Whale Watching in Australia

Like clockwork, as the calendar flips over to May each year, one of nature's most amazing migrations takes place, as thousands of Humpback, Southern Right and various other species of whale make their way up (and back down) Australia's coastlines. Dozens of destinations provide the chance to catch a glimpse of these massive - yet gentle - giants of the ocean, as they stop to rest, play, and rear their young before heading back to Antarctic waters.

Each year, we pause to celebrate the launch of Australia's whale watching season, and this year we're kicking things up a notch with in-depth whale watching guides, great deals on whale watching tours and cruises, and a handful of awesome giveaways that could see you and the family heading out to see the whales with some of the country's top operators.
