up to more temperate waters to breed around Southern Australia and Victoria. The more energetic Humpback Whales with continue north though, to the warmer waters found along the east and west coasts. This means that between May and November, you'll be able to head to a number of scenic spots along Australia's coastline and catch a glimpse of these almighty creatures.

 

In Western Australia, the south coast is the place to be for a real chance at catching a glimpse at some whales. From early June, you'll be able to find Humpback and southern right whales frolicking in Augusta's Flinders Bay. Alternatively, head to Geographe Bay, Dunsborough in September and you might just spot rare blue whales and their calves joining bottlenosed dolphins for a swim.

 

Journey to New South Wales and cruise out of Sydney Harbour and into the heads, to greet humpbacks from May until as late as November. Again, Sydney is somewhere that offers unique vantage points to do some spotting from the land, with Byron Bay a particular favourite in June time. For the best look though, the Cape Byron Lighthouse looms over the shoreline where the whales play just a few hundred metres away.

 

 

For a truly unforgettable experience and something a little different, head to Ningaloo Reef for an up close and personal date with the biggest shark in the world - the whale shark. With tours operating from mid-March until mid-September, you'll have plentiful opportunities to learn, explore and enjoy this unique opportunity. Dive the Ningaloo reef and interact with the phenomenal marine wildlife as you build up to the moment where you come face to face with the majestic whale sharks.
