Australia & New Zealand
Whale watching is a highly popular pastime in Australia, as the direction of the annual whale migration from south to north and back again means the majestic marine mammals pass right alongside many of the popular coastal destinations in Australia as they head to warmer waters to both give birth to and raise their young. Whale watching has thus become a huge industry in Australia as hundreds of thousands of people flock to the waters each year to catch a sight of these ocean giants up close and witness their surprisingly playful and curious natures firsthand.
With a myriad of popular whale watching locations throughout the country including Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Hervey Bay and even Sydney, during the period of late July to early November there is typically a whale watching operator within easily reachable distance of either your home or holiday destination. Simply browse the range of available whale watching experiences below and get out on the water to take part in this must-do ocean adventure!
