Catch a glimpse of these beautiful creatures
Head of Bight is the place to be if you are a whale watching buff. Over the winter months, Southern Right Whales make their way to our waters for the breeding season. The protected bay around the Head of Bight area is perfect for their females to give birth. Hence one of the best places to catch a glimpse of these beautiful creatures.

We were there in early June and the whales have started to arrive. We spotted a couple of them fairly close to the viewing platforms where we were standing. The boardwalks and viewing platforms are just a short walk away from the entrance and easily accessible with wheelchairs available free of charge if required.

Besides the whales, you will be amazed by the natural beauty surrounding that region. The Bunda Cliffs are indeed awe-inspiring. From the WA/SA Border Village to the Head of Bight, the cliffs extend about a hundred kilometres along the Great Australian Bight. And you can clearly see them from the viewing platforms too.

Head of Bight is approximately 1100km from Adelaide and about 3 to 4 hours' drive west from Ceduna along the Eyre Highway. I would definitely recommend the visit if you're heading that direction. Well worth it for sure.
