With its mammoth coastline and tropical waters, Australia is one of the best places for whales on their migration from their southerly base. In fact, on their journey northwards, those taking an easterly route tend to stay within five kilometres from Australian shores in order to miss the East Australian Current.
More than 45 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises can be seen from Australia’s coastline, with over half of the world’s whales inhabiting our seas.
Most commonly spotted are humpback and southern right whales, but orcas, minke and blue whales also splash and glide through Australia’s seas. Unsurprisingly, this makes it one of the best countries in the world for whale watching. During their migration season, you can often see mothers and calves playing, humpbacks breaching and southern right whales spy hopping all for free, from safe headlands and public boardwalks.
This trip will take you and your faithful camper from Byron Bay up through Queensland to the Whitsunday Islands, and past a whole lot of natural marvel in between. So grab your binoculars, some comfy shoes, a bottle of water, a hat and something to munch on, then head to Byron Bay.
