Every year from the months of June to November, Humpback whales migrate thousands of kilometres from the poles to warmer breeding waters near the Australian coasts of Queensland. While enjoying the warmer ocean waves they breed and give birth to baby whales and teach life skills to prepare them for survival in freezing Antarctica waters. As the mighty sea creatures make their way up the coast, at certain points they pass by various spots that make it convenient for Whale Watchers or tourists to experience sightings of interaction of the Humpback Whales up close.
Being one of the most common spots for these stunning interactions between the Whales makes Queensland as one of the whales watching capital of Australia with almost certain sightings on calm, serene as well as sheltered waters.
