Whale Watching

A WHALE OF A TAIL

You never forget the first time you see one. The enormous shadow shifting below the water. The sense of anticipation.

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.

FAR NORTH COAST 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.
