An iconic activity on the Gold Coast is whale watching. Seeing the majestic whales play, breach and blow in their natural habitat is breathtaking.
On the Gold Coast, the whale-watching season lasts five months, generally from late May to October. The humpback whale's 5000-kilometre journey is among the world's longest animal migrations. To mate and give birth to their young before making the long journey back, they leave the freezing seas of the Antarctic and travel north along Australia's east coast to the warmer waters of Queensland.
Numerous cruises can provide an exhilarating and enlightening tour. With your loved ones, you should unquestionably go whale watching.
