Whale Migration

{{slide.SlideTitle}}

Witness WHALES MIGRATing FROM May to December

May signals the beginning of the annual whale migration, as humpback and southern right whales make their way from the food-rich southern ocean to breeding grounds in the warm northern waters.

The whales then return south in November to the colder seas to grow and mature.

The whales follow the continental shelf, hugging the coast as they travel through the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, playfully breaching and showing off their water-skills and celebrating life just off shore.

There are many whale-watching cruises available as well as plenty of land-based lookouts with excellent vantage points.

In the South West region, a series of purpose-built towers have been erected to allow visitors to observe and record whale activity.

Perhaps ironically, you'll often see whales breaching only a few hundred metres from the slipway of Albany's old whaling station.
