Travellers Flock to Australia for Whale Migration

Between May and November, visitors and locals can spot Humpback, Southern Right, Minke and Blue Whales from many scenic spots along Australia’s east and west coastlines.

From Margaret River to the Eyre Peninsula and Port Phillip Bay to Hervey Bay, whale watching tours are heralding the first sightings of these gentle giants during their migration.

Margaret River is a small town south of Perth in Western Australia, known for its craft breweries, beaches and surf break. Meanwhile, Eyre Peninsula is a triangular peninsula in South Australia, Port Phillip, is a large bay in southern Victoria and Hervey Bay is a coastal city in southern Queensland.

All four regions are known to host migratory whales and thus are popular among travellers seeking to observe the mammals.
