Whales have begun arriving along Albany’s coast on their long annual migration from the Antarctic to warmer northern waters, heralding the start of whale-watching season.

Western Australia has one of the longest whale-watching seasons in the world and Albany’s sheltered harbours are a prolific breeding ground where visitors can experience the thrill of seeing these majestic ocean giants.

Humpback, southern right and the rare blue whales visit Albany’s waters during winter where they frolic, mate and calve. 

Some of the best spots to catch sight of whales from shore includes the Ellen Cove Boardwalk, Discovery Bay, Marine Drive lookouts, Cheyne Beach, Camp Quaranup, Gull Rock, Bald Head and Middleton Beach.
