When people think of islands they think of sunshine, swimming and heat. So, why would you visit an island in the winter? At Tangalooma Island Resort, there are many reasons to take a vacation to the island, no matter what time of year it is.
The biggest draw card for visiting Tangalooma Island in winter is the whale watching cruises available each day. Due to their migration habits, whales are most likely to be seen cavorting in the waters around Australia between June and October, making winter the only time you can see these fantastic animals in the flesh. Whether you go to the island for one day or a whole week, this is one experience you shouldn’t miss if you plan to visit Tangalooma Island in the cooler months.
The cool weather in winter lends itself to leisurely walks and explorations of the Tangalooma area, making guided walks more popular than ever. You can join one of the resort’s qualified eco rangers on a guided walk, allowing you to learn a little more about the island and enjoy the beautiful Tangalooma flora and fauna, all while getting the pulse running and warming up a cold day.
One of the most popular activities on Tangalooma Island is their nightly dolphin feeding. The wild dolphin feeding program is an opportunity to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures, allowing you to wade into the shallow waters, feed a wild dolphin and even get a photo. The wild dolphin feeding experience is included in some day cruise and accommodation packages booked through Tangalooma.
Tangalooma Island Resort also has a wide range of free activities you can participate in all year round. These include bush walks, animal presentations, tennis, basketball, cricket, swimming, karaoke night, bingo night and much more.

Going on holidays should involve relaxing, particularly when it is bitter cold outside. Tangalooma Island Resort has a massage and beauty hut that can make you feel like royalty. Treatments include massages, manicures and pedicures, facials and other detox and body treatments. After your treatment, you can exit onto the sand and take a relaxing walk up the beach to your apartment or villa.
