Whale Watching in Warrnambool

Home > Melbourne > Weekend Escapes | Nature
Now is an ideal time to head down to Warrnambool, located on Victoria's scenic west coast, and known as “Victoria’s Southern Right Whale Nursery”.

From June to September every year, female Southern Right whales make their way back to Logans Beach to bear their young, often spotted playing and teaching their calves only 100metres from the shore.

On the morning of 14th of May 2009, visitors to Warrnambool spotted a large mature adult Southern Right Whale in front of the Logan's Beach platform. A great start to the season, Warrnambool locals are hoping this is a sign of many more sightings to come.

The platform at Logan's Beach is a specially constructed platform ideal for whale watching, and is even fitted with binoculars for your prime viewing.

And if these wonderful creatures aren't swimming past on your chosen day, there is plenty more to see or do at Warrnambool, including a visit to Flagstaff Hill, Tower Hill, Allansford Cheese World, and plenty of sight-seeing and shopping.

If you prefer to not rush your day out, check out some accommodation ideas.
