Whale Watching

Whale Watching at Cape Byron Lighthouse
Searching for whales from Cape Byron Lighthouse, just a short walk away from Reflections Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach.

Of course we’re talking whales. And specifically, whale watching along the NSW coast.

Between May and August, whales make their way north from icy Antarctica to warmer waters to breed. During the spring, they journey back down the coast with their calves in tow, providing plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of these awesome creatures.

Whilst many types of whale migrate annually,  it’s usually the Humpback and Southern Right whales you’re most likely to see when whale watching NSW.


Byron Bay offers some of the best whale watching around. Stay at Clarkes Beach and look for whales from the sand, then visit the Cape Byron Lighthouse for its far-reaching ocean views. You can also go on a whale watching cruise, or enjoy a sea kayak tour for an unforgettable encounter.

With its unspoiled beaches and lush vegetation, the Coffs Coast is an idyllic spot for a whale watching adventure. Moonee Beach and the nearby ‘Look at Me Now’ headland walk are standout whale watching spots.  You can also stretch out your sea legs with a whale watching tour from Coffs Harbour.

With ocean lookouts far and wide, whale watching is a popular pastime along the NSW Mid Coast. Bonny Hills in Greater Port Macquarie is perched atop a headland with whale-friendly views. Or stay at Jimmys Beach near Port Stephens and climb nearby Mount Yacaaba to see what you can see.
