Whale watching – a once in a lifetime experience

Every year many of the large whales in the southern hemisphere follow a similar migration pattern. Summer is spent in the chilly waters of Antarctica until autumn when the temperature falls and the large sea bound mammals begin their northward migration to more temperate locations. Consequently, whales are most likely to be seen frolicking in the waters around Australia between June and October. About forty species of whales and dolphins in total have been recorded in Australian waters.

Whale watching is a wonderful activity many enjoy in winter and spring, with many prime viewing spots along the coast of Queensland. The majesty and great size of whales along with their graceful and playful movements and sounds will astound both children and adults alike, making it the perfect family activity. Moreton Bay is one common area many choose to view these magnificent creatures from. Tangalooma Island Resort is a world renowned and popular tourist destination, , offering Tangalooma cruises to view the whales from the comfort of luxury catamaran water vessels.
